Welcome back to an exciting new year and new term, we are very much looking forward to working alongside you over the course of the year. We hope that you and the children had a pleasant Christmas and that you are refreshed and ready for Year 3. Bones and Stones! We are going to be looking at Dinosaurs. We have begun this topic by getting the children to make dinosaur models from clay, drawing a picture of a dinosaur and discussing what we know about dinosaurs already.. We are reading a really engaging story by Dick King-Smith- “Dinosaur Trouble”. We look forward to having another successful term working alongside you.
Bones and Stones
We started off our learning journey by taking part in "Dinosaur Day". The children made clay models of dinosaurs, drew dinosaurs using art techniques and finally found interesting facts and also discussed what they would like to know about Dinosaurs.
We came into school and discovered a mysterious letter from a Pterodactyl named Nosy. We will be delving deeper into the story to find out more about Nosy's adventures.
In Reciprocal reading , we are looking at "Meerkat Mail" by Emily Gravett. A story about a curious Meerkat who travels around the world and discovers new places.
Furthermore, in Science, the children are exploring rocks and their properties.
In History, we will be researching the three periods of the Mesozoic era which is divided into the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods.
