Year 3 pupils…
Firstly, a massive welcome back to all of Year 3 and their families. After a very strange summer term, I am sure lots of you are looking forward to getting back to normality and from a personal perspective, I am excited to start at Alban wood!
Your children have made an excellent start to the year, showing fantastic focus and an excitement for learning.
Our topic this half term is ‘Stone Age to the Iron Age’. During this topic, we will be looking at the changes that occurred to people’s lives during the Stone Age and using sources to compare the similarities and differences between the three periods. We will then look at the geography of Stone Age settlers and explore how they chose their particular settlements. We will also be looking at Stone Age art work and making our own making cave paintings!
In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and regrouping, counting on and back in ones, tens and hundreds and estimating, magnitude and rounding.
In English, we will be looking at instructions and fables.
Our science will be based on Animal’s including humans during the first half of the term and then forces and magnets during the second half term.
P.E is on a Monday and Tuesday but children need to have PE kits in school every day.
