Stone Age Adventure! 

This term our topic is 'Stone Age Adventure'. Throughout this topic we will be learning and developing our history skills about life in the Stone Age through to the Iron Age! Take a look at the topic web to see what we are going to be getting up to this term!

Home Learning

Year 3's homework is to practice spellings, times tables and reading, including comprehension. Reading books will be available to change on a Monday and Thursday and should be signed  throughout the week to show they have read at least 4 times, this can be any book they read, not just the book they have chosen from the schools reading scheme. This is stated in the children's reading records:

'Every-day or regular homework is where the children practise a skill or task which requires regular practice; for example, reading, learning key-ring words and/or spellings, and times-tables. This is expected to be done at least 4 times a week. This is to be signed by parents in the home learning book. Class sanctions and rewards are in place to actively encourage this, as the best readers read at home.'

There will also be a variety of different projects based around our topic which the children can choose to get involved in if they wish too. These projects can be handed in once they are completed as some projects may take longer than others to complete.

 The read, write inc spellings are tested every Tuesday morning. Rainbow spellings will now be tested on a Friday afternoon. If they get all of the same colour correct they move up a colour. All the rainbow spellings are in the children's new reading records and I have also sent home the list of rainbow spellings for the children to keep at home.





Last week in English we have been exploring the features of non-chronological reports. This week we will be creating our own non-chronological reports  all about the hidden village Skara Brae.

We will be continuing with spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) work linked to GIMME 3. This includes punctuation, conjunctions and adverbials. Children are encouraged to think about these elements in each piece of writing they do across the curriculum.



We have completed the number and place value, addition and subtraction, money, multiplication/division and fractions unit of work.

We will be focusing on visualising  and construction over the next two weeks exploring 2D and 3D shapes.  

I have provided a copy of key concepts and success criteria for the unit.
