Welcome to Year 3SM.
Thankyou for visiting our class page. In Year 3 we love to learn and we're always trying to make learning as fun as possible.
This term we are studying the fabulous historical topic of World War II. With so much to learn about, we would love you to get involved and find out as much as you can about this significant era in world history. In class we will be investigating a local war hero and asking 'What was life like for him and his children during World War II?' To help us find the answer to this key question we will complete a number of activities such as:
-Watching The Sound of Music and discussing Austria’s involvement in the war
-Going on a Geography field trip to a local war memorial and church
-Researching, designing and building air-raid shelters in design and technology
-Writing a biography on our local war hero
-Investigating the 'little ships of Dunkirk' and completing English work by reading the book 'Little Ships' by Louise Borden
-Creating a Blitz picture using watercolour and silhouettes
-Debating some of ethical questions the war raises in P4C
...and many, many more interesting things.
We will also be visiting Stockport Air Raid Shelters to see what it would have felt like to visit a real shelter during a bombing raid.
There are so many interesting resources online, in the library and in museums that can boost our understanding of this subject so please use your time this term to do as much digging as you possibly can.
Please don't hesitate to come and see us if you have any queries.
