This half term...

Class 3 will be learning about Rocks in Science and finding out why and how each rock is different from one another. We will learn how each rock can be grouped depening on its appearance and physical properties. We will compare Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic rocks whilst understanidng how each rocks is formed. 


In writing, we are focusing on writing our own narrative based on 'The book eating boy' where each child has the opportunity to bring their own ideas and imagination into a personal piece of writing. In relation to our Science topic, we will then focus on the Narrative Biography of Mary Anning 'Stone girl Bone girl' and look into Mary's collection of fossils. 


In maths, we are working on place value where we will partition, compare and order 2 and 3 digit numbers. Later in the half term, we will be working on the addition and subtraction of 1, 10 and 100’s within and across boundaries. This will lead onto a more mental method focus.
