Autumn Term 

Welcome to Year 3's class page. On here you will find any information you need to know about what we are doing each term.

This term our topic is 'The Stone Age'.The class will learn and develop their knowledge of The Stone Age throughout their topic and literacy lessons. The children will discover how to write a story about a girl from Stone Age Britain falling and landing here in Modern Britain, they will write about what she will discover using the 5 senses. The children will also learn about cave painting, spears, clothing, homes, food and much more. We will look closely at the story of Stone Age Boy. We will also be looking into the changes in our local area and why they have happened. If you have any old photographs from Bamford or St Michael's please feel free to bring these in for us to look at and discuss.


English, we are focusing this term on our spelling within our work. When possible can you ask your children to put their spellings into sentences, this will help them to understand the vocab they are developing and how to construct this word into a sentence that can be later written within their work. We will also have a huge focus on editing and improving our work, the children may be given a sentence for their morning activity and with a green pen are to spot the mistakes within my writing - this can also be done at home to help with further development.

Maths: our focus this term is place value, addition/subtraction and multiplication/division. We ask that you ask the children what the digit within a numbre is worth: 24 - what is the 2 worth in this number? (2 tens or 20) etc. 


Please continue to encourage children to learn their timestables. We have been listening to timestable songs through youtube to help us remember. We encourage the children to learn their timestables by saying:
1 x 4 = ?
2 x 4 = ? etc.

Don't move on to develop another times table until your child is confident with both the multiplication and the division facts.
