This week in Mathematics, we have continued to explore fractions. We have compared and ordered sets of fractions and looked at fractions which are equivalent as well. In English, we have written recounts all about our school day. Next half term, we will learn how to add and subtract fractions in Mathematics. During our English lessons, we will be exploring the features of traditional tales.
There is no set piece for the holidays. Enjoy the break and remember to get stuck into the Maths Challenge (details of which can be found below) if you would like to keep busy! The optional Homework Challenge on this term's topic of 'Treasures' is also detailed below.
There are no set spellings for the holidays. The new spelling list will be handed out in class on the first Monday back.
Please continue to enjoy reading over the holidays. Get your reading records signed 5 times or 7 if you are completing the Reading Challenge. We look forward to even more children attempting this next half term.
Stars for week ending - Stars for last week will be added this Friday with Stars for this week.

During Autumn Term, Year 3's topic focus will be the through the ages. To support your child's learning and understanding of the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age, we would like to invite you and your child to take part in a home learning project. Your child can choose one of the following categories which they could do for their project:
Research an aspect of pre-historic Britain: the Stone Age, Bronze Age or Iron Age and use what you find out to create a fact file.
Cave homes – During the Stone Age, people lived in caves. If you had to live in a cave, what would you like it to look like and what would be in it? Be as creative and imaginative as you like! Maybe you could build your own 3D cave to bring in!
Make up your own story, it can be about anything you like and you can tell it through cave art pictures.
Stone Age recipes – Stone Age people could not pop to the shops for food. Everything they ate had to be caught or collected. Write your own recipe for a Stone Age dinner using the sort of ingredients that would be available to them.
You could even design your own Stone, Bronze or Iron Age house.
Prehistoric Tools – Find out and write about tools that were used in each of the Ages (Stone, Bronze and Iron). You can also draw pictures to go with your writing.
Stone Age Jewellery – Stone Age people made bead necklaces, pendants and brooches. Make your own piece of jewellery which you can bring in.
Stonehenge Model – Find out about Stonehenge. Make a model or draw a landscape picture of Stonehenge and write some information to go with it.
These activities can be carried out in a way that suits your child best. For example; you could make a fact book, a plan, a model or a drawing.
Completed projects can be brought into school as soon as they are completed but by the latest Wednesday 13th December.
