Learning Letters

Year 3's Learning Letter for Autumn 1 has now been sent home. This term in History, the children will be learning all about Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. The children have been enjoying learning about Hunter-gatherers, the tools they used and the daily activities that they would do, cave art, the first farms and a whole host of other things! Home Learning challenges have already started coming in to class and are sitting proudly on our Stone Age display table. Please keep them coming in!

Our Science topic this term is Healthy eating and nutrition. We will be learning about how humans need to eat well and have a balanced diet to keep themselves fit and healthy. We will be looking specifically at the 'Eatwell Plate' and all the parts that make it.

In Literacy the children have been reading the fabulous 'Tin Forest' by Helen Ward. This fabulous traditional tale follows an old man who lives near nowhere and close to forgotten, surrounded by all the rubbish that people have thrown away, yet he dreams of living in a tropical forest. The children will be using the grammar skills of prepositions and inverted commas to write their own versions of this wonderful tale.

Also this term, the children will be writing their own biographies. Keep checking this page to see examples of their work!
