Year 3 Learning


Theme 2 - Stone Age to Iron Age

Our theme for this half term is 'Stone Age to Iron Age. We will be learning about  different aspects of of life, such as:  farming, clothes, houses, hunting and gathering as well the invention of fire. Also, we will be comparing neanderthals and homosapiens. In relation to the geographical side, we are looking at the settlements and locating the ones still remaining.

This will be taught in weekly theme lessons, but will also be taught through other curriculum subjects (Art, English, Computing, Spelling) to further develop and reinforce learning. 

English - In English we have been focusing on creating suspense through an adventure story. Next, we will be moving onto writing a persuasive letter with a focus on emotive language to a non-chronological report on a Theme aspect.

Computing - In Computing we have been focusing on developing their confidence using the Chrome Books and basic computer skills.

D.T-In D.T we are going to have a very exciting day where we will design , build and evaluate a creation of a stand for stone age cooking. They will be developing their wood-work skills combing with measuring.

Spelling - We also reinforce our theme learning through spelling - the class have a 'theme spelling bank' which is a collection of nine words related to our current themes displayed in the classroom for all children to see. There is an expectation that the children should be using the theme word bank to spell these words correctly, and the children will also have time to practice these words in spelling lessons.
