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.

Towneley Park

As a hook to our literacy learning we went to the park to dig in the sand. 

We used our imaginations to help us create a new character which was found in the sand.

We asked lots of 'I wonder' questions and had a competition to see who could dig the biggest hole.

Nobody managed to get to Australia.

Non- Chronological Report 

Building on our learning in science, 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. 



In ICT, year 3 used variety of applications to design healthy food options.
