It has been another busy week in Year 3. We have been extremely lucky as this week, we have taken part in a maths and reading escape room. The maths escape room focused on problem solving, shape, space and measure and place value. The reading escape room allowed children to look for clues in text as well as support their skimming and scanning skills. The children had an amazing time and worked very well in a team with members of Year 4.


In English, we have continued to focus on our text Stone Age boy. This week, we have focused more on S.P.A.G that we could include, such as a range of punctuation, subordinating/coordinating conjunctions, fronted adverbials and planning our stories ready for our inspired write next week.


In maths, we have focused on our place value skills and recognizing numbers to 1000. We are becoming a lot more confident as partitioning 3 and 4 digit numbers into thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. Many of us are also improving on our reasoning and problem solving.


In history, we looked at the different types of homes in the Stone Age period. We then had a go at drawing our own. We discussed and compared the difference in appearance/materials used from the Neolithic, Mesolithic, Paleolithic and Skara Brae periods.

In science, we are focusing on rocks. We looked at different rocks to begin with and determined whether they were natural or human-man. We then looked at the process of how bones turn to fossils. Lots of the children were fascinated with dinosaur fossils are convinced they have seen them down Roker beach!

We are absolutely loving our P.E sessions with Rebecca from Premier League Primary Stars. This week we continued on multi skills games. Please note – if your child received a letter regarding earrings, could you please return it A.S.A.P please.

Welcome to our Year 3 blog.

First of all, I want to say a huge hello and welcome! Most importantly, a massive well done to the children on their first 7 days in Year 3. Mrs Cowley and I have loved getting to know everyone and hearing all about their stories from the school holidays.

Xanax is usually well tolerated as is described at ” xanaxbest.com“. I have never had side effects except for the fact that it is hard to get up in the morning. It helps me very well, because I have to go to bed at night. I don’t wake up at night and sleep fine. I am not nervous

Our topic this term is ‘The Stone Age’, so many of our subjects are linked to that. In English, we are reading the story ‘Stone Age Boy’. The children have been fascinated to hear what life was like over 4000 years ago. We have sequenced the story, used a dictionary to find the definition of some new words and began o retell the story, making sure sentences are punctuated correctly.

In maths, we have recapped some place value and partitioning numbers into hundreds, tens and ones. We have been using concrete equipment such as, base 10 and place value counters to support this. We have also been trying hard to reason and problem solve to deepen our understanding.


In history, we created a mind map showing what we already knew about The Stone Age, then updated it with some knew facts we had found out throughout the lesson. We also created a timeline of events from the Stone Age across the world.

In PSCHE, we have been focusing on friendships and transitions into our new year.

In P.E, we worked with Premier League Primary Stars, taking part in some multi sports activities which focused on working as a team.
