Year 3

Welcome to Year Three 


In year 3, children are taught by Ms Begum and Miss Hussain. Teaching and learning is supported by Miss Osborne and Miss Hall.


Welcome back.

We hope you have had a restful break.


This half term, teaching and learning will take on a historical perspective whereby children will become historians and archaeologists who will dig into the past and explore prehistory - the historical period of Stone age to Iron Age. They will look at chronology through time-lines, look up subject specific vocabulary in a dictionary and create a glossary of historical terms. They will also look at artefacts and what they tell us about how people lived in the past. Another aspect that they will explore is the changes that have occurred over this time-span and how early man developed and became more sophisticated.


Our Science topic this half term is the exploration and investigation of rocks and soils. Children will carry out investigations to understand these topics better. Children will examine and compare different kinds of rocks and learn that all rocks are made from a mixture of minerals. They will test the different qualities of rocks and learn how fossils are formed.                                                                             


In Mathematics, children will continue to develop their skills in multiplication and division. They will look at times-tables, up to 12, draw arrays to represent multiplication and division sentences, use repeated addition, use the vertical column method to multiply, solve word problems and divide. They will also learn to add and subtract money.


PE - Our PE session will continue to take place every Wednesday, and this half term, children will continue to develop their fitness and will take part in gymnastic sessions, so please make sure they are in P.E. kits, every Wednesday. Please also make sure that all jewellery is removed, ear rings taken out and long hair tied back, in line with health and safety guidelines.


Homework - All children have been given passwords for Read theory accounts and Rockstar’s times-tables - please ensure that your child goes onto these and completes some of the activities. Please also continue to listen to your child read at least three times a week. Once you have heard them read, question them about what they have read. This is a good way of developing understanding of the text.


Thank you for your continued support - Year 3 staff.
