The Stone Age girl

As I stumbled up I realised my legs felt weird.The woods were silent and gloomŷ.I heared trotting through the trees.Then,I saw a mysterious looking boy.The boy was from the future.He had something around his eyes he had weird things on his arms then he had strange things on his feet.The boy had a colossal dog and I was frightened.I was bit!I through the dogs toy at the tv! I fell down I woke up I ended back home was it a dream maybe.maybe not I looked down I had a peace of glass in my hand…

The Stone Age girl by Isabelle

I was plodding in the woods and I fell down.When I woke up I was on the wet grass.As I got up of the ground I saw someone from the future.The boy was hobbling towards me.His huge piercing eyes made me feel frightend.There was something on his eyes.I was taken to a big zoo with lots of animals in it and I got frightend by a huge lion and tiger.Suddenly the tiger escaped the huge cage and everyone was trying to leave the zoo.I fell down a hole at the zoo.

The Stone Age girl

As I stumbled of the ground I thought my legs  felt like wobbly jelly.As tumbled out of the dark cave I realised I came into the super gloomy dark woods.All I could hear was bangs of loud footsteps and loud echos of people shouting.So I took 11 steps towards the footsteps I could hear.When I woke up I was in one of those scary machines.

The Stone Age girl

I was plodding in my campsite and fell down a hole I woke up in the middle of the park and met a boy from the future,the boy had something in his hand.He gave me something I put in my pocket we he took me to a place with a sign saying KFC and ordered a meal,went in to a strange looking house a fire started!we sprinted to the basement the door was locked a strange looking man put me into a yellow bed. I woke up and got out and fell down I woke up on the ground the air felt colder,I dashed all day but nether found him. I told my family and they didn’t believe me I still wonder if it was real I looked down and saw my  burnt  finger with a glowing item in my pocket.

The Stone Age girl

Once there was a girl named Om, she was just strolling in the park suddenly stumbled and ended up in the future.She saw something across the road it was a strange looking boy. He took me to his house made of red stone. She turned on a switch and made a fire!She called the fire men to tell them there is a fire.

Spring

Hello everyone and welcome back to another exciting term in Year 3 at Corrie!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

We have got a busy but exciting term ahead of us with lots of fantastic events like the careers and aspirations week that we are really looking forward to.

If there are any parents that would like to come into school and explain to the children what they do for a job, please let us know and we would be delighted to see you.

Spring 

Maths:

In maths we will be start by looking at Place value. We will move onto Times tables, angles and 2D shapes. The children will develop a range of strategies to help them add and subtract and look at finding measurements. We will continue to develop our problem and reasoning skills throughout each unit of work.

 

English:

We will start the half term by focusing on narrative writing inspired by The Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley Climo. A traditional tale and alternative version to Cinderella. We will start by comparing different versions of a traditional story and and identify how verbs can create an action. We will then write our own narratives and edit our story.

 

Topic: Ancient Egypt

 Our topic this term is going to be Ancient Egypt and we are going to find out all about this fascinating period of history. We will be doing lots of activities in our Kagan books and might even be able to go on a fantastic trip to find out about some of the amazing things about the Ancient Egyptians.

 

Science: Rocks and Soils

In this unit children will recognise that below the surface of Earth is rock which they may not be able to see. They will understand that over time rocks have been broken down to form smaller rocks, pebbles, stones and eventually soils. They will recognise that there are different rocks and different soils which have different properties and appearances. Children will identify, name and describe different rocks. They will compare and group different rocks and soils based on appearance and properties, e.g. hardness, and they will examine the soil in their local area. They will consider the impact of worms in making soils. Children will also describe in simple terms how fossils are formed when living things have been trapped in rock.

 

PHSE: JIGSAW Dreams and goals 

During this half term, children will look at understanding what their dreams and goals are and look at how to achieve their aspirations.

 

RE: What do different people believe about God?

In RE the children will be looking at what different people believe about God through for example stories, buildings and art.

 

PE: Games and Gymnastics

In PE the children will begin to create their own sequences using the shapes and movements they have been learning in gymnastics. They will have Sports Development working with them in their lessons every other week where they will be focusing on dance and games.

 

Music: BRASS

During our music lessons the children will have the opportunity to learn how to play a brass instrument with Tameside music service. Music lessons are every Wednesday. If your child would like to take their brass instrument home to practice, a deposit can be paid to the office allowing them to take it home.

 

ICT:

In ICT we will be learning about E safety including how to keep safe online, Blogging such as how to leave and comment on blogs on our school webpage and Navigating which will include finding the school website and logging into school apps.

 

MFL: French

We will be developing our language skills this half term by looking at colours and the french alphabet. We will continue to learn about France and its culture by looking at different traditions and food. 

 

HOME LEARNING LINKS / IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER 

We are also going to continue our different approach to homework in year 3 which has proven very successful in the past. We provide the children with a menu of choices for homework activities that they can carry out during the term. They still only need to complete one piece per week. They will also receive spelling shed and active learn homework every week online. Your child should have their log is stuck in their homework book. If you do not have access to the internet at home, a worksheet version of the homework will be available.

If you would like to email us your child’s homework please email to admin@corrie.tameside.schFAO Miss Wood / Mrs Faulkner or Mrs Akhtar.

Home Reading: Reading a school book is part of your homework. Reading books are changed or checked every Wednesday and will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Your child’s reading diary must be signed before a new book is given and all activities completed (if applicable)

REMEMBER: all homework needs to be completed each week and handed in by each Wednesday to achieve GREEN for Homework in your Assertive Mentoring. If you hand it in on Thursday you will achieve YELLOW and after that you will achieve RED for that week. Homework is a vital part of your child’s learning and school provides homework club every night after school as well as homework support during Wednesday and Thursday lunchtimes.
