Welcome to Autumn 1!
Welcome back! This half term is an important one for the children as they are transitioning from KS1 to KS2 and learning new routines. This half term our topic is Early Man in Europe and our global theme is Identity and Diversity. Our first week is ‘Humanities Week’ where Year 3 will be focusing on Europe and Pre-historic man. We will learn about countries such as Poland, Germany and France and create a leaflet with all our knowledge. We will also learn about how pre-historic man survived by foraging and hunting.
In English we will be reading the text Wolf Brother where we will create freeze frames and have a go at writing the ending to the story.
In Book Study we are looking at a non-fiction text called ‘The Ways of the Wolf’ and identifying features of non-fiction text.
In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and using a part-whole model to partition numbers.
Our Science topic for Autumn 1 is Rocks, Stones and Fossils where we will learn about the different types of rocks and how they were made.
Our PE days are Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure that all children are in the correct P.E. uniform hair is tied up and they are not wearing jewellery. The children should come to school wearing their PE uniform on PE days.
Reading is fundamental especially for children at this age, we ask that the children read at home for a short time every day. Children are able to take home a book every Friday to read throughout the week. This needs to be written in their reading record to prove their reading. The books read throughout the week can be changed on a Friday.
