Welcome to Class HA

A great big welcome to WJS and to the many adventures you'll have in Year 3!

Autumn 1  Year 3 – Location, Location, Location. 

Where will the trail end? 

This half term we will begin Year 3 by looking at our LOCATION in the school, village community, country and the world! 

We will be creating trails, treasure hunting and finding out how maps are made and designed.   Our topic is all about you finding your place in the WJS community especially at the start of your journey. Science leads us to look at our own bodies, the skeleton and the muscles within them. In design and technology we will be creating picture frames and we might even get to use the drone over the school to take aerial shots!

Our maths focuses on number work and finding out the skills you have and extending them.  We'll show you how we challenge ourselves at W.J.S.  In English, we will be finding out about Flat Stanley and what happened to him on his adventures!

We have a W.J.S. first this half term and Year 3 will be off to Stansted airport to find out how we can begin our adventures around the world. We will find out how we travel through the airport and look at where you can travel to from Stansted. We are hoping to talk to a pilot and we will have a great runway view to watch the planes.

So the question you need to ask is where will your WJS journey take you? .
