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 looking at the Spiderwick Chronicles. We will look at character and setting description and how authors build suspense. We will continue to improve our grammar knowledge and use this in our own writing. 

In Maths we will continue to improve our arithmetic skills and our times tables on a weekly basis. We will continue to strengthen our understanding of addition and subtraction, using formal and informal methods. We will start to look at measurements including length, mass and capacity. We will also start to explore fractions.  

In Science we are going to become investigators. We will look at a range of investigations and improve our understanding of data, fair tests and how data can be represented. 

RE will involve us looking at different religions and cultures. We will focus on the question 'What can we learn from the life and teachings of Jesus?'

In Geography, we will explore the culture and lifestyle of Spain. We will look into what makes the country unique and how those who inhabit it live their daily lives. 

During our ICT we are going to continue to improve our understanding of coding. We will use SCRATCH to improve and move us forwards in our computer knowledge.

PSHE will give us the opportunity to discuss and celebrate how to be 'A Healthy Me.'

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.
