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 newspapers and leaflets. We will explore the features of both, thinking about audience and purpose. Together we will create our own newspaper articles, informative leaflets and even look into emails.

In Maths we will continue to improve our arithmetic skills and our times tables on a weekly basis. We will strengthen our understanding of addition and subtraction and will continue to multiply numbers by 10 and 100 . When exploring addition and subtraction, we will use a range of informal and mental methods. 

In Science we are going to explore rocks. We will look at the three ways in which rocks are formed; sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. We will also look at the fossil process and be given the chance to create our own fossils.

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 continue to travel back in time. This term we will visit the Bronze Age and Iron Age where we will investigate how people lived during the time period. We will focus on the difference and similarities between the three time periods and how culture and people changed.

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 differences.

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.
