Welcome to Class HA

A great big welcome to WJS and to life in Year 3.  

Summer 1  Year 3 – Superheroes.

Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?  No... it is someone from H.A. practising their superhero skills.  

We are all suerheroes and have our own strengths.  H.A. will be deciding what their super powers are this half term. We will be finding out all about Hercules, Medusa and the Minotaur as we read Greek myths and then create our own. 

Our class story is Icarus and his flight too close to the sun. What can we learn from this myth? 

Imagine if your special power was to be able to hear everything.  In science we investigate sound.  How do we hear? How does sound travel? How can I create my own instrument? 

These Greek myths take place around Crete and the Greek islands - can we locate them using our mapping skills? 

At the end of term we will host our own Greek restaurant making our own food and sharing it with our guests.  There will be an art gallery at this event created by us with displays of Greek pots and art work. There may be a Greek dance too!

It is all Greek to me .... well it will be in  M.F.L. as we learn Greek and spell our names using the Greek alphabet. 

In P.E we are learning the skills of tennis and preparing for our own tournament 'Writtledon'.  We had better start preparing the courts and the strawberries!

Finally, in R.E. we learn about Hindu Gods and Godesses and compare them with the Greek Gods.  Are there any ways in which they are similar?
