Welcome to Year 3!

A very warm welcome to Year 3's webpage! This term, our topic will be 'Footprints From the Past'.  We will learn all about life in prehistoric times and the evidence they leave behind today. Before we launch into that we will spend the beginning of the term on a short topic called 'Brainwaves' which will help the children to get back into learning mode. 


In English, our book for the term is Ug by Raymond Briggs.  We will be exploring what life was like back in prehistory as Ug goes on his quest for soft trousers. Children will use Ug’s story as ideas for their own writings through letters, narratives and instructions.


In Maths, we will be following the mastery scheme of learning which focuses on three aspects of mathematics – fluency, reasoning and problem solving. We have been focussing on place value and refreshing our times tables. We will also be delving deeper into our understanding of place value, up to 3-digits, when it comes to addition and subtraction.


Our science topic this term is Rocks, we will learn about how rocks are formed, their properties and what they are used for. We will also be taking a closer look at how fossils are formed and what their location tells us about when they are from.

As usual, we will be offering the children a full curriculum with PE, Art, History, Geography, French, Music, RE and PHSE.
