Spring One Update
Our topic this half-term has been ‘Digging up the Past’ where we have focused on the Stone Age. In History we have explored the Stone Age and how the hunter-gatherers lived during this time. Year 3 particularly enjoyed finding out about how large Woolly Mammoths were by measuring out the size of them in our classrooms. We have also made links to our topic through our English lessons where we have focused on the ‘Stone Age Boy’ story to make predictions, infer character feelings and write our own Stone Age adventure story.
This half-term the children in Year 3 particularly enjoyed learning about the Stone Age during our Art Day where, they made cave paintings based on the evidence that they were used within the Stone Age as a form of communication. Children used sand, sticks, stones and paint to create their panting and write their message. Year 3 have also enjoyed their French topic of ‘Les Instruments’ where they have been learning to read, write and speak different musical instruments and have even had some fun using drama to perform different instruments.
Our Year 3 WOW moments this half-term included; sharing our Stone Age adventure stories across both classes and providing feedback to each other. As well as this, Year 3 enjoyed working together for a science lesson where they tested out the properties of different soils before, classifying the soils using a classification key.
