Yr 3 Mr Baxter
Welcome to Mr Baxter’s Year 3 class page. Mrs Boult and Mrs Corbett support across the Year 3 and 4 classes.
This half term, we have been looking at a historical topic named ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’. We have linked our literacy in with this and have rewritten the flashback section of the story Stone Age Boy. We are now looking at non-chronological reports so that we can write some information about the Stone Age. In topic, we ordered key events of the stone age, we became estate agents to try and sell a Neolithic house, investigated rocks and soils and made fossils. We researched how fossils were formed too. We will be looking at some geography over the next few sessions, including some map reading and locating of Stone Age and Iron Age settlements. We will also be looking at some RE and retelling the creation story and thinking about what they Christians learnt from this.

Now that the children are in Year 3, they no longer receive a free snack, so please provide your child with a healthy snack that they can have at break time.
Your child should be taking their AR book home to read so they can be ready to quiz, can you make sure that they are bringing their AR book back every day. Our library slot is on a Friday afternoon which gives your child a chance to quiz on their books and change their books. They should be reading a range of fiction and non-fiction books.
Please can you make sure that your child is practicing their spelling (which are in the back on their Home Discovery Journal).
