This week in Year 3...

We have had a very busy and exciting half term. Throughout the weeks we have been learning all about the Stone Age.

We read a variety of stories linked to the Stone Age in our Destination Reader sessions. These included; Stone Age boy, Stig of the Dump and Ug the boy genius of the Stone Age.

This week is our DT week. During the afternoons we have been working hard to design, and make, a pair of soft trousers for Ug. Throughout the week we have tested different materials and explored different textile techniques. Whilst weaving materials, we showed our great Bacton Behaviours with all the Children aiming high and showing Outstanding engagment- they didn't want to stop!

Maths

Throughout the term we will be cementing our understanding of place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and divison.

We will be using different materials to help us with our learning including; base 10 blocks, place value counters and number lines.
