Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!
Year 3 is such an exciting place to be. We have fantastic topics to guide our learning as well as many trips and other opportunities to provide a stimulating learning experience for the children. Read our webpage to find out more about what we do and do not hesitate to come and ask us if you have any more questions about your child’s learning.

Autumn Term
Our topic for this term is Tribal Tales. We will journey back in time to the time of the Stone Age. From hunting and cave painting to clothing and homes, we will learn about what life was like for our pre-historic ancestors.
We have a fantastic opportunity to become scientists during our next topic and discover how shadows are made.

Year 3 children are fantastic mathematicians, reasoners and problem solvers. Below you will find a list of topics that we will cover with a focus on reasoning, fluency and problem solving in all aspects of maths.
– Multiplication and division which will include mental methods and written methods.
– Column addition
– Column subtraction
– Grid Method

If you would like to help your child at home, learning multiplication tables and mental methods of calculating. Number bonds to 100 is a fantastic place to start. A strong grounding in key skills will help our children to make rapid progress.

In literacy we will be reading Ug. This is an exciting story of a boy called Ug, he is a genius of the Stone Age and his search for soft trousers. This text will fit nicely in with our topic and give us opportunities to have class debates, write poetry, role play and try our hand at persuasive writing.
We are also working hard to improve our handwriting, spelling and reading. Any extra help at home would be greatly appreciated.

Your child needs to be reading every night and bringing their signed reading journal to school with them each day. They will be given a homework grid each half term which will match their topic. This grid will give them a variety of activities to choose from such as writing, maths and creative art activities. Children can complete a task from the grid and bring their books back to school once a week.

They will also be given weekly spellings to learn.

P.E sessions will be held on Thursday, however we strongly advise that P.E kits are left in school for the entire half term and taken home to be washed during the half term breaks. They need a full kit which will include suitable footwear to wear for outdoor P.E. T-shirts in house team colours can be purchased from the front office.
The school will be funding P.E bags for every child in the school.

Below you will find links to websites that the children use to enhance their learning at school. These websites can be accessed from home. They are both fun and educational.
