Welcome to Year 3 - Autumn 2017

Maths

The first two weeks this term have seen us helping Carl the caveman to understand the place value of numbers! We have been using lots of noticing, making links and reasoning to strectch our learning muscles.

Science

We are extremely excited about our science investigations this term! We are learning about rocks and fossils. This week we have been observing, describing and classifying different types of mystery rocks.

Stone Age Day

Children loved their day in Dowson Woods where they collaborated in their house groups to create their own Stone Age shelters. We had a great little village of 4 houses, each containing very imaginative items such as wooden beds, fences and tables! Mr Kilpatrick helped us to light a fire, before we enjoyed cooking our own marshmallows and toast! Some of us even began to make our own Stone Age tools and weapons that might have been used for hunting!

Year 3(4)

As part of our Learning Challenge 'The Croods - Fact or Fiction?' We watched some scences from 'The Croods' and have been investigating the lives of people from the Neolithic (Stone Age) period. Children have loved working towards our project of creating a Stone Age museum and can't wait to find out more!

Ask your children to explain what they have been learning so far...

Neolithic Art

English

This year we are continuing our 'write like an author' project and are very excited to be discovering how authors make their writing exciting and how we can immitate others and combine our ideas to create our own amazing writing! Our book this half term is 'The Borrowers' by Mary Norton. Children loved collaborating and using their imagination to think of what uses the Borrowers would have for our every day items. They will be using these ideas to plan, draft, edit and compose their own stories based upon the book.

Stone Age Science Museum

This is what we have been working towards and finally the day has arrived! We loved showing our grown-ups what we had learned, especially getting them to take part in our woodwork and science challenges!

Chocolate: imagining, making and tasting!

This half term we have been reserching, designing, making and even tasting our very own chocolate! It was great having our grown-ups in to visit and they loved tasting the weird and wonderful chocolates that we made...
The only problem was that they wanted more! cheeky

Borrower Houses

This half term we have been working with Mrs Taylor to design and create our own houses for the Borrowers that have been living in our classrooms! We stretched lots of our lerarning muscles whilst doing this, especially our imagination!
