Our Class Story for this half term:

Here is the overview of learning for Year 3 for this year. Our English and guided reading lessons are planned to linke to the wider curriculum. If you have any questions about any of the areas of learning, please contact your child's class teacher.

You can find out about some of our main topics this half term below. Don't forget, some really useful tools that you can use at home are Google Earth and the DK Findout website - you can find out lots about all of our topics there. Click on the links below:

In history this term, we will be studying the part of pre-history called the Stone Age. We will be finding out about the different periods of the Stone Age and how the discoveries Stone Age people made changed the world. We'll be learning about the role of archaeologists and how we know what life in the Stone Age was like by looking at a range of artefacts and sources of evidence.

As part of our topic, we will be finding out about significant sites that are still vsisible today that give us clues about life in the Stone Age. Two of the sites we will be finding out about are Skara Brae and Stonehenge.

This term we will be finding out about nutrition. We will be looking at how animals including humans need the right nutrition to stay healthy. We will find out about what different food types animals, including carnivores, herbivores and omnivores need. For humans we will be learning aout the 'Eat Well' plate and the amount of each food we need. 

We will also be learning about skeletons, muscles and joints and how nutrition is important to keep all of these things healthy and working properly. We will be learning about skeletons in other animals too, not just humans. Can you recognise these animals from their skeletons?


Remember to read at home at least three times a week and keep practising your times tables on TT Rockstars.

Below is the homework menu for this half term. Have a look at the options. Some might take a few minutes and some might take longer - it's up to you.  If you need any resources or you need any of the tasks explaining, please ask your teacher. Remember, some of the tasks might take longer than a week. If you complete them all, ask your teacher for more ideas. 


Don't forget to keep learning the words on our word list too! You can find the Statutory words under the Homework Menu.


Our PE days during the this term are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. There may be changes to the PE days some weeks so please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school all week.

Indoor Kit = plain white t-shirt, shorts and suitable shoes (pumps or trainers)

Outdoor Kit = tracksuit bottoms and warm jacket and shoes suitable for the outdoors (trainers)

Please be reminded that no jewellery should be worn and earrings MUST be removed by the child for any PE session. Long hair needs to be tied back. Please note that football kits are not acceptable as part of our PE kit.

Useful Websites:

This is a new website introduced just before half term. This is a fun and competitive way for your child to learn their times tables. Look out for new competitions and challenges! Children's log in details are in their organisers.
