Year 3 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 3!
Our teaching team this year is Mr. Ross (Class Teacher) and Mrs. Diorazio.
I am really looking forward to beginning my first year at Buglawton with a new class, getting to know both the children and their families. On this page, you will find information regarding homework and any key information for families. In addition, I will also share images and activities of our learning journey throughout 2019-20.
On 1st October, Year 3 went to Tatton Park to learn out more about Prehistoric Britain. We handled real Stone Age artefacts and completed workshops involving lots of different elements of Prehistoric Britain, including making a human timeline of the period. There are some images below showing an extremely fun and informative day out.
We start Year 3 with an exciting look back at Prehistoric Britain. Starting at the Stone Age, we will look at the development of civilisations throughout Britain all the way to the Iron Age. This will include the analysis of Stone Age settlements, Neolithic farms and the impact of the discovery of Bronze and Iron on how people in prehistoric times lived their lives.
The topic will include a visit to Tatton Park, where we will engage in workshops related to this exciting period of history.
This term will begin with a topic entitled Animals Including Humans. This topic will look at the nutrition we need to stay alive as well as beginning to look at the skeleton and its functions. After half term, we will begin a topic on Rocks.
Our first block of work is Place Value. This ensures the basics of Year 3 Maths is embedded before we progress to the four operations later in the term.
Over the course of the term, we will be reading a range of texts. However, the main text we will be working from is The Boy with the Bronze Axe by Kathleen Fidler. The link below provides an excellent synopsis of the story.
We will use the text to write a range of text types across the term as well as using our topic for the inspiration for some non-fiction writing.
