Autumn Term 1

Healthy Animals including humans.


The children will be reading and learning stories by children's author Aesop's fables. They will be exploring narratives through their writing and reading lessons in school. The children will learn and innovate a story through talk for writing. They will write their own stories and retell them. 

The children have visited Gazegill Organic Farm to find out where our food comes from.  They will be learning how to be healthy and which food groups provide the nutrients need for a healthy body.



Non- Chronological Report 

Building on our learning in history, the children will begin to gather information to produce their own non-chronological report about healthy eating.



We will begin the year by revising the simple rules of number work. Place value and the number system will be our focus as well as beginning to revisit other mathematical concepts such as measurement, geometry and calculation. The children will be introduced to Place Value counters and how to use them to support our understanding of number and place value and calculations. 




In Geography, Year 3 will be exploring the counties and the cities of the U.K. We will build on our learning in Year 2, identifying and describing the human and physical characteristics of major cities in the U.K and comment on features such as hills, mountains, coasts, rivers and land use patterns. 





The children in Year 3 will have P.E twice a week. P.E will take place in school on Monday afternoons and Thursday Mornings. This half term the children will be taking P.E outside and will be focusing on Invasion Games. 



Every Friday afternoon all children have the opportunity to develop new skills and experiences through enrichment. Every activity aims to improve one of our learning muscles and help us in our daily learning in school.
