Our Creative Curriculum

Autumn Term – Stepping into the Stone Age

Spring Term – Ancient Egyptians

Summer Term – Extreme Earth

Although we encourage and teach reading at school, it is important that this is carried on at home to help improve your child’s knowledge and understanding.

Could parents please encourage reading daily and listen to them read at least couple of pages of their book each night.

Please sign the yellow reading diaries so that they can be rewarded for their extra effort!

What a fantastic and FUN first term we have had in Year Three.

In our Topic lessons we went back in time to create our own cave paintings and then we furthered our knowledge of the Stone Age by visiting Outback 2 Basics. We were met by Dan and Ollie who took us on a real Stone Age experience. Dylan said he “had never seen so many trees.” Here the children dressed up as the different ages within the Stone Age and then made their own shelters using only natural materials.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During our Science Rocks and Soils topic we have categorised rocks and soils and even grown our own worms in our classroom compost. We were a little scared but we couldn’t believe Miss Frodsham was hiding them in our cupboard. After two weeks of us feeding the worms our left over break we set them free in our School garden to carry on doing their hard work.

In English we have written our own version of the Stone Age Boy and looked at poetry and written our own shape poetry about different types of weather. We looked at Calligram poetry and Nathnael especially LOVED writing in shapes.

In Maths we have started to look at formal written methods for adding and subtracting. We used apparatus to really show us the process of exchanging which we call “knocking next door.”

 

Alongside Year 4 and 5 we took part in our School’s nativity. We loved acting and singing and telling the story and the celebration of Jesus’ birth. We made our teachers and families very proud.

Our next Science topic is Animals including Humans. We will be working scientifically and in groups have our own clients so we can analyse their lifestyles and encourage improvements to their health.

 

Meet Scruffy Ted

In Year Three we have a class teddy that watches the children all week and then decides which kind friend he would like to spend the weekend with. However, Scruffy Ted can only fall asleep if he has had a story read to him before bed. We will love to see and read all about his adventures with the children.

This weekend Scruffy Ted has gone home with…

Augusinta!
