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

In English, we will be studying lots of interesting and exciting texts and producing writing that links to each book.

This half term we will be making the most of writing opportunities linked to the picture book called 'Journey' by Aaron Becker.

This half term we will be finding out about some of the history of our local area. Lots of things change over time and we will be looing at how the local area has changed and why. We will find out about some of the places and buildings that we see every day but might not know the story of. Have a look at these pictures. Do you recognise any of the places? Can you spot any clues about the history of our local area?

This place has changed a lot. Do you recognise it?

This half term half term we will be learning about light and shadows. We will find out about light sources; how light travels and how shadows are formed. We will investigate how shadows change size and whether all objects create shadows. 


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.
