Year 3

Hello and welcome to Year 3.

All of our English work and Reading work link to our class texts that allow us to take a cross curricula approach to our learning. Some of the texts we enjoy in Year 6 include: The Iron Man, Stig of the Dump, Fantastic Mr Fox and The Firework Maker's Daughter. Children will learn to apply grammar for writing across a range of genres whilst having the opportunity to draft and edit their work to produce writing that they can be extremely proud of. In maths, children will be able to work on the four number operations, explore fractions of amounts and numbers and focus their multiplication and division skills. Children will also continue to strengthen their understanding of problem solving across all their maths units.

During the Autumn term children will enjoy the topics 'Gods and Mortals' where they will learn about Ancient Greece and 'Mighty Metals' where they look at different materials and their properties. They will also explore forces and how they are used in the world they live in.

In the Spring term children will learn cover The Stone Age, The Bronze Age and The Iron Age through the topic of 'Tribal Tales'. They will then explore the world of predators and prey in our topic 'Predator!' They will be given the opportunity to create their own perfect predator.

In the Summer term children will focus on the world of modern architecture and graffiti within our topic 'Urban Pioneers'. Finally, we will look at earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis as part of our work in 'Rocks, Relics and Rumbles'

Year 3 staff are Mrs Collinson, Mrs Surgeon and Mrs Rollason.
