Class Teacher – Miss Becky Sambrook

Teaching Assistant – Miss Abi Welsh and Miss Clare Wright

Welcome to our class and a new school year. I would just like to take this opportunity to let you know how well the children have settled in to their new class after the summer holidays! We have already completed some fantastic learning and it is lovely to see the children so eager to achieve! If you didn’t know already, Year 3 have PE on a Monday and Thursday. PE kit is to be worn to school on these days and should consist of tracksuit bottoms or shorts (dark colour), a white t-shirt and their school jumper (no hoodies allowed). We will be using our class pages to update you on what the children have been learning in school so keep checking back regularly.

Regards

Miss Sambrook

Term 1

To kick off our Stone Age to Iron Age Curious Curriculum, We decided to have a WOW afternoon! We were lucky enough to watch The Flintstones and Miss Sambrook posed the question is the film/tv series factually correct? One of the main things we found out was that dinosaurs weren’t around during the Stone Age.

This term and next, we will be travelling back millions of years to learn all about the Stone Age to the Iron Age! We will be learning about how the people of the Stone Age/Iron Age lived, how they kept themselves alive, how they lived and how they told stories to each others. We will also be learning about rocks and soils. We will be finding out about the different types of rocks there are and what makes them different, how soil is created and why it is important. We will also look at what fossils are, how they are formed and why they are important. Our challenge this term will be to create our own igneous rock that we can eat! As well as this, we will be using a picture book “The Stone Age Boy” to inspire our writing.
