The children have settled straight back into their learning after the holiday and are engaging in our new topic: Digging Up The Past.
During this term we will be exploring the changes from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, culminating in a trip to the Chiltern Open Air Museum (more details to follow). In English we will be looking at Stone Age Boy and The Boy With The Bronze Axe. In maths we will continue to focus on our 3,4 & 8 times tables and use this knowledge to support us with multiplication and division, as well as exploring statistics and shapes. Our science work this term will introduce the topics of plants and light, as well as deepening our learning of magnets and forces.
Welcome to Year 3
In Year 3, our learning is cross-curricular and is led by the needs and interests of the children. We are very excited about this term’s topic, ‘Wonderful lands’. In English we will be reading ‘Alice in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll and our learning will be focussed around this novel. We will be writing a sequence of diary entries, composing and performing poetry and writing information texts. In geography, our topic will be Mountains and Rivers. We will be locating mountains and rivers across Europe and looking at their natural wonder. In science, our topic is ‘Forces and Magnets’. We will observe magnetic forces and identify magnetic materials. In maths this term we will focus on our knowledge and understanding of addition and subtraction. We will also look at money and our 3,4,8 times tables.
