Year Three

Our Teacher is Mr Shelton Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Mitchell

In Year three our novel for this term is the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. The children will be creating wonderful different pieces of writing based on the novel covering many genres.  The children will be challenged to choose ambitious vocabulary to ensure their writing is exciting and they will include a wide range of grammatical features in their writing to suit each genre.

Maths this term will start with multiplication and division. Children will use a range of concrete manipulatives to show how multiplication and division are closely linked. Children will be able to multiply and divide by 10 and 100 using their place value knowledge from last term. They will move onto multiplying two digit numbers by one digit numbers. We then move onto securing our knowledge on time and we will finish the term on fractions where children will develop their understanding of part-whole relationships, fractions as part of a whole or a whole set and be able to add, subtract, compare and order fraction

Our topic for this term is “Europe” The children will be enjoying learning about the range of countries in Europe and their physical features. Each child takes home a “Discovery Box” where they can complete tasks to develop their understanding of the topic.

This term they got to make their own Eiffel Tower.

Our science topic is “Light and shadows”. The children will develop a clear understanding of the range of natural and manmade light sources, how shadows are formed and the ways in which we can reflect light.
