Half Term Information Autumn 2 2023

Last term, in Year 3, we were studying deserts. We were thinking about the plants, animals and people that make this landscape their home. It was really interesting to discover that deserts are not only the dry, hot places we first thought of but also ice deserts or grass deserts! Our focus on meerkats for the book Meerkat Mail was really enjoyable, as was brought to life by a visit from a real life meerkat and other desert animals. The children wrote their own versions of the story as well as writing non-chronological reports on meerkats and other desert animals. In other areas of the curriculum, we enjoyed exploring skeletons of humans and other animals, learning about the importance of Christmas for Christians and sending emails in computing. During maths, we started our multiplication and division units, first focussing on 2, 5 and 10 times tables before moving on to 3s, 4s and 8s.
