Year 3 GA

Welcome to the Y3GA Page!



Over the past few weeks, we have been focussing on addition and subtraction. We used expanded column addition and subtraction to begin with when exchanging just ones and tens, but have now moved onto standard column addition and subtraction when adding 3-digit numbers. 










As part of our topic, we are exploring instructional texts and poetry. So far we have created our own instruction text for 'How to wash a Woolly Mammoth' and have now moved onto innovating the well-known poem 'The Owl and the Pussy-cat' by Edward Lear. 


Below are some example of our writing and learning activities.


’How to wash a Woolly Mammoth’ 
















You can scan the QR codes to watch our performance of 'The Owl and the Pussy Cat' poem. 







Other Curriculum Areas:


In Art we have been making Stone Age jewellery and creating our own cave paintings.

In Computing, we have been learning about e-Safety and the laws in place for different apps and the reasons why. We made e-Safety posters to demonstrate our understanding of everything we learnt. 







Other celebrations


We learnt about the 100 year anniversary of Armistice Day and created some art work using a range of medias to commemorate this occasion. 















Halloween Disco


We had great fun at our first Halloween disco. A huge thank you to Amberley PFTA for organising this event.
