This week, in Maths, we have been learning how to count on and back in 10's starting with 2 digit numbers and then moving onto 3 digit numbers including bridging 10. Later in the week we were learning and revising our 5 times tables.


Next week, we will be learning to count on and back in hundreds. We will then be learning our 3 times tables using bead strings and arrays.


Our English lessons this week have been based on a wonderful book that we read called, 'Small in the City. We will be explored poems including 'White Noise', writing another list poem and then working on descriptive language. Next week we will be bringing everything we have 


Our Science topic this term is plants, we learnt how to set up and carry out an investigation, which involves looking at how plants grow in different conditions and if all plants react the same.. 


We will also had great fun in French, learning how to say hello to each and pass simple greetings expanding our knowledge and understanding the different ways to say hello throughout the day. 


In PSHE, we thought about what makes our school special and what would make a school a nightmare.

Through the Ages Optional Home Learning Project - due in 7th December 2023


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 homework 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 14th December.
