Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to Year 3! There are two year 3 classes with a total of 48 children.  Our two classes are 2KD and 2JT, Mrs Dukes with Mrs Jones and Mr Tidy with Mrs Callow.

During the term ahead, our whole school topic is called This is Me, during this time we will be learning all about ourselves, how to stay healthy and even doing a self portrait!

In Maths, we will be reactivating our knowledge of place value by creating, comparing and ordering number up to 1000. Once our place value is secure we will be moving on to the formal methods of addition and subtraction.

In English lessons, we will be writing to entertain. We will be writing a range of descriptions (for both characters and settings) and using these skills to write our own version of traditional tales – adding innovations incorporating our original ideas.

In Reading lessons we will be reading texts from our key authors – these are Malorie Blackman, Anne Fine and Dick King-Smith. We will be using our expert tips to help us, predict, infer and summarise information.

In Art, we will be developing our pencil techniques. We will learn to explore a full range of pencil grades and how they can be used to create different effects. We will be learning about our focus artist Frieda Kahlo and creating our own self portraits in her style.

During PE lessons this term, we will focus on dance and Football. We will be developing our ability to control a ball while moving through a space in Football. In dance, we will be creating a dance inspired by our History topic The Stone Age.
