Welcome to our Year 3 class page!
Here you'll find out all about what we're up to this term plus links to useful learning resources.
 Welcome to a brand new Year! 
 
We're super excited to be in Year 3 and feeling very grown up as part of Key Stage 2!
We're ready for a fun and challenging year filled with lots of awesome learning experiences and great opportunities to be the best we can be!
 
Our project for this term is called
EXTRAORDINARY ENGINEERING
Which was the hardest to build: The Clifton Suspension Bridge or The Great Pyramid?
 
During this term we will be learning all about amazing engineers and the extraordinary things they made.  We will start by exploring Banwell village looking at evidence of its historical past as well as visiting SS Great Britain and The Clifton Suspension Bridge, both cleverly designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In Term 2 our focus will change to Ancient Egypt and the incredible feats of engineering that they achieved, especially building the pyramids!
Below are the project letters and project maps.   
Homework is set every Friday and due in the following Wednesday. Here in Year 3 we run  a grid system. At the start of each term you will be set 9 homework tasks in a grid. These can be completed one per week in any order across the term. You can chose which task you do each week, meaning you can do small task on weeks when you have less time and save larger tasks for when you got a bit more time - whatever works for you! The grid will be stuck in the front of your homework book and you can tick them off each week as you complete them. A copy of the grid can also be found below.
