Autumn 2 - History 
In history, we will be looking at local history. We will explore the history of Cadbury as well as learn about members of the Cadbury family.
Autumn 2 - Maths
Year 3 have worked really hard on Place Value and Addition and Subtraction. We thought about the different values of numbers and showing numbers in different ways. We have even used the base ten blocks to build some really big numbers together!
We have all learnt how to use column method for addition and subtraction and we even managed to use tricky regrouping and exchanging. 
Autumn 2 - Science
Our Science topic this half term is Plants. We have already sketched a plant and labelled the different parts. We can even explain what each of those parts do. We planted some seeds in different conditions so that we could find out for ourselves what plants need to grow!
Autumn 1 - Beauty and the Beast
In English lessons this half term, we're going to be basing our writing on the classic story of Beauty and the Beast. We have seen the Disney film and read several different versions of the story. The children suggested how they are different and why. We are going to start writing a description piece about the Beast's castle soon!
It's been a great start to the year in Year 3. Both Miss Smith and Mr Carman have been very impressed with how quickly all the children have settled into their new classrooms and their new routines. 
Keep up the great work!
