Term 1

Maths

This term we will be using our growth mindset to focus on place value, addition and subtraction. We will be consolidating and building upon on our mathematical skills to reason and problem solve effectively.

Remember to keep practising your multiplication and division skills on TT Rockstars.

Can you test your addition and subtraction knowledge on NumBots?

To begin the term, we will be exploring the text 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers. As a whole school we will be collectively exploring a variety of important themes to help settle us back into school life. The children will consider the importance of community, kindness, diversity, equality, belonging, action for change and the environment. 

We used old materials and reused them to create a wishing well. After that, we decided it was our responsibility to start thinking about how we can help the environment and make the world a better place. We created pledges and threw our pennies into the wishing well.

One step at a time, Year 3 will make the world a better place!  

 

Our first Power of Reading text is ‘UG: Stone Age Boy’ which links perfectly to our topic. The children will write diaries about a day in the life of a Stone Age boy and poems about the differences between then and now. Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) is also taught daily in Year 3. We will use various strategies to learn each week’s spellings as well as learning about different grammatical techniques to make our writing fantastic.

 

Topic

 

Prepare to travel back in time with us on our ‘Pre-historic adventures’ where we will experience life through the ages. Our first topic will take us back in time to the Stone Age where we will learn to live like real cavemen! The children will unearth ancient objects, experience cooking by an open fire, they will create cave paintings, write mysterious, cryptic messages and build dazzling dens. 

We travelled back in time to visit the Stone Age! A day full of cave paintings, cooking on an open fire and creating jewellery out of animal bones and teeth. What a day to remember! 

Science

Are you ready scientists? Pop on your goggles and grab your lab coats! To start the year off we will be looking at fossils and rocks from pre-historic times. We will be using our scientific skills to investigate, explore and identify a variety of rocks.
