Year 3

Welcome to the Year 3 class page for Tree Frog class (Miss Nelmes), Tawny Owl class (Miss Powell) and Turtle class (Mr Munnnings).

This term, in English, we will be reading Stone Age Boy and will be making predictions and answering comprehension questions. We will also be looking at The Sailing Boat in the Sky by Quentin Blake and will be improving our letter writing skills by writing to the author. When exploring The Three Little Pigs we will use our writing techniques to write our own versions.

In Maths we will continue to improve our arithmetic skills and our times tables on a weekly basis. We will investigate place value, ordering and comparing numbers and balancing calculations. When exploring multiplication, we will use different informal methods and when improving our addition we will use mental, informal and formal methods.

In Science we are going to explore the skeleton. We will look at human and animal skeletons and will investigate the three uses of our skeletons: movement, support and protection. Using the food wheel we will look at the five food groups and think about ways we can make our bodies and skeletons fit and healthy.

RE will involve us looking at different religions and cultures. We will focus on the question 'What is important to me?'

In History, we will be travelling back to the Stone Age where we will investigate how people lived during the time period. We will explore how Stone Age people cooked their food, built their shelters and what cultural beliefs they held.

During our ICT we are going to continue to improve our understanding of coding. We will use coding to create a moving, lego masterpiece.

PSHE will give us the opportunity to discuss responsible choices, to think about others' points of view and to express and create our own 'dream' and 'nightmare' schools.

Please ensure that you are reading with your child at least three times a week and recording this into their reading diary. Children should also be practising times tables regularly at home.
