Welcome to Year 3
Welcome back to school to begin a new start in year 3.
This term we are really getting our teeth in to learning about the Stone Age and Iron Age in History lessons. We have found the links between the Stone Age and understanding DT and Art, thrilling! We are beginning to make our own Stone Age huts in DT- they will even have waterproof roofs! We will also look at creating our own Stone Age art and the way this has changed in to modern Art.
In Science we are going to be exploring lot of exciting concepts, including 'Humans including animals' and 'Solids, liquids and gases'. In both of these we will have the opportunity to explore them through a variety of experiments and other activities.
We have enjoyed reading the story 'The Paper Bag Princess' and have become familiar with the characters in the story. We have also spoken in depth about the make up of their Fairy Tales and the details that we may find within an unusual Fairy Tale. In doing this, we are aiming to write our own Fairy Tales with lots of exciting new vocabulary and amazing punctuation.
Year 3 have been working hard on their understanding of number and consolidating the learning we gained in year 2. We are becoming confident in understanding how we use our understanding of number in everyday life and how this will impact our learning.
