Welcome to Year 3
Miss Peacock and Mrs Parkhouse make up our Year 3 Team.
Our key text in English will be ‘Around the world in 80 days’, a retold version of the classic. Children will explore the story structure, characters, events and plot before planning and writing their own adventure story. There will be a focus on time adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, handwriting and accurate punctuation. Children will also be encouraged to use higher level vocabulary.
In reading children will explore a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. They will answer a variety of inference and vocabulary questions and learn to summarise what they have read.
We will move on to division dividing two digit numbers by 1 digit. We will then move on to measure and look at money, adding and subtracting money and then finding change. TT Rockstars will be updated with focused times tables and the other website that most children enjoy is ‘Hit the Button’.
This half term our theme is 'Around the world in 80 days'. The focus will be on locating the world's countries, using maps to focus on Europe, North America, concentrating on their environmental regions, key physical characteristics, their countries and cities.
