This term in English we are focusing on several books by the well-known children’s author, Anthony Browne. The children will enjoy shared and independent reading experiences and will complete a variety of activities surrounded by his books. Children will explore different themes, illustrations and characters and learn how to identify different themes within his books, using this to create their own stories.
In Maths, the Year 3’s will focus on Place Value using 1, 2 and 3 digit numbers and Addition and Subtraction.
Our main focus is to get children to understand the value of any digit in a three digit number and secure in using a number line. In regard to addition and subtraction, they will use the column methods to help them do so. Recalling times table facts rapidly, will also be a huge focus throughout the year.
Our Topics this term include learning about healthy diets, understanding why we have skeletons and learning about the weather and climate.
The children will be putting together different parts of the skeletal body, explaining why we have muscles and why it is important to eat healthily.
Later on in the term, Year 3 will be creating fact files about different climates in a variety of countries around the world.
