This half term our topic is THE STONE AGE TO IRON AGE, focussing on the Bronze & Iron Ages. We will be looking at life in these times and how they changed.
This half term we will be looking at the church, Reconciliation and Lent.
In English we will be developing our reading, writing, spellings and grammar skills through a range of fiction and non-fiction writing opportunities - The focus this half term will be on historical fiction - linked to the Stone Age and The Croods video - the children will be writing a descriptive setting, thinking about the descriptive language they can incorporate in their writing. We will be writing a diary, in character, linked to our Growth Mindset week and will also be writing a biography on the life of Nelson Mandela. Key speaking and listening skills will be extended through role plays and drama.
Guided Reading sessions and reading across the curriculum will enable children to develop a love of reading. Please help your child by listening to them read for 10-20mins every night! Reading Records should be signed regularly and they will be collected every Wednesday for a member of staff to sign. Children can only change their reading books on a Wednesday, due to the current situation. If they forget to bring in their book to change, they will have to wait until the following Wednesday. All returned books will be placed in a box and left for a week, before being returned to the library.
In Maths we will consolidate children's understanding of multiplication & division, looking at mental and written methods. We will also look at money. Children will be challenged to apply the skills learnt to gain a deeper understanding of the application of mathematical concepts in the real world.
Keep learning your times tables - You should know your 2s, 5s and 10s from Year 2!
- Year 3 will focus on 3s, 4s and 8s.
Homework - Log on to TT Rockstars to practice those timestables and weekly activities will be set on My Maths, based on the topics being covered in class. All children are expected to complete the weekly activities set on My Maths and this will be followed up in class.
In Science we will be learning about Light and shadows. How we are able to see and how light can reflect off different surfaces.
In Topic we will be looking at life during the Bronze and Iron Ages and investigating Bronze and Iron Age settlements remaining today. We will also be continuing our art work on Stone Age Cave Paintings, thinking about adding a third dimension to our drawings and how to draw with texture.
