Welcome to Picasso - Year 3!
The learning in Year 3 Picasso Class is led by Miss Church and Mrs Lewis Nelson.
Year 3 have started the new school year full of happiness, laughter and a real commitment to following our new routines. I am, truly, so incredibly proud of each and every one of them for how they are adjusting back into school life.
Our key concept this half term is motivation. We will be thinking about what this means, how we show it and the effect it has on other people. We will be linking this concept to the Unlock Education campaign.
RE learning addresses Creation and Fallallowing children to really immerse themselves in the Christian concept of God's wonderful world. Daily worship is carried out and I am so pleased that I have had lots of volunteers already to be the class prayer leader.
Our curriculum revolves around this concept and also looks at other areas. In History, we will be learning about prehistoric Britain, from the Stone Age to the Iron age. In Art, we will be considering the works of our class namesake, Pablo Picasso, and creating our own works in his colourful style. PE learning will keep us active with an outdoor adventurous activities module and some more precise gymnastics sessions. In computing, the children will adore using 2Simulate in Purple Mash to engage with simulations. Our PSHCE focuses very closely on inclusive and respectful relationships, very important for this stage of term. To kickstart our French learning, the children will be explored to French instructions and vocabulary throughout the week as well as during the lesson itself. Following Covid guidance, our Music is an adapted unit concentrating on the wonderful song - Let Your Spirit Fly. Ask your child for a rendition! Investigating light and shadows is our engaging Science focus.
In Year 3, there are four very important things that we try to remember:
-to be kind in many different ways
-to find fun in our learning
-to be honest
-to think about how special and precious we all are.
Our world is a wonderful place, filled with incredible nature, places and people. We will be exploring this world, and our CKS world too, throughout the year.
Stage One is short term Remote Education Support (RES) as most families who are awaiting Covid 19 test results are off for 2 to 3 days.

We would expect that if the child is not symptomatic that this work will be completed. If your child is poorly, we would ask you to make the judgement as to what you feel they can or can’t do.
