Year 3 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 3
Tribal Tales - Stone Age
Let’s travel back to prehistoric times! This half term we’re going to find a prehistoric site by studying maps and researching online. Through our research, we’ll learn about the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. What were people’s daily lives like and what epic battles did they fight? We’ll look closely at cave paintings and create our own. As we learn about the Bronze Age, we’ll build monuments and investigate their shadows. Copying the Beaker folk style, we’ll make clay containers. Then, we’ll travel to the Iron Age to learn about hill forts and the properties of iron. During an exploratory dig, we’ll find all sorts of objects and creatures. What will we uncover?
In Science, we’ll investigate rocks and soils. This will help us to understand how people in the Stone Age lived.
Our text in Literacy, is the beautiful book, Winter’s Child. At the end of our unit the children will write their own fantasy story set in winter. We’ll be focussing on conjunctions, adverbs, creating characters, settings, plot and using inverted commas to punctuate direct speech
Our Literacy this term will be based on two books
