Welcome to Year 3 Chestnut Class!

Our spring term started with the exciting IPC topic ‘Footprints from the Past’ where we have been learning about different dinosaurs from the Mesozoic era, understanding how rocks and fossils are created, and sharing our research on the pioneering palaeontologist Mary Anning. We launched our IPC topic by taking on the role of palaeontologists and carefully dug out our very own dinosaurs. The unit links very closely with our Power of Reading book ‘The Pebble in my Pocket’ which follows the journey of a pebble through the history of the Earth. We are really looking forward to following up our learning by going on our first class trip to the Natural History Museum in the coming weeks.

We have been loving our salsa dancing classes as part of this half term’s PE lessons – we are able to demonstrate the cucaracha and son moves to name a couple. Not only are we enjoying the dancing, but the music is great too!

Next half-term our focus will be on poetry in English, continuing our learning of multiplication and division in maths, as well as learning about how humans work in IPC Science.
