For our first Topic this half term the year 3 students will be focussing on 'The Stone Age'. The children will collaborate together about the interesting things they may already know and want to learn about this fantastic topic. The children will investigate the people from the Stone Age and the ways in which they, lived, ate, and survived in the wild. Following this exciting topic the children will then dive into the next topic of studying all the different types of stones and rocks around us. A portion of this topic will be completed on the computer, allowing the children to develop their ICT skills.
Reading Books, Spellings and Homework
Your child will be given:
- a reading record
- a reading book
- a learning journal
The reading record shows how much reading your child is doing at home.
We expect all children to read for 10 minutes - 3 times a week. You need to write the date, the name of the
book and what pages they have read with a short comment on how they have done in their reading
record and this needs to be handed in once a week. Books will be changed, ready to be sent out every
Each Friday your child will choose a challenge from their #30things grid and will record this in their
journal through pictures, photos etc. These need to be handed back into school the following
Spellings will be given out every Friday and the children have a week to learn them before the test the
following Thursday. Additionally, your child will be given Maths homework in the form of a ‘Speedy
Spider’ on a Friday.
These activities are very important in helping your child improve at school and we hope you will support
us by helping your child at home.
