Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


We hope you are looking forward to learning about lots of exciting topics in the final term of Year 3!


In English, we will be reading a range of texts such as, 'The Lost Spells', 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' and 'The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams'. Through these texts, we will be focusing on sentence structure, punctuation, correct use of Standard English and creative writing. We will be exploring different text types including, poetry, reports and story writing. 


In Maths, we will be learning about measurement, time and estimation. We will also be recapping our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills. Please help us in supporting your children to consolidate their learning by practising their times tables, reading the time and recapping the different fractions. 


In Science, we will be learning about Forces and Magnets. We will compare and categorise everyday materials and investigate how different things move on different surfaces. 


In Art, we are making 3D visual maps and fruit inspired clay tiles. In Design and Technology, we will be working on tie dye and sewing skills. 


In the first half term, our Humanities topic is focused on South America and specifically Brazil. We will be exploring different physical and human features as well as understanding location and time zones around the world. In the second half of the term, we will be learning about Ancient Egyptians. We have an exciting learning experience planned so watch out for the details at the start of the Summer term!
