Well what a fantastic first half-term we have had in Year 3!
We have all thoroughly enjoyed our 'Buildings' topic so far, and have loved discovering more about early life during the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages.
So far we have become archaeologists; taking part in our own archaeological digs on the school field. We found many interesting artefacts, which have really made us think about how the land may have been used in the past.
Across the half term we have written historical reports about the Stone Age and Bronze Age, and have written our own 'Iron Age' stories based on the book 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura.
In Maths we have focused on a new way of deepening and broadening our mathematical understanding, by bringing together the use of equipment, pictures and numbers to reason and explain when solving problems involving place value, mental addition and subtraction.
As part of our on-going Design and Technology architectural project, we have made Iron Age roundhouses using card. We then made these look more authentic by using water colours and natural materials to create a more accurate aesthetic.
Our artwork transported us back to the Stone Age where we researched and created our own Stone Age paintings using oil pastels and charcoal.
