We had a Religious Education (RE) visitor, Mr. Hope, who taught us about the Christmas story and how Christians celebrate this special time of the year. We watched some short videos, read from the Bible, completed word searches and had a quiz on what we had learnt. We had a great time!
Friday 6th October 2017 Our Different day
Stone Age Art
Using different materials collected from the playground we designed and created our own Stone Age camps. We also painted some hunting scenes on rocks in the style of cave paintings.
In our classroom we created a cave and decorated it with Stone Age spray paintings. It looks amazing!!
Welcome to a new school year in Year 3
This half term we are going to be learning all about:
This term our topic is "The Stone Age".
In History we will be learning about cave man, exploring timelines and researching facts about this period in the history of our country.
We will be reading lots of interesting books about this topic for instance "The Stone Age Boy" by Satoshi Katamura.
In English we will be revising basic skills: capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, adjectives, conjunctions and punctuation. We will be describing characters and settings, looking at the present and past tense of common verbs.
In Maths we will be focusing on Place value by partitioning, ordering and comparing numbers.
Please encourage your child to practise their timetables!
Science - We are going to be studying "Rocks and fossils". Children will be involved in some practical work and experiments.
PE - Our lessons take place on Tuesday afternoons. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school to allow them to take part in every lesson.
Homework will be sent home on Friday and needs to be completed and returned by Wednesday.

Our First Different Day
Today we investigated facts about people's lives in the "Stone Age" period. We looked at their houses, food and clothing.
In Art we designed our own clothes in the style of "Cave man" and in D.T. we made them using a variety of resources: plastic black bin bag liners, animal patterned furry fabrics and lots of sellotape!!
At the end of the day we had our "Cat Walk" during Praise Assembly.
