Year 3

Welcome to Year 3.

Reading Challenge Books

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back to Summer!


For the first 3 weeks of this half term the children will be writing a narrative based on the story of ‘Flat Stanley’ and then innovating the story.  

For the last three weeks of the half term the children will be writing a narrative based on the book ‘Alice Dent and the Incredible Germs’ and innovating the story.  

In both instances, children will choose what they want to change in the story, for example, the outcome, the character or the setting.  



Our topics in maths this term will be continuing to learn about the duration of time, comparing durations, start and end times, measuring time in seconds and problem solving with time. Properties of shape turns and angles, angles in shapes and comparing angles. Children will learn how to draw angles, know the difference between horizontal and vertical and parallel and perpendicular. They will also recap the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. The last unit of the term will be mass and capacity. Children will learn measure and compare mass as well as add and subtract mass. They will learn to measure capacity as well as compare and add and subtract capacity. 

It is imperative for all children to log into their Mathletics and complete a task daily as part of their homework as this helps them consolidate their learning.  


This half term in science we will be asking the following questions, What is force? Can forces act on an object from a distance? Why does earth orbit the sun? By the end of the half term, children will be able to understand and describe how motion is caused by forces, understand and describe the behaviour of magnetic poles, classify materials in to magnetic and non-magnetic groups, investigate the role of magnetism in everyday life, interpret results to draw a conclusion and examine the behaviour of a magnetic field around a magnet. 


This half term in geography the children will be learning about fieldwork and the local area. They will learn to sketch a map with relevant features, considering the scale and size, identify and use maps and keys effectively, explore and represent land use in the local area and use maps effectively to plan journeys.  


In history this half term we will be learning about Tudors and trade. Children will understand how Tudors established trade links, how exploration led to trade, recognise how war impacted England, explore the causes of poverty in Tudor England and understand what the Spanish Armada was. 


In RE this half term children will be learning about Christianity and how do we answer ‘big’ questions? They will consider the existence of God, explore the reason for existence and understand how they as individuals may change the world.
