Aspiring to excellence
The Year 3 pupils have finished a whole term at Hillborough Junior School already and what a first term they have had! The children have had an action packed term and have been taking part in their first enrichment activities. From debating, archery, baking to ultimate Frisbee, Year 3 have been participating in a range of different activities and learning a plethora of different skills. The Year 3 teachers are very happy with the effort and hard work that the pupils have shown this term. In literacy this term, pupils have been having class debates on whether animals should or shouldn't be kept in zoos. This linked very well with the exciting trip to Whipsnade Zoo, where the pupils learned many interesting facts about the animals that live there and how they are looked after. Year 3 have also been completing work on children's stories such as The Tunnel, Stone Age Boy (linked in with our history topic) and a poetry unit about an issue in the world they would like to change and make better.
The children have been learning lots in science and putting their scientific skills to the test. This term, pupils in Year 3 have been learning about animals including humans and rocks and soils. In maths, pupils have been getting to grips with place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Pupils have also been learning times tables, we would like pupils to carry on practicing these at home to support the work we do at school.
In D&T, children had the opportunity to create their own moving monsters! Here are some pictures of the excellent work they produced. In computing, the children have been learning about the importance of E-Safety and have working collaboratively on documents within Google Classroom
Well done Year 3 for completing your first term at Hillborough Junior School! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the Year 3 Staff.
