Spring 1 - Can we save the rainforests?

Welcome to Spring 1! 


Our learning challenge question is ‘Can you save the rainforests?’ We will be learning about a very current topic in our world at the moment, exploring how much danger the Amazon and other major rainforests are in. If we continue the way we are, there will be no more rainforests in 100 years! We will learn about what the rainforest is used for, what lives there and how we can save it.


PE and dance

This half term dance is every Tuesday and PE is every Thursday. Please ensure your child has full PE kit for both days


Science- animals including humans 

This topic is all about animals and humans and what they need to live a healthy, balanced life style. This links with diet, exercise, muscles and skeletons. We will look more closely at the human body but also we will make some comparisons to the bodies of animals too. Do you know how many bones are in an adult human body? Do adults and children have the same number of bones? How do we make our bodies move? All will be revealed this half term! 


Keep your eyes peeled below for exciting updates on our learning this half term!


Wow check out our awesome topic homework! Super impressed with the effort year 3 have made!

We created some beautiful art work based on the work of artist Georgia O’Keefe. We took a 2D image and used collage to give it a 3D effect.

Year 3 topic homework- return by Wednesday 12th February 2020

Year 3 are learning all about the rainforests throughout the world and the affects that human consumption is having on the plants and animals that inhabit them. This half term we would like you to get creative and design your own rainforest in a box! See some images below for inspiration. Alternatively, if you do not want to get artsy then here are some additional ideas you might like to do for your topic homework:

  • Create a detailed information poster on a rainforest of choice.
  • Create a PowerPoint presentation about the rainforest.
  • Create an information booklet about the plants and animals in the rainforest.
  • Write a letter/poster for how we can look after the rainforest.
  • Create a rainforest sound scape using instruments/ items around the house and record.
