Welcome to Year 3 at Holy Family with Miss Lacey and Miss McAndrew!

We hope that during the year you will enjoy finding out about all the wonderful things we will be learning in our lessons. To keep up to date with what is happening inside our classroom follow us on twitter @HolyFamilyL8_3L


Please find below the details of our learning for Autumn Term 1:

Come and See

This half term, our topics are Homes and Promises. In our Homes topic, we will learn what makes a home special, the joys and sorrows of being a family at home and God’s vision for every family. For our Promises topic, we will learn that belonging to a group involves promises and rules and the meaning of the promises made at Baptism.



Year 3 will begin by looking at the place value of 3-digit numbers. We will then use this knowledge to read and write numbers up to 1,000, compare and order numbers up to 1,000 and represent numbers using different representations. We will learn to count in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100 and finding 10 or 100 more or less than given numbers. 



This half term, we will begin by writing recounts about our summer holiday's and focus on using fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases. We will then be looking at a new Talk 4 Writing novel, ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes, to help with our fiction and poetry writing.



Year 3 will be looking at rocks this half term. We will begin by deciding how to sort rocks using their properties and then will learn about the 3 different types of rocks; sedimentary, igneous, metamorphic. We will discover how fossils and soil are formed.



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 begin by focusing on e-safety; how to stay safe online. We will then look at a ‘Big Robots’ unit of work that allows the children to develop their understanding of programming and directional language. We will learn the meaning of algorithms and the importance of order and accuracy.



Our PE this term will be on Tuesday's and Thursday's

Y3 will be focusing on Basketball and Gymnastics this half term. We will develop our throwing, passing and team working skills through Basketball and will develop our knowledge of movements during our Gymnastics lessons. 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!
