Autumn 2 –
We have been extremely busy this half term in year 3. We have continued to learn about the Stone Age and the children have enjoyed learning about the different periods of the Stone Age and they delivered a super performance in our class assembly!
The children have enjoyed learning about the different types of rocks and how fossils are formed in our Science lessons and they have even made their own fossils!
We have been learning all about Christmas traditions and we have investigated what the true meaning of Christmas is for Christians and compared this to what Christmas means to us.
Autumn 1 –
The Year 3 children have settled back into school very well so far. We have started off the Autumn term with our new topic of ‘The Stone Age’.
To get the children engaged, we had a Stone Age Day where children and staff dressed up and took part in exciting activities. We got to examine real-life artefacts of human and animal bones, skulls and fur. We then hunted like the hunter gatherers, trying to catch enough mammoths, hares and deer to keep us fed for the Winter. We found out about how Stone Age men changed over time, where they lived and how they lived.
It was a very engaging day that was enjoyed by everyone, and all the children were beautifully behaved!
