This half-term, the children will be studying two fiction books; ‘Stone Age Boy’ and   ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’. They will be writing stories based on the same structure as these books.


The children will be looking at identifying numbers up to 1000, finding place value of up to 3 digit numbers, finding 10 or 100 more of less than a given number and counting from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100. They will then move on to adding and subtracting, focusing on adding a three-digit number and multiples of one, a three-digit number and multiples of ten, and a three digit number and multiples of a hundred.


In Science, the children will be learning about soils and rocks. This will include learning about erupting volcanoes, testing hardness of rock samples and understanding the fossilisation process. The children will also receive a three week science homework project based on the subject.


The children will be learning about the Stone Age and looking at how life changed for the people when they moved into the Iron Age.


For this half-term, the children will be learning about the skills of football, on Wednesdays, and on Fridays, the children will be taught hockey skills. Please could the children bring in their outdoor PE kits for both lessons.


Both Literacy and Numeracy homework will be sent home on Fridays to be returned back by Wednesday the following week. Spellings, which do not need to be handed in, will be handed out on the Tuesday ready for a test on the following Monday. If your child misplaces their spelling sheet, you should find them on the school website.

I am really looking forward to this year and I hope your children enjoy their learning experiences in Year 3. If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to come in and see me.
