Year 3 2021 - 2022
Meet the Team
In Year 3 this half term, we have been learning all about the Stone Age. We have talked about how life was different for people living in that time, including how they got food, what they ate, where they lived and how they dressed. We have also thought about how we know about the past, thinking about important discoveries by archaeologists which have taught us about the Stone Age.
In Science, we have been learning all about rocks. We have sorted and classified them using their shared properties and have even learned about how fossils are formed and what soil is made of.
In Literacy, we have been working on improving our writing, choosing more exciting adjectives and extending our sentences in a range of different ways. Most of our work this half term has been using our class text, ‘Stone Age Boy’.
In Guided Reading, we have continued to develop important reading skills to help us understand what we are reading, including inference, retrieval, summarising and predicting. We have also done lots of work on the vocabulary used within different texts, to make sure we understand everything we are reading.
In Maths, we have worked on developing our place value knowledge, thinking about the value of each of the digits in 3-digit numbers. We have used this to help us to order and compare numbers and have also developed our skills to find 10 more and less and even 100 more and less. We have also begun working on our times tables, extending our knowledge to begin learning the 3, 8 and 4 times tables.
In Computing, we have learned about how computers are connected to each other. We have also begun learning French, thinking about simple greetings, numbers and colours.
As part of our Music lessons, we have begun learning the violin. This will continue weekly throughout the year and we cannot wait to see how our skills progress!
