Welcome to Year Three!
Hello and welcome to our Year 3 area. Miss Haley is the class teacher and we are supported by Mrs Oldham and Miss Wood. We are very much looking forward to this half term as we have so many exciting topics and things to learn.
This half term we will be having an ECO week in school therefore our first English text relates to this theme. We will be reading 'The promise' by Nicola Davies. This is a lovely picture book which explores the story of a young thief who tries to snatch an old woman’s bag. But she finds she can’t have it without promising something in return – to “plant them all”. When it turns out the bag is full of acorns, the young thief embarks on a journey that changes her own life and the lives of others for generations to come. The children will be involved in exploring their own relationships with nature and we will be using the text as a stimulus for our own creative writing.
Our second text this half term will be 'The Stone Age boy' by Satoshi Kitamura, we will be using this text to further our learning of ancient Britons as well as inspiring our own creative writing.
In Science we will be learning all about different kinds of rocks and soils, exploring their different qualities and discovering how they are formed.
Our History topic will be focussed on the ancient Britons we will be finding out 'Were the Ancient Britons as smart as we are?' We will be finding out about the first inhabitants in Great Britain and discovering how they lived.
What an exciting half term we have ahead of us!
As healthy school and one that loves books, we ask that parents choose a book for their child's class to present on their birthday which will have a special named book plate inside. Books can be chosen from our Amazon wishlist, which is also linked to our easy fundraising page, so double win for school! https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/2O98NO89POQIM?ref_=wl_share
