Year Three

Year 3 will be taught by Miss Nelson, Mrs Wassall and Mrs Barrie


Autumn Term : The Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age

Our topic for this term is The Stone Age to the Iron Age. During this topic we will be learning about the three time periods, where they lived, ate and how they survived. We will also create some cave paintings, Stonehenge, tools and pottery in art.

In English, the books we will be focusing on are How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth, Stone Age Boy and Stonehenge. We will be writing instructions, recounts, narratives and a non-chrobnological report based on these books. We will also be focusing on editing and improving our writing. 


                                      'Rock Up with the Early Britons' Workshop

This term we had a special visitor come into our class. An archaeologist named 'Indiana Bones' taught us all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. He had us dress up, look at tools and act out the three different time periods. It was so much fun and we learned lots of new information!

 We can't wait to continue learning more about the Bronze Age and the Iron Age the rest of the term!
