Term 6 - Is it better to adapt or stay the same?
Is it better to adapt ro stay the same?
Welcome back to our final term together! This term, our overarching question is 'Is it better to adapt or stay the same?' where Year 3 will be focusing on the incredible adaptions made by animals and humans, as well as the next step in our British History timeline - the fearsome Anglo Saxons! Will Britain adapt to their arrival...?
For Term 6, our class text will be 'The Diary of a Killer Cat' by Anne Fine - a hilarious story that follows Ellie and her killer cat Tuffy! Can she convince him to adapt and change his mouse killing ways? We will also be reading a selection of non-fiction biology books to help us plan and create our own human body fact report!
In maths, children will be continuing with their work on time looking at days, months and years, as well as the differences between a.m and p.m and digital/analogue clocks. We will then be moving onto the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and finishing with an exploration of statistics and how data can be represented in pictogram and bar charts.
