We are now exploring information texts in the context of planning a holiday! The children will learn the features of an information text and will complete their own text regarding going on a beach holiday.
 
Maths
We are currently investigating place value to ensure that the children understand what each digit is worth. The children should be able to understand the value in 3 digit numbers and be able to order numbers explaining why they have decided numbers are bigger than others.
Topic
This week we have started to investigate how someone living in the Stone Age would survive. If you woke up in the Stone Age what would you do first? Make fire? Find shelter? The children had to justify what would keep them alive!
 
We have always looked at the development of weapons and have begun to write and advert for a bow and arrow!
Music
Year 3 are now learning the Ukulele on a Tuesday afternoon. An expert from the Music Service  will come in every week to deliver the session to our budding musicians!
