In topic this half term we will be learning all about The Vikings! In History, we will be looking at The Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons and exploring where they came from, the way they lived and their invasions. In Science, we will be classifying and describing rocks based on their appearance, whilst also looking at how they are formed and how they change over time. In DT, Year 3 will be investigating mechanisms and making a product using levers and linkages.
Our Literacy units this half term are Recounts and Quest Stories. We will be making close cross-curricular links to The Vikings throughout the Literacy work. Within their writing, we will be focusing on the use of punctuation including capital letters, full stops, question marks and apostrophes whilst learning about correct grammar and spellings.
This half term, we will be learning about Place Value. This will include representing numbers to 1000, finding 10 or 100 more or less than a number, using a number line to 1000 and comparing and ordering numbers. We will also be focusing on counting from 0 in 4s, 8s, 50s and 100s.
