Here is the overview of learning for Year 3 for this year. Our guided reading lessons are planned to link to the wider curriculum. English lessons are planned to link to a central text covering a range of purposes for writing.  You can find out more about reading and English lessons on the English Curriculum page. If you have any questions about any of the areas of learning, please contact your child's class teacher.

This half term we will be making the most of writing opportunities linked to the picture book called 'Zeraffa Giraffa' by Dianne Hofmeyr and Jane Ray.

This half-term we will be learning about the coast around the UK. We will be finding out about why the coast has been important to the UK.  We will identify physical features of the coastline. We will learn about tourism and industry connected to the coast and look at how the coast has changed.

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 looking 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?

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 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.

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.
