We have made a fantastic start in year 3. We have been focussing on key skills to become better organised and to become more independent learners.
We have impressed other classes with our behaviour outside of the classroom, often having the smartest line in the playground! Keep it up Y3!
We have already completed many exciting parts of our topic on Prehistoric Britain. The trip to Creswell Crags was a particular highlight where the children had a taste of life in the Stone Age. Stunning art work has also been produced by the children and can be seen hanging in our class cave, along with our friend “Woolly” the Woolly mammoth.
To also link with our topic , in science we are studying rocks– we have been learning about how rocks are formed and over the next few weeks, we will be carrying out different experiments to identify different rocks and their properties.
The children are enjoying our class stories – The Stone Age Boy, Stig of the Dump and Flat Stanley and lots of work English work has been based around these books.
We are really impressed with Year 3s enthusiasm in maths – our main focus this half term being place value, addition, the 6 and 8 times tables and shape. Lots of investigating is taking place in the classroom and lots of measuring too. The children are keen to get into our measuring area, being able to use number in a real context.
Here is the start of the year newsletter with important information for the exciting year ahead.
