Autumn 2

The Ice Palace- Robert Swindells

Our focus book for this half term is The Ice Palace by Robert Swindells.


In Literacy, we are looking at persuasive writing and in particular, persuasive letters. As well as this, we will be looking at poetry.


In History, will be focusing on The Stone Age and we will be finding out how people lived during this time, what they did and the tools/ weapons they used. 


We will also be doing DT this half term, where we will be designing and making our own healthy fruit lollies. 


Science will be focusing on rocks and soils.


We have a jam-packed half term and are sure Year 3 are looking forward to it!

Stone Age Trip

We had a great trip at Brackenhurst Education Centre. Our Stone Age experience included activities such as den building, willow weaving, orienteering, clay head modelling, making wooden medallions and cave painting. We learnt lots of interesting facts about the Stone Age and it was a great hook into our new topic!
