Welcome to Year 3 Beavers 2023-24
Things to look forward to this half term.
This half term we are looking at ‘The Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura. We are focusing on diary writing and creating their own story. We will learn the features of a diary, recording, retrieving information from the text and writing from a different viewpoint. We will be using expanded noun phrases and subordinating clauses in our description writing We will be using drama and role play to help with our understanding of how each of the crayons were feeling.
This half term we are learning about the Stone Age and this will culminate with a visit to Murton Park on 11.12.23.
In our Stone Age / Bronze Age village children spend the day learning about the lives of our distant ancestors. After an introductory talk setting the scene and introducing the key concepts of the prehistoric era, the children will spend the day living and working on our prehistoric village. They will get involved in making early types of clay pottery and find out which crops and how grain was ground to make flour. They will try their hand at prehistoric art, handle objects and artefacts and learn the essential skills of hunting.
We are learning about Advent . We will:
explore Advent as a time of preparation and hope.
hear stories from the Bible about the preparation for Jesus’ birth, especially the Annunciation to Mary.
discover customs and rituals associated with Advent e.g. Advent Calendar, purple altar cloth, etc.
think about people in need and preparing to help them at Christmas
We will make Christingles and celebrate with our Christingle service at St John’s Church, Ingrow on Thursday 14.12.23 and donate our food collection.
