Autumn 1 


Geography & History

We have been learning all about the United Kingdom this half term. The children have identified places that they have visited in the UK for their homework and we have used maps and atlases to identify UK cities, rivers and seas. The children have also studied our county of Lancashire and created a fact file. In History we are learning all about our local area and how it has changed over the years.


The children have enjoyed visiting the ICT Suite and using the iPads this half term in Computing. They have used their Purple Mash logins to create avatars and have been learning all about typing.


The children have thoroughly been enjoying using their 'Junior' sketchbooks in Art. They have been learning sketching and shading techniques using different medias to draw images of fruits and vegetables. 


We have been learning gymnastics this half term in PE. The children have worked independently, in pairs and in small groups to...

  • Travel in different ways
  • Perform 1, 2, 3 and 4 point balances
  • Work on different gymnastics equipment 
  • Create sequences 
Also in PE Year 3 have been learning how to play invasion games. The children have learnt teamwork skills, chest passes and bounce passes. 
This half term the children also had the opportunity to participate in a Ju Jitsu taster session. The children learnt some basic moves that are used in this type of martial art. Several children from Year 3 have since joined the local Ju Jitsu club!
