Welcome to Year 3
Mrs Hayes and Mrs Parkhouse make up our Year 3 Team.
Spring Term 2022
Our key text in English is ‘The Train Mouse’, by Uwe Timm. There will be a focus on commas in a list, prepositions and conjunctions. In reading, children will explore a range of poetry and non-fiction texts. They will learn to recite and perform some poems. They will continue to develop their inference and retrieval skills in a range of texts.
In Maths children will learn how to multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number using repeated objects and representations (see image for 23 x 3).
They will then learn to divide a 2-digit number by a 1-digit by partitioning numbers into 10s and 1s and sharing them into equal groups.
Children will also revise their knowledge of coins and notes then calculate money problems. Later in the term, we will work on statistics—reading and interpreting different charts.
Our focus this half term is Geography and our enquiry question is ‘Can you plan a trip around the world?’ to answer this question we will be revising our knowledge of the world map. Learning the 8 points of the compass, using compass directions and grid references to read a map.
In Science children will learn about nutrition and healthy eating, human and animal skeletons and human muscles. They will compare, contrast and group different skeletons and learn the names of specific bones and their functions.
