We started reading the book Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. We also decided to write persuasively to persuade somebody to buy a Neolithic house like those discovered at Skara Brae.
Within maths we have been learning about parallel and perpendicular lines. We are now using that knowledge to describe a range of 2D shapes in more detail.
Alongside our artwork with Mrs. Taylor, we have completed some Stonehenge art work to further practice our pastel skills.
This week Y3 have started learning about angles and shapes. They can now identify acute, obtuse and right angles. We have also produced some fantastic work on mythical creatures and put our descriptive writing skills to the test.
In PE we continued to develop our orienteering skills. Our pen and ink drawings of ornate victorian cutlery are also almost complete. We can't wait to share the finished pieces with you!
This week we completed our fractions unit of work in Maths. The children have worked hard to demonstrate their knowledge in a wide range of contexts. We have also started our pen and ink drawings of Victorian cutlery with Mrs Taylor. This was very tricky as we had to concentrate very hard to copy lots of fine details. We have also enjoyed reaching Chapter 6 of our class book, 'The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe'.
This week in Class 3 we have been learning about and identifying equivalent fractions. We have used fractions walls and fraction strips to help us. We have also gathered information from websites, images, maps and videos in order to learn more about the Stone Age village of Skara Brae. In Art we have been learning about tone using a 4B pencil. The class have produced some fantastic pencil drawings of cutlery and Stonehenge.

This week in Class 3 we have been creating headwear inspired by Ancient Egyptian Gods. Some of the designs included Gods of Weather, Wealth and Death.
We have also written instructions about how to mummify bodies following our visit from an expert on Ancient Egypt last week. Our maths learning has been about adding and subtracting amounts of money. We are also now able to give change and apply our maths skills in real life situations.
In PE Mr. Wilding was very impressed with how the class are beginning to communicate and use space more efficiently whilst playing Matball.
