Welcome to Year 3
Mrs Hayes and Mrs Parkhouse make up our Year 3 Team.
Autumn Term 2021
Our key text in English is ‘A Walk in London’ by Salvatore Rubbino. There will be a focus on accurate tense, expanded noun phrases, conjunctions, handwriting and accurate punctuation. Children will also be encouraged to use higher level vocabulary.
In Maths children will be exploring numbers up to 1000 and beyond. They will use place value grids and concrete resources to gain a good understanding of the value of each digit in a 3 digit number. Children will order and compare numbers up to 1000. Later in the term, children will focus on using money and then comparing statistics on tally charts, pictograms, bar charts and tables.
Our Geography theme this term is the UK. Children will learn about the four countries that make up the UK, their capital cities, regions, physical features and landmarks.
Children will take part in fieldwork where they will study part of the local area and in doing so will develop their geographical skills - creating a map with symbols, observing human and physical features and conducting a land use survey
In our Science lessons the children will be learning about light. They will research light sources. We will carry out investigations on reflections and shadows.
