Autumn 2 Learning 2018

We have had another fantastic half term of learning in Year 3. We are trying very hard to become independent learners. We are remembering to think about the 5’s (brain, book, board, buddy and boss) to help us with our learning. We have been practising our dictionary skills and using the working walls in the classroom to help us.

In Literacy we have been writing some super instructions. We have thought about how to catch a woolly mammoth and how to have a stress free, fun filled Christmas.

In Maths we have been practising our times tables daily. We have continued to work on our addition and subtraction skills as well as interpreting information from bar charts.

During RE we have been thinking about Advent and how this is an important time to help us to prepare for Christmas.

Autumn 1 Learning 2018

We have had a fantastic start to Year 3. We have really travelled back in time to ‘The Stone Age’.

In Literacy we have been reading the story ‘Stone Age Boy’. This helped us to understand even more about life in the Stone Age and we have created our own imaginative stories about travelling back in time.

We have been continuing to develop our addition and subtraction skills and have been working hard on new methods to help us to solve problems with this.

Forest Schools sessions have been great fun, we have taken part in a wide range of activities. We have loved using the gardening tools to cut back the bushes. We have been building dens and creating cave paintings using natural materials.

We have really enjoyed out R.E learning. We have been thinking about The Christian Family and how we were welcomed into this during our baptism.

We have also created many wonderful pieces of artwork whilst thinking about The Stone Age including woolly mammoths, Stonehenge and cave paintings using charcoal and pastels.
