YYOur teacher is Miss Adams and our brilliant teaching assistant is Mrs Appleton. 

Welcome back to our Spring Term! This term, our topic will be 'Survival of the Fittest', looking at Pre-Historic Britain.

This term, Year 3 will be swimming on a Monday Afternoon, therefore swimming kits will need to be in school every Monday.

Year 3 will also be taking part in Forest School this term! Children will need to bring in their forest school kits (as stated on the letter) on a Tuesday. If children do not have their kits, they will not be able to attend forest school.

PE will take place on a Friday Afternoon, therefore both indoor and outdoor kits should be in school on this day. However, it is advisable that kits are in all week to accommodate for changing weather and schedules. 

For your homework, reading must be completed five times per week. Your reading diary must be signed and in school every day. Spellings will be handed out on a Monday and the test will be on a Friday. You will also have to complete alternating maths and literacy homework that will be handed out on a Wednesday to be completed for the following Monday. Times tables will be tested twice per week, usually on a Tuesday and a Friday.

Survival of the Fittest!

The focus for our topic this term will be the Stone Age to Iron Age. We will focus on Pre-Historic Britain and the changes that happened within this period.

As part of our topic, we will develop our skills as historians by exploring how the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age people survived and thrived. We will focus on the weapons and tools they used to hunt and gather, and the houses and settlements they created to decide once and for all who did it best!

Curriculum Information

In our English lessons, we will be reading and completing a range of work linked to the books 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura and 'Big Blue Whale' by Nicola Davies.

This term in maths, we are going to focus on multiplcation and fractions. We will be following the White Rose units.
