Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


This term our main theme is The Beginnings.


In English, we will be working on our grammar through reading some exciting new genres that will inspire our writing, such as The Paper Bag Princess and Stone Girl Bone Girl.  We will also be recapping Year 2 spellings and starting to learn our Years 3 spellings.


In Maths, we will be focusing on Place Value, Addition and Subtraction.  We will be developing mental strategies to add and subtract.  We will look at these in context of measures, money and other daily applications. We will also be developing our reasoning and problem solving skills.  Please help us practise where you can, especially by supporting your child with learning number bonds to ten, twenty and hundred.   Help them understand using money in context of addition and subtraction.  


Our humanities topics are Climate Zones in Geography and Stone Age and Bronze Age in History.  

We are planning an exciting trip to St.  Albans Cathedralin later in the Autumn term.
