The Stone Age
In the second half of the term, we will be learning about Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. This will be a super opportunity for us to explore the changes that occurred in Prehistoric Britain and how this impacts our lives today. This topic will carry through into our Design & Technology, our writing, and our Art lessons, as well as many other areas of our learning!

We love our science lessons. This term we are learning about forces so we made parachutes to test air resistance. We also tested the effect of magnets using different barriers such as water and paper.
In music we have been learning to play the recorder with Mrs Kendrick. Watch our progress after just six weeks! Fantastic!
We have used our knowledge of addition and multiplication to create a witches' brew with a total power rating of 100!
This year in Year 3 we have introduced times tables books to accompany TT Rockstars. The books is ideal to quickly practise a times table every night. We will have a times table test every Friday morning. Once 3 full marks have been achieved on a focused time table, a new table will be set.
Dylan, Ria and Fatima now know all of their tables from 1 to 12! Who can join them?
