Welcome to Year 3!
The Autumn term is set to be an exciting and productive time that we hope your child will enjoy.
This is what we will be covering:
Topic - Our main focus this term will be History and the children will be learning about The Stone Age through to the Iron Age.
Science - We will be studying Rocks and Soils. This will involve looking at rocks as well as a visit from a Geologist!
English - We will be looking at non-chronological reports and we will have Wednesday mornings with our school storyteller Maria. She will tell the children interactive stories as well as helping the children to become more confident and explore drama. We will be making links with our history topic throughout English.
Maths - We will be starting with place value and numbers to 1000 then moving onto addition and subtraction. We will also have multiplication and arithmetic workshops to develop these skills.
RE - We will look at role models, our heroes and begin to look at the religion of Islam.
Check out website pages regularly for updates on our exciting work!
Some of the children have kicked off the year to an excellent start by showing some fabulous home learning!
Keep them coming!
English - writing super sentences!
In English, we are going to be making our sentences super while learning all about the Stone Age! Here are some adjectives we came up with about Woolly Mammoths. We have been using noun phrases to describe them!
Science - Rocks.
We have started our learning of rocks by discussing what we already know about rocks and what we would like to find out. Let's hope we can be great geologists and dig for the answers!
