Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Welcome to Year 3!  


In English, we will be reading 'Small in the City', Through this text, we will be focusing on sentence structure, punctuation, correct use of Standard English and creative writing including poems. Later in the term, we will be exploring different text types including, poetry and story writing. 


In Maths, we will be learning about place value, rounding and re-capping our number bonds. We will be also looking at mental and written methods of addition and subtraction. We would appreciate and encourage any help with this at home, as well as practising times tables.


In Science, we will be learning about Rocks, Fossils and Soils. We are also linking this to the 'The Stone Age' unit in History and the life story of Mary Anning.


In Art, we are creating gestural drawings using the medium of charcoal. In Design and Technology, we will be baking bread and learning the journey of bread from farm to your plate - yum!


In the first half term, our Humanities topic is focused on 'The Stone Age' and 'The Bronze Age'. In the second half of the term, we will be switching to Geography and learning about climate zones, exploring how climates vary around the world. We have an exciting learning experience planned so watch out for the details at the start of the Autumn term!
