Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

 

 

Maths

In maths this term we will be refining our column addition and subtraction skills and continuing to apply these to real-life situations, we will also be developing our understanding of inverse operations. We will look at the properties of shapes and investigate right-angles and perimeters. We will also be learning about statistics and data handling.  We will be particularly focusing on the 4 and 8 times tables this term.

In literacy, we will read different newspaper reports and produce our own WW2 inspired one. We will also look at a range of plays to examine how we can use expression to convey meaning. We will be writing a story with historical settings, linked to our topic and write a recount.  In addition, we will read and perform different performance poems.

During the first half term, we will be investigating plants and the functions of their different parts. There will be explorations of how plants grow and flowers’ role in the life cycle of flowering plants. In the second half of the term we will be looking at rocks, including volcanoes, the different types of rocks and how they are formed.
