Half term information Autumn 1 2021

In Year 3 we love our local area and this half term we have been celebrating Cambourne and all that it has to offer. We have used our map skills to locate our own homes, local facilities and have even designed new landmarks that we think could make Cambourne an even better place to live in the future. Our English work this half term focussed on the story Voices in the Park and went on to write and illustrate our own voice for the park in the style of the Author, Anthony Browne. In maths we have explored place value, addition and subtraction using lots of equipment and opportunities to apply our learning outdoors.  In science we continued to explore the wonder of plants by learning about photosynthesis, the function of all the different parts of a plant, its lifecycle and by dissecting a flower. We also did several observational experiments over time to understand more about roots and their function. In computing we made sure that everyone is safe online as well as being able to use data to present graphs. We enjoyed getting to know all your children more and meeting you at parents evening, thank you for your ongoing support.
