Things to Remember





TERM 4 -Year 3 are swimming.


P.E Kits and Uniform


We ask that all uniform is clearly named.  We expect all children to be equipped with a full PE kit: shorts, t-shirt, socks and trainers as well as a jumper and tracksuit bottoms or leggings whilst the weather is cold.

For swimming children must come equipped with a swim suit (boys trunks not shorts), swimming hat and towel.

Children with pierced ears should remove earrings for all PE sessions including swimming, and must have their hair tied back for health and safety reasons.


 Times Tables

Times tables will be practiced regularly in class. Once a term we will have a quiz. Don't forget to use 'Times Table Rockstars' to help you with your tables.

If you have forgotten your login, don't forget to ask your teacher.


 Spelling Shed

Spellings will be practiced regularly in class. Once a week(Thursdays) we will have a quiz. Don't forget to use 'Spelling Shed' to help you with your spellings.

If you have forgotten your login, don't forget to ask your teacher.



We encourage children to read as much as possible from their own books, school library and local library.  Every time they return their reading journal to school, they can move up their 'Race to Read' chart in their classroom, earning certificates as they go!

The children have all been given an 'Active Learn' login (Bug Club) so they can access books online at home.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ask.


Thank you

2021-2022 Year 3 Long Term Planning

Term 3

In our history this term, we are going to be learning about Ancient Egypt. We will be finding out about Ancient Egyptian farming techniques, their beliefs and even who built the pyramids.


In our English lessons, we will be developing our sentence structure through the use of fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and conjunctions. We are also going to learning how to use inverted commas to show direct speech. Our book will be Marcy and The Riddle of the Sphinx by Joe Todd-Stanton.


Our Maths No Problem chapters this term focus on measuring. We will be measuring length, mass and volume by reading scales.  We will also be applying our understanding to solve related word problems.


In Science we are investigating forces and finding about magnets. What materials are magnetic? Do magnets have a force?


In DT we are looking at what goes into making a vegetable soup. What techniques are used to cut vegetables? How are the vegetables turned into a liquid? We are looking forward to tasting our own soup too!



Term 2


This term in English we are reading a wonderful version of The Iron Man by Ted Hughes, illustrated by Chris Mould.  

As well as enjoying the story, we will be developing our writing by exploring different sentence types.


Our guided reading text is Tinsel by Sibeal Pounder.


Our Maths No Problem focus for this term is Multiplication and Division. We will be looking at multiplication and division of 3, 4 and 8. Pupils will then get to use their experience of multiplication and division to solve word problems. 


In Geography the children will begin to learn about erosion and deposition in rivers, transport in cities and  the countryside and the associated pollution and trade between countries.  These topics will then be revisited at a later date. 


In History the children will learn about prehistoric times, the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age.


The Science lessons will begin to learn about different types of rock and soil, they will develop their knowledge of solids, liquids and gases and begin to learn about how sounds are made and heard.


In DT we will be continuing to learn about shell structures, how they work and their uses.  The children will design and make their own structure.


The children will continue to look at the work of different artists this term, Jackson Pollock and Wassilly Kadinsky, with a focus on abstract art.




Term 1

To welcome the children back this term we will be enjoying a book 'Bloom' by Anne Booth and Robyn Wilson-Owen. We will create 'blooms' of our own and start growing our own seeds.

Following on with our nature theme, in English, we are reading a book called The Tin Forest by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson. We are looking forward to seeing some exciting description and developing our prediction skills.


For our whole class guided reading, we will be reading Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. This links in with our history topic of the Stone Age.
