One Childhood, One Chance

Year 3 Weekly News 21.1.22

Another great week in year 3. Well done Henry in Team Periwinkle for winning a Gold Award! Keep up the good work everybody.



This week, we have been continuing our informational text writing, culminating with us writing a full informational booklet about the Stone Age. We tried to include all the features we learnt over the past two weeks to make our informational texts interesting and engaging. 

Next week we will be learning how to write playscripts using our new text: Stone Age Boy.



We have been focusing on using both mental tactics and column method for addition. We have been learning how to add in our heads when possible and how to use the column method to add larger numbers together.

Next week we will be diving into subtraction. Much like this week, we will be learning how to use mental methods and the column method when subtraction numbers



For Topic, we have looked at the end of the Stone Age, the rise and fall of the Bronze Age and the importance of the Iron Age. We created a timeline to map out when major events from prehistory happened, made presentations to the class about the differences between the Bronze Age in Britain and China and finally painted Iron Age hill forts.

Next week we will be 'digging' into geology, looking at different types of rocks and how soil is formed.
