It Rocks! Home Learning Project

Year 3 Home Learning- It Rocks!

Next half term Year Three will be starting their new topic- It Rocks! This is a history topic which explores life during the Stone Age to the Iron Age. For home learning, we have set a range of learning activities which your child could complete at home in order to help them with their understanding of this period of time or give them the opportunity to apply what they have learnt. For each task completed, each child will earn some time towards whole class reward time.
