Welcome to Spring Term in Year 3!
This term, year 3 and 4 will be learning about the Stone Age and answering the question, ‘Could you survive the Stone Age?’
We will start by finding out how the Stone Age people survived, look at how we know about the Stone Age and moving on to researching the legacy of this important era in history. In our Geography lessons we will doing a series of lessons on map work, incorporating our findings from our visit to Cresswell Crags. We will visit the Nottingham Contemporary in January to look at their Hollow Earth exhibition where we will learn about the history of the Nottingham caves.
Our class novel is the fantastic, ‘Stone Age Boy’ and in shared reading we will enjoy the classic tale, ‘Stig of the Dump’
We continue to experience our ‘51 things to do at Southwold’ and will be posting what we get up to on Class Dojo.
As ever we love to see the amazing project homework coming in to class. Please remember that your child must complete 6 Project Homework tasks over the term in addition to their weekly homework. Please ask if your child needs any help or resources.
Please listen to your child read at least 3 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record. Every time your child reads at home, they will get a stamp on their bookmark. 30 stamps complete a bookmark and they will get a prize from Mrs Salmeron.
Your child will be given a spelling test and a maths madness test every Friday morning, so they need to be practicing these throughout the week. Children receive house points and Dojo’s for full marks in spellings and passing their maths madness test. Your child is given homework – spellings and a maths madness sheet –to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned to school by the following Friday, if not before.
PE lessons are every Wednesday for the first half term, so please make sure that your child wears their PE to school on this day. After spring half term PE will be on Tuesday. There will be no swimming in the spring term.
If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please do not hesitate to come and see us.
