Autumn 1

Year 3 have had a busy half term learning all about The Stone Age! We had a fantastic Stone Age day with Go Wild Outdoors where we learned all about how to make fires without using matches. We built our own Stone Age houses and also had a go at archery. We made a fabulous Stone Age hand art canvas too! 

The children have loved doing Stone Age cave paintings, silhouette pictures of Stone Henge and making Stone Age pots in art.

In science we have been learning all about rocks, including the three different types of rocks (sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic), how fossils are formed and how soil is made. The children have helped to plan and conduct a range of experiments to test the permeability of different rocks and to explore the different layers in soil.  We did another experiment with sweets and layers of bread to show how fossilisation works.

We have written a character description of a woolly mammoth and retold the story of The Stone Age Boy and also written a  poem about life in a Stone Age settlement.

In maths, we have been learning all about place value and we are currently practising using the column method to add and subtract.
