Year Three Spring Term 2017

Here is what we are focusing on this Spring Term in Year Three 

We have started our Spring term by stepping back in time!!  Initially we looked at a timeline of British History and we then transported ourselves back into the Stone Age!  We used the fiction book, Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura, as a starting point.  We did lots of Literacy based on the book and we used the book to investigate what tools and foods were used.  We have made cave paintings and clay pots.  We worked in the Multi Cultural Kitchen with Mrs Aamir to create a Stone Age dessert, stewed fruit with honey.  We have carried out a Science Investigation to help us decide which materials we could use to make the Stone Age Boy some new clothes.

Next we will be travelling forwards into the Bronze Age.  We will be comparing life to the Stone Age, discovering why it was called the Bronze Age and looking at their houses and family life.

Our next step through time will be to visit the Iron Age and in particular the Celts.  This will lead us to meeting Boudicca and investigating her important role in leading the Celts to attack the Romans.

Finally we shall look at the Romans, their army and structured lifestyle.  We shall be looking for evidence of them in in our Modern Day lives.  We will become Roman soldiers for the day when we visit Murton Park in March.  We will be able to find out about the daily life of a Roman Soldier and carry out some of their daily activities.
