Once again, this half term Year 3 have worked incredibly hard, engaging in a variety of interesting and fun activities.


In Science this half term, our focus has been rocks and soils. The children enjoyed studying rocks in class, with the opportunity to study them through microscopes. They were fascinated during the Science lesson on the history of Mary Anning, who first discovered fossils many years ago.


In Art, the children produced some beautiful Aboriginal paintings of Australian animals. Before putting paint to paper, the children observed and discussed Aboriginal art and learnt to mix colours to achieve their desired shades.


In Geography, the children learnt about changes in our local area, discussing The Queen’s Square and how it differs now from when it was first opened by the Queen, as well as the pros and cons of developing an area. The children also created bar charts about their favourite things to do in Hemel.


The children have thoroughly enjoyed their swimming lessons this half term and are looking forward to continuing them into the summer term. Another highlight this half term was World Book Day when everyone had the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book character.


Next half term in Year 3 we begin our topic on the Ruthless Romans. During Guided Reading we will be focusing on developing our comprehension and language. In Art we will be creating mosaics and we will be using artefacts in History to develop our knowledge of the Romans.


Well done Year 3 for a fantastic half term, keep up all the brilliant work. As ever, thank you for your continued support and we hope you enjoy a relaxing holiday!
