Welcome to Year 3 Beech Class Page

What makes a community rock solid?

Project Overview

Throughout this REAL Project, pupils will explore how our individual skills can be combined to make a strong community. With particular focus on themes such as teamwork and creative thinking, pupils will look at the journey from Stone Age through Bronze Age to Iron Age, and how each civilization used their skills to create communities. As a year group we will be reading Stone Age Boy, exploring how the themes of this story relate and give insight into our essential question.

Mini Outcomes
  • Create a timeline to take us from the Stone Age through to Iron Age.
  • Children create Chatterpix information clips to use in final outcome.
  • Create an information text about the prehistoric ages to use in final outcome.

Year 3 will have PE on Tuesdays. We ask pupils to come to school in their school PE kit on a Tuesday and leave their uniform at home.

Reading records (blue book) and home readers must be in school every day – we advise storing these in pupils’ school bags. Please make it a priority to read with your child and sign their reading records. Our new reading challenge means the children will get a stamper if they read 5 times each week. These stampers lead to awards throughout the school year.

Maths, English and spelling homework will be given through Seesaw and will also be marked on the app too so you can see how your child is progressing with their work at home. Work will be set every Monday and is to be completed by Sunday evening.

Pupils are also asked to use our online learning tools at home to help support their learning. The top 3 students in TT Rockstars, Maths Shed and Spelling Shed will be published each week on our class leader boards. Reading Plus will begin as we move through year 3.
