Year 3

Year 3 Creation week

Topic

Our topic this term has been ‘The United Kingdom’. As part of this we are studying the Stone Age. We are focusing on our historical enquiry skills and using a range of sources to find out information.

We are also preparing to use maps and atlases to find out more about where we live.  In RE we have been learning about the Creation and our class story book has been ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl.

Maths

Year 4 has been working on number; sequencing and counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  They have also been working on rounding and fractions. The children have also found their work on 3D shapes interesting and completed some special spellings to support their study.

English

Year 4 have been reading and studying text from Roald Dahl’s book The Twits. Using the delightful illustrations, children have had many opportunities to practice simple, compound and complex sentences with powerful verbs. They have also been creating their own writing based around The Gunpowder Plot and God’s Creation of the Earth.

Science

In Science the children have been learning about Animals Including Humans - Keeping Healthy. They have develop specialised knowledge, skills and understanding in nutrition, muscles, bones and joints and even conduct their own research in order to answer science questions. We are now moving on to Light and shadows. During this block we are creating our own shadow puppet play using your expert knowledge and skills on light and shadows. We are making theatre and puppets for the show in groups and conduct your own investigations on shadows, light and reflections.

In year three we took some pictures of God's creation.  We took some of trees, flowers and animals.

In English we wrote about something we did in the summer holidays.  We have started to read The Twits. 

In Maths we have been learning our timestables.  We have been feeling brilliant.
