Year 3 Home Learning Update 1, by Mrs McAlynn
Date: 2nd Apr 2020 @ 1:34pm
Hello Year 3!
We hope you are all well and have enjoyed using your home learning packs over the past few weeks with your families. Here are a few more activities to keep you busy and learning while you are away from school.
Our text for the Summer Term is The Gruffalo- a story we all know very well! Can you complete the following activities based on the story?
- Create your own mythical character (like the Gruffalo) and draw a labelled diagram. Will your character have terrible tusks? Will it have orange horns?
- When you have created your character write a detailed description, trying to include adjectives, similes and alliteration.
- Can you use materials from your learning pack or around the house (with permission) to create a model or puppet of your character?
We would love to see any of the work you create shared on our school twitter or facebook page!
- Keep practising your joined handwriting each day, trying to keep your small letters regular, your ascenders tall and your descenders long.
- This week we would like you to all practise your 3 times table daily. Use the songs and activities on the BBC website to help you with this.
We hope you are being extra good at home for your family and helping out in any way that you can! We will be in touch soon!
Take care, Mr Woodland and Mrs McAlynn
Chester Zoo Theatre Workshop, by Mrs McAlynn
Date: 13th Dec 2019 @ 10:04am
Year 3 had a brilliant afternoon working with The Denbigh Workshop as part of our Wildlife Connections work with Chester Zoo. We learnt about the different ways we can support wildlife conservation in our own communities and why native species, such as hedgehogs and bees, are under threat. Thomas in Y3AM said "I learnt that if you find a poorly hedgehog you can feed them some catfood and water, and keep them warm." Riley in Y3RW said "I learnt that the weeds in your garden are good for hedgehogs and bees."
Edible Playground Wormery Year 3, by Mrs McAlynn
Date: 26th Nov 2019 @ 4:13pm
This afternoon Mrs McAlynn's class worked with our visitor Louise to build a wormery in the Edible Playground. We played a treasure hunt game to learn about the things worms like to eat, and we worked together to make our own wormery which we nicknamed 'The Wotel!'. We have made information posters to show pupils how to look after the worms correctly.
Chester Zoo 'Wildlife Connections'- Year 3, by Mrs McAlynn
Date: 26th Nov 2019 @ 3:56pm
We have loved learning more about wildlife each week with Alex from Chester Zoo. This week we learnt about how pollution and waste affects our environment, and the impact this has on our native wildlife. Did you know that a plastic bottle takes 450 years to break down? We played lots of different games to help us find out more facts.
Year 3 Come and Share, by Mrs McAlynn

We all had a lovely morning at our 'Come and Share' and were so glad that so many of our parents were able to join us. We used pastels to create firework artwork, we made spinning Catherine Wheels using our weaving skills and we created some Bonfire Night acrostic poetry.
