Together Everyone Achieves More


Welcome to Year 3

This term we are learning about lots of interesting and exciting topics.


  • Maths: we are learning about place value, addition and subtraction, rounding numbers and revising our learning from Year 2.
  • English: we have written a Stone Age recount, a character description of a fairy tale character and we are writing an alternative version of the Three Little Pigs.
  • Science: we are looking at the human body, food and nutrients.
  • History and Geography: we are learning about the Stone Age and all about the geography of the United Kingdom.
  • French: Miss Cook has been teaching us greetings, colours, numbers and the members of our family.
  • R.E.: we have been exploring Buddhism and finding out more about the Buddhist faith. We are now learning about Christianity in the lead up to Christmas.
  • P.S.H.E.: we have been talking about rules and how they keep us safe, our responsibilities within and outside of school and how we can be a kind friend.
