Year 3

Welcome to our Year 3 page!

Please visit this page to find up to date information, as well as seeing the fantastic learning we've been completing in the year group. 



Our learning this term 


Literacy - We will be starting by using the film 'Ice Age' to work on character description, whilst also linking to our topic learning - Scavengers and Settlers. We will then move through to the Stone Age where we will base our literacy around the book 'The Stone Age Boy.' Here we will be creating narratives based on the story as well as improving our understanding of what life was like during The Stone Age. In addition to this we will be focusing on different elements of SPAG and practising spellings as well as phonics. 


VIPERS - We will be focusing on a series of picture books to get to grips with key reading skills as well as a range of film clips. 


Maths - In the first couple of weeks we will be focusing on number and place value. Here we will be looking at the value of digits in up to 3 digit numbers. We will look at a range of different reasoning problems linked to this as well as keeping up to date with practising times tables and number bonds. 


IPC - Our first IPC topic is 'Scavengers and Settlers' which takes us up to Christmas. This covers the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. We will have plenty of exciting activities planned to learn as much as we can about this period of history. 


Science - In science our first topic is Forces. We will look at friction, gravity, air resistance, water resistance and magnets. 


PSHE - In PSHE we will be using the book 'What makes me a me' and talking about what makes us individual and unique and celebrating our differences. We have some fantastic activities planned. 


Music - At the moment, we are unable to teach recorders. We are hoping to resume this later in the year, following government advice.
