Week beginning 14th September.20
In English this week, we have started to read a new text called the ‘Cave Baby’. We have began to recap features of a narrative including using description to create an image in our reader’s minds. We have used adjectives to describe the setting and the characters and have tried to remember how to punctuate sentences correctly.
In Maths this week, we have began to work on place value, following our year 3 objectives. We have been counting in hundreds and thinking about how to represent hundreds using base ten, place value counters and pictures. In our catch up sessions, we have also delved into simple addition and subtraction to recap our year 2 learning before moving onto these concepts in the coming weeks.
In Topic lessons this week, we have began to think about our new topic of ‘The Stone Age.’ Within our topic sessions, we looked at pictures of artefacts from these times and identified some changes throughout history. We created a stone age timeline to help us gage how long ago it was and how life has changed dramatically from that time.
