In Year 3 we love learning. Our web page is updated regularly with information and examples of our learning. Please check it regularly to find out what exciting things we are doing!

Summer 1

English

 

Our learning this term in English will be based on the historical figure of Boudicca.

 

 

We will be using our knowledge of the Iron Age Celts from last term to write a narrative based on part of Boudicca's life. We will be building vocabulary skills and we will have lots of opportunities to explore the language and use it in short bursts of writing.

 

 

Maths

 

In Maths, we will be learning how to read, understand and represent data in tally charts and bar charts.  We will look at a variety of different scales and become super confident in answering questions by looking at the information in the charts.

 

 

  

 

 

We will also be learning about fractions.  We will be counting in tenths, adding fractions and learning about equivalent fractions.  We shall use the bar model to help us become confident with fractions.  If we know the times tables   (year 2 -x2 x5 x10      year 3 - x3 x4 x8)  then fractions is a lot easier.

 

 

 

 

ICT

 

We are learning about E Safety , we will understand the need for caution when using an internet search for images and what to do if we find anything unsuitable.  Also we will learn to  use a range of software  to collect and present information.

 

RE - Islam

 

We will learn about the importance of the prophet Muhammad for the Islamic community and why he is seen to be a good role model.

 

PSHCE 

 

We are linking our PSHCE to ICT and learning about media literacy and digital resilience.  The children will learn many skills such as:  to understand how the internet can be used positively for leisure, for school and for work and to develop strategies to recognise whether something they see online is true or accurate.

 

 

 

PE

 

Striking and fielding - Cricket and Rounders.

 

We will be learning the skills need to play Cricket and Rounders.

How to throw a ball with speed and accuracy, catch safely, run with speed and have fun by supporting your team.

Our fabulous PE work!

Engineering. Lovely Friday afternoons.

 

In Engineering we will be investigating levers.

We shall investigate different levers within pop-up books then we will design and create our own using sheet materials, being able to join and combine to create movement using varied techniques, such as slots, shapes and linkages. 

In Well-being, we will be exploring lots of different exercises and activities that will help develop physical and emotional well-being.

Our amazing well-being work!
