Writing in Year 3
English – Autumn term
This half term, Year 3 will be using different texts related to their history topic ‘Early Civilisations’.
These are the texts used in Year 3 in 2023-2024:
Year 3 completed some maths investigations. They had to use the numbers 1-9 and any of the 4 operations to reach the number 100. They used their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to get as close as they could to 100.
They also represented division problems in different ways using resources in the classroom.
Curriculum in Year 3
In Science, the topic for Autumn 1 was Rocks and Soils. The children learnt about different types of rocks and grouped them based on their appearance and properties. When learning about the structure and layers of the Earth, the children made ‘dirt pudding’ to represent the different layers. Finally, the children learnt about the different types of fossils and made their own ‘mould fossil.
When learning about Early Civilisations, Year 3 took part in a Stone Age-Iron Age workshop with artist Jeffrey Andrews. They looked at artefacts, completed an archaeological dig, created their own Stone Age art and made replica Iron Age jewellery.
In order to learn more about the lifestyle of a hunter gatherer, Year 3 walked to Coxley Woods and looked at what resources could have been used as tools and weapons. The children also made their own shelters using what they could find in woods.
When learning about Early Civilisations, the children created their experimented with natural materials to create art and created their own cave art.
