Welcome to 3A!

Literacy

This half term, our Literacy text will be Stone Age Boy. It will link nicely with our history topic!

We started to build up our Stone Age vocabulary by working on a poem called The Hunter. We wrote our own poems in the same style.

 

Hunting

 

Tools gathering,

Hunters searching,

Moving slowly,

Scanning everywhere,

Animal sighted,

Silently approaching,

Bolas throwing,

Spears ripping,

Blood splattering,

Animal dead,

Men dragging,

Meat cooking,

Men feasting,

Men sleeping.

Our topic for Autumn term is The Savage Stone Age! We will learn about life in prehistoric time, timeline events and key changes throughout this early period of history.

This week, we explored how it is believed that Dinosaurs became extinct! 

RE

Our RE topic for this half term is the Natural World.

Last week, we learnt some new scientific vocabulary, like "light sources". We noticed that when you can stop light from reaching something, it goes dark! We need light to see.
