Year 3 Curriculum - Summer Term 1

 

Maths

This half term, we will be looking at number fractions and time.

  • Fractions: count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10
  • recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators
  • recognise and use fractions as numbers: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators
  • recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators
  • add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole [for example,  +  =  ]
  • compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators
  • solve problems that involve all of the above

 

  • Time: tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII, and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks
  • estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute; record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours; use vocabulary such as o’clock, am/pm, morning, afternoon, noon and midnight
  • know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year
  • compare durations of events [for example, to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks]

 

                                           

English Non-fiction

Non chronological reports        

We will be learning about the layout and features of non-chronological texts and autobiographies and biographies.

 

We will then plan and create our own.

  • discussing writing similar to that which they are planning to write in order to understand and learn from its structure, vocabulary and grammar
  • discussing and recording ideas/ proof-read for spelling and punctuation errors / read aloud their own writing, to a group or the whole class, using appropriate intonation and controlling the tone and volume so that the meaning is clear  (all narrative units)
  • increasing their familiarity with a wide range of books, including fairy stories, myths and legends, and retelling some of these orally
  • using conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions to express time and cause
  • discussing words and phrases that capture the reader’s interest and imagination
  • drawing inferences such as inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions, and justifying inferences with evidence
  • organising paragraphs around a theme
  • using fronted adverbials
  • using commas after fronted adverbials
  • using and punctuating direct speech
  • using the present perfect form of verbs in contrast to the past tense -in narratives,, creating settings, characters and plot -identifying main ideas drawn from more than one paragraph and summarising these
  • composing and rehearsing sentences orally (including dialogue)
  • progressively building a varied and rich vocabulary and an increasing range of sentence structures using conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions to express time and cause

 

In Reading Pupils will be taught to:

  • develop positive attitudes to reading, and an understanding of what they read, by:
    • reading books that are structured in different ways and reading for a range of purposes.
    • using dictionaries to check the meaning of words that they have read.
    • identifying themes and conventions in a wide range of books.
    • discussing words and phrases that capture the reader’s interest and imagination
  • understand what they read, in books they can read independently, by:
    • checking that the text makes sense to them, discussing their understanding, and explaining the meaning of words in context
    • asking questions to improve their understanding of a text.
    • drawing inferences such as inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions, and justifying inferences with evidence.
    • predicting what might happen from details stated and implied

Science - Light

We see objects because our eyes can sense light. Dark is the absence of light.

We cannot see anything in complete darkness. Some objects, for example, the sun, light bulbs and candles are sources of light. Objects are easier to see if there is more light. Some surfaces reflect light. Objects are easier to see when there is less light if they are reflective.

 

The light from the sun can damage our eyes and therefore we should not look directly at the sun and can protect our eyes by wearing sunglasses or sunhats in bright light.

 

Shadows are formed on a surface when an opaque or translucent object is between a light source and the surface and blocks some of the light. The size of the shadow depends on the position of the source, object and surface.

     

                                      

History        

The Greeks hated the Persians. The Persians took over Macedon and controlled their King until the Greeks forced the Persians out. Phillip then became king of Macedon. It was his dream to unite all the Greek city-states and defeat the Persians once and for all. However, Phillip was betrayed by his own bodyguard before he could realise his dream.

 

When Philip was assassinated, Alexander became king of Macedon. He defeated the Persians and took over their territory with his Greek army. When he reached Egypt he built a city and named it Alexandria. Alexander’s army eventually reached the mighty River Indus but his Greek soldiers wanted to go home.

 

Ptolemy built a library in Alexandria after Alexander’s death. Alexandria became a city buzzing with new ideas about mathematics and geometry, ideas about science and medicine.

 

                                    

PE

This term, the children will focus on rounders.  They will learn different skills and techniques, rules of the game and the importance of being part of a team in order to play effectively and successfully.

 

 

Art/Design & Technology

This term, we will link our art to our History topic of Alexander the Great. 

Children will learn how to work with and manipulate clay, to create a replica of a head statue of Alexander the Great.

 

Children will learn how to use their hands and tools to create different textures  and shapes to  construct a 3D sculpture!       

 

 

Health & Relationships Education - Healthy bodies, Healthy Minds

This topic explores how to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. It explores ways to maintain wellbeing and prevent illness; how to develop a healthy, balanced lifestyle; and the consequences and effects of different habits and choices.

 

It encourages the development of positive self-worth and recognition, what might affect or influence unhealthy ways of thinking, and how to overcome this.
