Year 3 - IPC - Footprints from the Past

Welcome to Year 3's Homepage.

In IPC our topic for this term is 'Footprints from the Past'. This unit is based around the theme of dinosaurs and this term we will be learning about the different theories as to why the dinosaurs died out, about the different time periods that they lived, how to make a timeline and about fossil hunters from around the world. 



In English this term we will be focusing on the book 'Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish'. Through this book, we will be focusing on the English skills needed to write letters and the skills needed to write an effective description. In addition to this, we will also be focusing on the use of conjunctions to create cohesion in our writing and on similes. 



In maths we have been using our understanding of estimation to make logical guesses in regards to size and following this through with  the use of practical investigations. On top of this we have been looking at the use of addition and subtraction and how understanding these operations assist use within our maths work. We will continue practising this for this half term. 



Our topic for this term in science in rocks. Here we have been looking at the three different types of rocks, igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary and how they are formed. On top of this we have been looking at classifying rocks into different categories and how we can use these to further understand their properties.
