Educating the Whole Child

Year 3

Autumn Term 2


We are extremely proud of all the hard work year 3 has completed over this half term. During our history topic, we have learnt all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We enjoyed a trip to Andover’s Iron Age museum where we explored artefacts, made models of roundhouses and created our own Iron Age characters. In English, we have been focusing on prepositions and organising our work into paragraphs with sub-headings, through writing instructions based on the text ‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’. The children really worked hard on using detailed vocabulary to ensure Stone Age people would know how to take good care of a pet mammoth. Our science topic has been animals including humans. We have looked at food groups we need to eat to be healthy and we did an investigation to find out how much sugar is in different drinks. We also learnt about invertebrates and vertebrates and the skeleton and muscles in a human body. We braved the mud and cold to enjoy a morning of tree planting very close to school, in Bury Hill. It was fantastic to see the children getting stuck in with measuring, digging and placing mulch around their different trees. We want to wish all the children and families a very happy Christmas break. We look forward to seeing you all in January for another great term.

Autumn Term 1


We are so proud of the way Year 3 have started at Anton Juniors. We have had a brilliant half term full of learning and fun. We have enjoyed finding out about the Lake District in geography and have created some beautiful landscape paintings in art. In Science, we have learnt all about plants and pollination and have carried out some experiments to find out what plants need to survive. The children have produced some fantastic pieces of descriptive writing in English and worked extremely hard across a range of topics in maths. We can’t wait for another fantastic half term with the Foxes and Owls after the break.
