Hare Moonwood Class
Our Year 3 children are taught in Hare Moonwood Class
Moonwood was a talking hare who lived in the sixth century, during the Age of Conquest. He lived under the Great Waterfall in the west of Narnia. His hearing was so sensitive, that he could hear a whispered conversation in Cair Paravel above the roar of the waterfall. You can read about Moonwood in the book, 'The Last Battle'.
What we do:
The transition from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 is an important step in children’s primary education. They learn to be much more independent and take responsibility for organising themselves and their belongings.
In Maths we concentrate on learning the times tables and the related division facts as well as covering the rest of the maths curriculum.
In Literacy the emphasis is on learning to recognise the features of different genres of writing and being able to use these in our own writing.
Topic work is fun, interesting and varied. This term our topic is Prehistoric Britain.
The story of life in Britain goes back to a time before people knew how to read and write, in an era known as prehistory. Although Britain's earliest inhabitants didn't write anythng down, they did leave other clues behind. Traces of their houses, their tools and ornaments, and sometimes even their bodies, have survived down the ages. They help to build up a picture of how people lived in Britain from around 700,000 years ago.
