Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

With Mrs Watson, Mrs Hunt and Mrs Donnelly

Our Curriculum Vehicle for the Spring Term is Story Sacks.

In history we will be finding out about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor.


In geography we will be using maps, atlases and globes to locate countries and describe features. We will also be learning about different time zones.


In science we will be identifying the right types and amount of nutrition. We will also be learning about the skeleton of humans and some animals, as well as the muscles used for support, protection and movement.


In art we will be sketching landscapes for our story sacks, then using primary and secondary colours to paint these.


In design technology we will be designing, making and evaluating story sacks based on our stories. We will be focusing on our sewing techniques.


In computing we will combine a mixture of text and graphics to share our stories. We will be learning how to save and retrieve work we have saved.


In music we will be appreciating and understanding a wide range of live and recorded music drawn from great composers.


In PSHE we will be looking at how our actions affect ourselves and others, and how to care about other people's feelings. We will also be learning to recognise a variety of risks and decide how to behave responsibly.


In Modern Foreign Languages we will be learning the names for family members and pets in French.


During our Maths lessons this term, we will be focusing on number, measurement and statistics units.  In number we will be continuing our work on multiplication and division, then moving onto our measurement units where we will be focusing on money followed by length and perimeter.


Within our English lessons this half term, we will be looking at a variety of texts, including non-fiction and stories to go with our story sacks. In order to write the stories for our story sacks we will be looking in increased detail at the features included within a story. The children will be expected to use their grammar, punctuation and descriptive skills to extend their writing.
