Welcome to Year 3!
We are very excited to welcome you to Year 3.
This term our topic is Stone Age to Iron Age, so we will be finding out lots about Stone Age life in our History and Geography lessons. We will be exploring the following questions:
- How did society and culture develop in these times?
- What natural resources were used to survive and thrive?
In Art, we will be creating some cave drawings and Design and Technology will involve us creating our own Stone Age house that is stable and rigid enough to keep someone safe from a predator. We will also be using computers to research and present a timeline of events from the Stone to the Iron Age.
In English, we will be covering narrative writing, recipes, persuasive letters, explanation texts as well as some poetry too. Our class reader for the term will be Stig of the Dump.
In Maths, we will begin with place value before progressing to addition and subtraction and multiplication and division.
Alongside this, we will also consider:
- What kind of world should we live in?
- How are shadows formed?
- How are different rocks and soils formed?
- Why are rules needed?
- How do my words affect different people around me?
PE days are every Tuesday and we will be covering football, rugby, hockey and basketball this term. We ask that the children come into school wearing their PE kits. Also, please ensure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed.
We have a busy and exciting term ahead and we are looking forward to getting started.
