Welcome to 3CH's Class Page.
Welcome to Year 3 and Key Stage Two!
Wow! How are we into our third week of the Autumn two term? Time is really flying! The children in Y3 have been working ever so hard over the past couple of weeks.
Over the past half term we have been focussing on 'The Stone Age'. Children have developed their knowledge of how Stone Age people lived, what Stone Age people ate and also what an average day in the Stone Age was actually like. We were privileged to have the 'Time Zone' company come in and host a Stone Age themed day which the children thoroughly enjoyed! Thank you for supporting with contributions towards that day and also with amazing costumes!
In Maths over the past few weeks we have been focussing on these areas;
- Number and place value
- Addition and subtraction
- 3D shapes and properties
Our new text in English is Stig of the Dump by Clive King which many of you may remember from your own childhood. It is a great link to the Stone Age and we are enjoying reading the story together.
Our visit to the theatre today to see The Wind in the Willows was a great experience and the children loved seeing how the story came to life on the stage.
See you at the Christmas Fair!
We are starting the year with Forest School on a Monday afternoon so please remember to send in Forest School kit!
Maths and English homework will be set alternately on a Wednesday to be handed in on the Monday.
Spellings will go home on a Friday and then tested the following Friday.
P.E day is on Thursday for 3CH. Please send children with kit etc. appropriate to the season. If your child wears earrings, they may prefer to leave them at home on PE days. Otherwise they do need to be able to remove them and replace them independently in school.
Our class timetable is also available for you to view but please note this is subject to change.
Do have a look at our Stone Age topic flyer at the bottom of the page to see
what other exciting things we have planned for the term!
This week, as part of our science work on rocks we have made our own fossils by mixing salt dough and impressing shells into it!
