Please find below the details of our learning for Autumn Term 2:

Come and See

This half term, our topics are Promises and Visitors. For our Promises topic, we will learn that belonging to a group onvolves promises and rules and the meaning of the promises made at Baptism. In our Visitors topic, we will explore how we prepare for visitors and understand how Advent is a time for waiting for the coming of Jesus.



Year 3 will continue to look at the place value of 3-digit numbers. We will then use this knowledge to add and subtract 3 digit numbers using formal written methods and then to multiply and divide.



This half term, we will begin by looking at contractions and when to use a/an. We will then write instructions for our ‘Iron Man’ novel from last half term before looking at a new Talk 4 Writing novel, ‘Hansel and Gretel’ by Anthony Browne, to help us write character descriptions, sense poems and diary entries.



Y3 will be looking at ‘Animals including humans’ this half term. We will begin by deciding how to sort food into different groups before exploring the 5 main food groups and their properties and then learning what a balanced diet is. We will then look at the function of the skeleton and muscles.



This term, we will be looking at the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will start at the Stone Age and move through each time period discovering when these occurred, what happened during these times and the daily life.



This half term, we will look at a ‘Get Blogging’ unit of work that allows the children to understand how the internet works and how it can be used for communication. We will discover how blogs work and create some of our own.



Our PE this term will be on Thursday's

Y3 will be focusing on indoor athletics this half term. We will develop our throwing, jumping and running skills for relay races, standing long and high jump and chest throws. Children will also be regularly working on improving their stamina by walking/ jogging/ running a ‘Daily Mile’.


Should you ever wish to discuss anything about your child, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 3 team in order to arrange an appointment. We will be on the exit door every evening or, you can contact the office if you wish to request an appointment.


We look forward to working with your children this year!
