Dear Parents/Carers

 

In Maths, Year 3 have started their new unit on Length and Measurement. We used tape measures and rulers to measure different items in the classroom and learnt how to convert between CM and M. We also learnt the difference between length and height and discussed different ways we could measure different items or areas.
In English, we have been really enjoying our new text - Stone Age Boy. We have been learning about difference sentence structures and how short sentences often create tension. E.g.   "The huge mammoth wandered in the distance as we crept closer. Freeze! Nobody move! We didn't want to get spotted!". This week and next week, we will continue our understanding of this historical narrative by planning and writing our own versions of the story.
We had a really exciting History lesson this week, learning about the mysteries of Stone Henge. We looked at a clever website that allowed us to zoom in and take a tour of the real structure! We also learnt about all the different theories that discussed what Stone Henge could have been used for and how it got there! We finished the lesson by making our own Stone Henge constructions from clay and had a team challenge to see whose could look the most accurate, to match the images we had explored. It was very messy but our teachers were so impressed with our efforts!
Thank you very much to all parents who have donated extra stationary and resources for the classrooms, since children's pencil cases have been running low. We really appreciate your ongoing support.
