Welcome Autumn 2

Year 3 have been identifying key features of non-chronological reports

Children used the Ipads to identify landmarks linked to the Stone Age.

We have started to use our dictionary skills to help us find the correct spelling and definitions.

In music, we've experimented with body percussion!

Year 3 are really improving their editing skills!

Year 3 are busy practicing their weaving skills. Their inspiration has been taken from the artist Tammy Kanat.

Year 3 have been investigating Amesbury Archer's grave. They were archaeologists and then had to write a diary entry.

Children learnt the difference between a physical and human feature. They then used the Ipads to find where they were in England and locate the region.

Children are using their textile skills to make a purse. They're using different types of threading to personalise their purses.

Year 3 used drama to show significant a hill fort was for Iron Age people. Children know that people used hillforts for protection, meetings and gatherings with druids, battles and many other reasons.

In REAL P.E, children had to work together and work in unison to perfect a race with three legs! They had to march, walk, use high knees and even walk backwards. They had a great time!

Look at our beautiful weaving!

This term, we're going to learning all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age.  We will be using an enquiry question to help us learn as much as we can.


Would you have preferred to have lived in the Stone Age, Bronze Age or Iron Age?

Music Appraisal - To celebrate Black History Month, we listened and danced to the song, 'Jerusalema'. We discussed how the song made us feel and thoughts of words to describe our mood. We even played the song when children left school to meet their parents so they could discuss their learning.

Stone Age story planning and writing

Take a look at Year 3's fantastic collages inspired by Stone Age fires!

Geography - Year 3 are recapping on naming the countries of the UK, capital cities and the surrounding seas. We decided to do this by using the nature conservation area and using natural objects, we made the UK! This really helped them visualise the map of the British Isles!

Year 3 have been using different sources to find out what life was like for hunter-gatherers and farmers in the Stone Age.

Year 3 begun their Stone Age topic but using toilet paper (yes, toilet paper) to understand just how long ago Stone Age people came to Britain. This really helped them to understand just how ago it really was!

Children have been using sticks to count forwards and backwards in the Nature Conversation Area!

Active Learning - Mrs Thompson shouted out either and adjective or noun and children had to jump either to the left or right to show their understanding of different word classes.

It has been a busy week for Year 3!

Year 3 spent time in the Nature Conservation Area collecting sticks and other natural objects to spell their name. They really enjoyed this activity!

Computing - Year 3 tested out Scratch Junior to practise their coding skills!

Year 3 have been using different manipulatives to represent two and three-digit numbers. They did so well and even compared three-digit numbers using < and >.

Year 3 have been recapping on nouns and adjectives. They sorted the words into the correct columns and then went outside to play an active word class game.
