Miss Bliss, Mrs Rai and Mrs Turner welcome you to year 3!
Welcome back to the spring term!
Stig of the dump
This term we are enjoying reading Clive Kings ‘Stig of the dump’. During our writing so far we have been learning all about adventure stories. We have even written our own Stone Age adventure stories and are very proud of our writing!
This terms topic
The focus in our creative curriculum topic is the Stone Age. To begin our topic we took a trip into our forest school area for the afternoon! We took part in lots of activities including: hunting and gathering, creating Stone Age paint from charcoal, drawing cave pictures, creating teeth necklaces and pots, spear making, as well as lots of role-play.
This term one of our maths units is time! We will be looking at telling and writing the time from an analogue clock, including Roman numerals and 12-hour and 24-hour digital clocks. Alongside reading and times table practise, it would be great if your child could be practising this skill at home.
