Power of Reading

Year 3 – Greatest Show:

During this topic in Year 3, we are looking at the text ‘Leon and the Place Between’ and will have focused projects linked from this to guide our learning.

Our first project will be to use our DT (Design Technology) skills to create a moving toy that represents a performance from the circus. We will be researching different toys, creating a plan, following instructions to create a cam mechanism and then using this to help us make our product. Once we have completed the product we will then evaluate our work against the brief to check that it is fit for purpose.

The second focus will be with Music. We will be looking at the classic piece of music linked to the circus and using music vocabulary to explore this. Following this, we will then begin to create our own music soundscape to coincide with our circus topic. We will plan our ideas initially before beginning to use our music skills to craft a piece of music.

In PE (Physical Education) we will be taking inspiration from the acrobats and performers in the circus and be expanding our knowledge on gymnastics.

All of our hard work will come together to produce a celebration event for parents and carers to attend at the end of the topic.
