Autumn 1

We Will Rock You!

Welcome to our Stone Age topic.

Here we will be looking at the Stone Age throughout our topic lessons which links into our science study of rocks and fossils.


What a busy week we have had. The children have had a brilliant end to their first half term in year 3. We have had two science shows and a STEM day where we made our own monster moving vehicle! Have a look at the pictures to see all the fun!


We have had lots of fun activities this week. In our maths we have been looking at addition and subtraction as well as trying to improve our speed for our mental maths. We investigated and classified soil in science and we had some fun in R.E. creating paper chains and learning about Sukkot, a Jewish festival. We have also practiced our new Harvest song ready for next week! 


Another great week. This week we have finished writing our Stone Age boy stories and they are brilliant! We are now looking at expanded noun phrases as we describe the characters in a Where's Wally book! The big one this week was that we looked at Stone Age artefacts and we discussed what we can learn from these artefacts. We also had a very unpleasant delivery from the natural history museum where we had to discover what a Stone Age man eats! The children, I am sure, will tell you more!


We have had another excellent week and the children went on a rock hunt around school. We looked and classified different rocks based on their appearances. We also managed to get an extra P.E. lesson this week with Miss Simpson our P.E. coach were we did lots of different team building games!


Another week done! Well done to all the children working hard this week. We got upto all sorts. We have started to look at how we are going to write our diary entry for the Stone age boy in our literacy lessons. In maths we have been measuring and looking at the perimeter. We managed to go onto the playground and measure the perimeter aswell as measuring the perimeter of some shapes. 

One of the highlights was definitely our science experiment which we were able to eat. We can now explain how a fossil is made using only bread and a sweet!


We had an absolute blast on our trip and it was definitely the highlight of the week. The children learnt so much and had so much fun whilst doing so. Have a look at our pictures below!

They're ready!

We had a brilliant first full week and we got up to all sorts. We focused on place value and partition numbers into H,T,U aswell as write an alternative ending for our Cave Baby story!

We had our first music lesson and even started our new Topic and Science!

Swimming was a great success too!
