Term 2 Week Beginning 21st November 

 

This week in Northamptonshire we have been looking further at our text 'Ug, Boy Genius of the Stone Age'   and have been building on our knowledge of coordinating and subordinating conjunctions. The children have been learning how to use conjunctions to join two sentences of a similar theme and to join clauses. The children are now working on using their knowledge of conjunctions to compare Ug's life in the Stone Age to our lives in the present day. 

 

In Maths, we have been looking at column addition and subtraction with two 3-digit numbers, where there is renaming, or an exchange involved. 

 

In History, we have begun to develop our knowledge of the Bronze Age and have explored how the discovery of bronze changed the way people lived, farmed, fought, traded and dressed. The children made fantastic comparisons to these areas of life in the Stone Age and were astounded by the way life had progressed between these two periods of time. 

 

In Geography, the children have been learning all about longitude and latitude and how these can be used to describe the location of any place on Earth. They created diagrams of the Earth to show their understanding of the 5 lines of latitude. They then used maps and longitude and latitude to identify the location of several different cities and places around the world. For example, Canberra, Australia and Buenos Aires in Argentina. 

 

In Computing, the children have been enhancing their knowledge of how to stay safe online and have been building on their understanding of things we should and shouldn't share on the internet. They have also been thinking about and identifying the trusted adults we have in our lives who can help us with being safe online. 

 

We are also working hard on our nativity - please can children who have lines, ensure they practise these as much as possible so that they know them without needing their script :)

Reading

 

Children should bring their Accelerated Reader Reading Book to and from school and home each day. Pupils are asked to change their book when it is finished using the guidance and support provided by the teaching team within the class. 

 

Children in Year 3 should be reading for at least 20 minutes a day. 

Parents please log your child's reading on the BOOM Reader Parent Portal or by using the BOOM reader parent app on your tablet/ mobile.
