Opal Class Summary of Learning Autumn 2017



Opal (Yr3)


 Autumn term 2017 learning fun

Welcome back everyone to the new term.

The children have been having lots of fun learning about The Stone Age, fossil formation and lots more.

We were acting out hunting and killing wild beasts, which helped us produce exciting and descriptive writing.

We also looked at many types of rocks and fossils.

In gymnastics we have been trying different rolls and jumps.

 We have been using ICT to design a game where Stone Age man has to move around the screen collecting objects. We used the Scratch programme. We then looked at each others game and said what was good about them and what could make them  even better.


In maths we have been discovering all sorts of interesting facts about angles. We used Pacman to search for right angles and then made angle measurers to make, right angles, acute and obtuse angles.

Super learning with parents

 Mrs Corrigan came in to help us with our learning all about the skeleton and bones. We loved it and learned lots of fascinating facts!

In R.E. we were studying Hinduism, learning about the faith and learning from it. We were really pleased to have Mrs. Hancock in class who showed us some really interesting artefacts and shared with us, many aspects of Hindu festivals. We loved the idea of Holi! 


Making maths fun!

   We enjoy using equipment and models and images to help us understand number even more clearly. You can use it with really big numbers and even show decimals!
