Year 3 – Silver Birch

This term’s highlight for Year 3 has been our wonderful visit to Butser Ancient Farm where our Topic of the Stone Age and Iron Age came to life. We were able to experience what it was like to live in an Iron Age house and we sat round an open fire. We made copper jewellery, built fences using the ancient technique of wattling and made bookmarks from strands of thread (cordage). Our guide was impressed with our knowledge of the period and we learnt so much about life in prehistoric times.

We have also been creating our own Just So Stories and leaning about measurement in maths. We are now preparing for Christmas.

This half term in Silver Birch class we have been learning about life in the Stone Age. We made our own spears, flint axes and cave paintings. Also, in English we have been reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes while in PE we have practised our Netball skills. My favourite lessons have been French and Maths where we have been partitioning numbers.
