Thrapston

Primary School

Welcome to Year 3!

We have had a great start to the year! The children have all settled in very well and are already getting used to our routines in the Crown building.

We have started our Rocks and Soils topic in Science. The children have already been on a walk to identify things made from rocks around school and consider their uses and this week, they are sorting and classifying different types of rocks. We have even used the Science lab!

In History, we have started to find out all about prehistory. The children have already looked at a timeline and considered the passage of time. We will move onto learning about the different parts of the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age.

In English, we have been using the text 'Voices in the Park' to write setting and character descriptions using effective adjectives, verbs and adverbs.

In Maths, we have been focusing on place value, including identifying the place value of each digit in a three digit number and reading and writing numbers to 1000.

Well done everyone on a great start to the year! Keep up the good work!
