Spring 2

This half term in year 3 our topic is based around history - in particular the Stone Age to Iron age period.

The name of our topic is Tribal Tales...

Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years agoo ... What would you have seen?

Head back to perhistoric times to gather berries and hunt down your dinner. Unearth ancient objects and visit astonishing, mystical monuments that reveal the secrets of an ancient time.

Learn how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years, from the Stone Age to the Roman invasion.

Work as a tribe to build a seasonal monument to celebrate the coming of Spring. Then sit quietly and reflect, waiting for the sunrise.

What tribal tales will you have to tell?



As part of our topic, we have been looking at timelines, Stone Age homes, farming, tools, hunting, cave artwork, the role of an archeologist and Lindow Man. We have been acting as historians, gathering gruesome evidence, reading online archeologist reports and researching artefacts found that help us to imagine what life in the Stone Age was really like. Some children have even built their own Stone Age home model, you will be amazed by the hard work and detail that has gone into these fantastic pieces of artwork.


Take a look at some of the work we have produced so far this half term:


Linking to our topic we have been reading the story of the Stone Age Boy. We have been using this high quality text to inspire our own writing. We have been looking at lots of different genres, from story writing to instructions, diary entries, newspaper reports and roleplay. The children have produced some fantastic stories that I encourage you to look at when you come along for parents evening.



Homework and Spellings

The children will recieve 2 pieces of homework each week, this is usually a maths piece and a literacy piece to consolidate learning. However, sometimes the homework will be linked to the topic work. Homework is given out along with spellings every Friday and is due in for marking the following Wednesday. If homework is not brought in or brought in late it will not be marked and the child may be asked to complete the work during their playtime. However, if there are unusual circumstances in which homework has not been able to be completed please inform a teacher at hometime so we can make a note of it.

Your co-operation and support is invaluable and very much appreciated.

Miss Comer, Mrs Hall and Miss Hayes.
