Year 3: Indigo and Lilac

This half term Year 3’s Power of Reading book is ‘Ug’, which is a stunning picture book about a boy called Ug who lives in the Stone Age. Being an inquisitive and intelligent child, Ug suggests a series of modifications to improve the quality of family life and Year 3 will explore this idea through Science specifically, but linking into other areas of the curriculum too.

In Maths, pupils will learn how to compare and order numbers up to 1000.  In order to do this, they will embed their knowledge of place value and use their skill of partitioning to understand the value of a number.  In addition to this, pupils will begin to solve word problems, using the knowledge and skills they have learnt in their lessons. This will include finding the missing numbers and using place value facts. 

In English, pupils will improve their knowledge of conjunctions for time, place and cause.  Pupils will use this writing skill to write reports based on our Power of Reading book.   They will also look at paragraphs in their writing and discover the way that paragraphs contribute to the cohesion of a piece of writing.  Through their lessons, pupils will learn to proof-read their work for errors.

In Humanities, pupils will be using skills of historical enquiry to investigate the era from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.  Pupils will be able to make comparisons between the different periods pf time, using the knowledge they already have from previous topics.  In addition to this, pupils will use their historical knowledge to write recounts and fact files.  Pupils will have the opportunity to develop their research skills to independently ask and answer their own questions.

Please be aware that Indigo Class will have PE on a Wednesday morning and Indigo Class will attend swimming lessons from 11th September also on a Wednesday morning. If there are any questions regarding anything related to Year 3, please do not hesitate to ask.
