Year 3 will be taught by Mrs McCalmont and Mrs Ashworth.

Our topic this term is Stone Age to Iron Age

We will be identifying what a stone age person was, then move onto looking at how life changed in the stone age with the beginnings of farming,

We will also do a case study of Skara Brae  – looking at what life was like during the stone age and how this is represented in the findings from Skara Brae.

After that, we will then move onto the Bronze Age and focus on Stone Henge.

In English, will be reading the texts How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth and Stone Age Boy  to write instructions and a first person recount.

We will also be using non-fiction texts and online research to create an information leaflet about visiting Stone Henge.

We will be using the fantastic Power Maths scheme for all our maths lessons, which will cover the entire Year 3 curriculum.

We will also be practising times tables weekly and taking part in weekly Big Maths arithmetic and menatl maths sessions.

In Science, our topic is Light. We will be investigating how shadows form and change.

We will also be conducting an experiment on how light affects shadows..

In RE we are exploring The Trinity, exploring Christian beliefs and the baptism ceremony. We will also be learning about Christmas traditions and what it means to Christians.

We have PE on a Thursday with our PE coach Mr Downs, please send your child to school wearing their full PE kit. We also have dance on Fridays but do not need PE kits for this.
