Year Three


Year 3

We’re nearly half way through the school year and we have certainly accomplished a lot in the past term! This term the Victorians are taking over and we will delve back in time. We will learn about Victorian houses, schools and how life differs from today.

In Literacy we will continue to develop our reading comprehension and writing skills focused around the book Oliver Twist. Units this term include diary writing, setting descriptions, poetry and an adventure narrative.

We will begin to introduce some new methods in Numeracy. We will also reinforce our understanding of data, shape, direction, money, time, fractions and measure. It will definitely be busy.

As for our afternoon subjects, we have a busy term. In R.E. we are focusing on people from the Old Testament from the Bible, also looking at what makes a good Christian and finally as Easter draws near who are important people in the Easter story.  In P.E. we are lucky enough to have a coach for hockey which will keep us very active.   Healthy living will be a particular focus in Science as well as Design and technology.  We will also be looking at plants after half term.  In Music, we will build on our knowledge and continue to learn how to read musical notes.  In French our focus will shift from numbers and emotions to dates including weekdays and months.  As part of our Art topic we will explore various famous artist for example Claude Monet and William Turner which we will use to influence our final pieces. 

Miss Benger and Mrs Dupree are so pleased with everyone’s progress this year and cannot wait to see how much more we can achieve together!
