Year 3 Long Term Plan

Autumn 2

Mini Mission 2 - The Dragon's Hoard

 

In this mini mission the children will carry out an in-depth study of the Vikings by looking at the invasions, longboats, houses and sagas. In guided reading, they will explore the themes of the Viking sagas and in English, they will draw on their understanding to write their own version of The Dragon’s Hoard. In Science, children will investigate the functions of the skeleton, the names of bones and the need for a healthy diet and in DT they will design and make a moving muscle.

 

 

Viking Invasion!

 

One morning whilst we were doing the register we heard a strange, horn sound and then a Viking entered the classroom. We were very surpised as we had never seen a Viking before so after he had introduced himself, we followed him to his camp in the schoo hall. There was a big tent, lots of armour and weapons and the Viking told us all about his life and stories about the Viking Gods. We all joined in with Viking games and heped to tell stoires and then we were shown how the Vikings made fires and cooked their food. It was a great day and it really helped us with our learning.

Autumn 1

Mini Mission 1 - Charlie Small Gorilla City

 

Throughout this mini mission in English, we will be learning how to write a detailed description of the rainforest using effective adjectives, verbs, adverbs and sentence openers. In Geography we will learn the location of the 7 continents and the 5 oceans of the world and will look closely at the rainforest biome, its layers and its importance. We will also look at deforestation and the impacts on the environment. In science we will look at plants, taking an in-depth look at water transportation. In Art we will use natural materials to create a print that represents the rainforest. 

 

 

This is the text we are reading in class... 

 

One morning, Year 3 arrived at school to find that there were vines and creepers in the classroom! There were parrots, a frog and a monkey too! Then a letter arrived from someone called Charlie's mum asking for help to find her lost son, Charlie! After that a cut up picture arrived with a note asking which ocean someone had sailed over! Things were getting curious...the map was a map of the world which we used to find out where Charlie could have gone. Wherever could he be? Mrs Collinson gave us a book to read all about Charlie Small, we discovered that he had been struck by lightning while sailing his raft down the stream at the bottom of his garden. We can't wait to find out more!
