Welcome to Year 3!

What a wonderful start to Year 3 it has been!
So far during our ‘Flintstones’ topic, we have been learning all about life during the Stone Age and created our own cave paintings and made Stone Age necklaces out of clay. We enjoyed a trip to Creswell Crags where we learnt about being a hunter gatherer and got to explore inside real caves and create Stone Age music.
In English, we have written recounts and created our own portal stories inspired by our class text ‘The Stone Age Boy’.
In Maths, we have been deepening our understanding of place value and learning different methods to add and subtract numbers mentally. We are beginning to look at formal written methods to add and subtract which we will continue next half term.
In Science, we have been learning all about the human body and skeletons. We know that the functions of our skeleton are to protect, for movement and for support. We will be looking at the skeletons of other animals next half term and moving on to look at healthy diets and the impact of food on our bodies.
An enjoyable topic so far with many more exciting things to look forward to after the half term break.
