Our class teacher is Miss Taffs.
Our teaching assistants are Mrs Dewey and Mrs Costas.
Our topic this term is the 'Stone Age'.
We are going to start our topic with a fantastic trip to Kent Life, immersing ourselves into Stone Age life and discovering how people lived in Britain in times gone by. We are going to develop a chronological understanding of the events in the Stone Age, using our mathematical knowledge to work out how long ago such events happened. We will explore what life was like for early settlers, looking at houses, clothes, food and weapons. As a class we will study a range of cave paintings, piecing together a picture from the past from the historical clues. We will finish our topic by identifying similarities and differences between given periods in history.
We will continue our topic learning in English. We will be writing diary entries as if we have jumped into the Stone Age, as well as writing a newspaper report based on the discoveries at Skara Brae.
In Maths, we are moving onto looking at fractions. We will start by finding fractions of amounts and recognising and counting in 1/10ths. We will show equivalent fractions and order fractions, using a range of mathematical resources to support our understanding. We will challenge ourselves to add and subtract fractions up to 1, before then applying our knowledge of fractions to solve problems. Towards the end of the term, Year 3 will be consolidating their knowledge of written multiplication and division methods. We will continue with our ongoing learning challenge of recalling our multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables, using Times Table Rockstars to help us!
Our Science topic this term is 'Light'. We will be investigating surfaces that reflect light and recognising how shadows are formed, finding patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.
Our Religious Education topic this term is 'Salvation'. We will be exploring why Christians call the day that Jesus died 'Good Friday'.
We will also be developing our vocabulary in French, learning the days of the week and the months of the year.
P.E is every Wednesday afternoon.
Forest school is every other Friday. Forest school is having a rest and therefore, the next forest school session will be after the February half term. Please ensure you have the correct forest school kit, wellies and a suitable coat.
