Next half term, we will be continuing to look at adding and subtracting 2 and 3-digit numbers. Later in the term, we will be moving on to multiplying and dividing. We will start with a focus on our 2s, 5s, 10s and 3 times tables. During the morning session, children will continue to practise their basic skills and Number Sense.



During English, we will be continuing to look at word classes such as nouns, adjectives, adverbs and conjunctions. Our aim is to start independently including these in our writing. This term we will have a go at some new writing styles including book reviews and persuasive adverts.



During Science, we will be studying Forces and Magnets. The aim is to understand more about the world around us. Some of the forces we will focus on include: friction, magnetism, pushing and pulling. We will complete several investigations and experiments to discover how these forces work and affect our daily life.

Look at this beautifully painted pebble. 3O carefully designed and then painted a pebble to go into our mental health rock garden. What great work!




English: We started English in Year 3 by writing an autobiography for our topic, ‘All About Me’. Following this, we moved on to study a short animated film called, ‘Broken: Rock, Paper, Scissors’ and have completed several writing tasks based on this, including a Wanted posted and a letter.


Maths: This term, we have focussed on place value introducing three digit numbers. We have compared, ordered and partitioned numbers. We are moving on to using these skills to work on addition and subtraction. Each morning we have been using the ‘Number Sense’ programme to improve our quick recall of number facts.


Science: To link with our ‘All About Me’ topic, we have been studying ‘Health and Movement’. Throughout this topic we have looked at nutrition, healthy diets and the different nutritional needs of humans compared to other animals.
