Welcome to Deer Class, here we will give you an insight into life in our Year 3 classroom, including all the things we have been learning about and enjoying. Please find below links to support learning, as well as useful class information.
Our topic for the next two terms is ‘The Stone Age to the Iron Age.’ We have got over 2 million years of History to explore, travelling back to the Prehistoric Age. We will develop our knowledge of chronology, constructing timelines, and identifying when and why these ‘Ages’ ended. In English, we will be reading Stone Age Boy, a story about a boy who falls down a hole and ends up in the Stone Age. I wonder what he will learn about these people, who lived so long ago?
In our Wider Learning lessons, we will be becoming History Detectives. We will ask questions, make predictions and learn how to analyse sources in order to deepen our understanding of the Stone Age, as well as investigate some historical mysteries. We will also be exploring cave paintings while developing our use of charcoal and pastels.
Home Learning is now set on DB Primary. Your child has a copy of their personal login in their Contact Book. Home Learning will be set at different times throughout the term, and will usually follow on from the learning in class. However, I encourage that your child takes some time to explore the DB Primary resources, there is a wide range of Maths and English games, as well a secure messaging facility.

As a school, we also have access to Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars (logins are again in Contact Books). Both of these websites allow your child to practise the valuable skills of spelling and times tables in a fun way. We really want to be top of the school leader board!
Please continue to support your child with reading, by listening to them read regularly, supporting their word reading as well as discussing the story to improve comprehension.
P.E – Friday please ensure your child has their P.E kit in school so they are able to fully participate in our lesson. Children must be able to remove their own earrings or they must have micropore tape provided from home.
