Year 3: Indigo and Lilac

Year 3


We are very much looking forward to welcoming all of our pupils back to school on 8th March and have been so impressed with the work that has been completed on J2e.


In Year 3 this half term pupils will base their learning around their Power of Reading book ‘How the World Works: A hands-on guide to our planet amazing planet’ which is an introduction to the earth's natural cycles and the impact of human actions on the environment.


In English, pupils will learn about subheadings and how they help a reader to navigate through a text. Pupils will also investigate word families and how common words can relate to each other as well as the adding of prefixes and suffixes.


In Maths, pupils will measure the perimeter of 2D shapes.  Pupils will then study time, estimating and reading with accuracy considering the use of minutes and seconds.  Pupils will be able to read the time on both digital and analogue clocks.


In Geography, Year 3 will study learn about the world by investigating the world’s countries using maps and other sources.  Pupils will be able to describe and understand the key aspects of physical geography in the different countries of the world.  In addition, pupils will study volcanoes and earthquakes and how these are formed and differentiate between the different types of volcanoes on our planet.


In DT, pupils will use research and design criteria to design protective clothing and equipment.  Pupils will understand why different types of clothing is worn and their purpose.  This will result in pupils designing an experiment to study the durability of materials within their design.


In PSHE pupils will look at what it means to be part of a community and research diversity. Pupils will be learning about E-Safety in computing and how to stay safe when online.


PE will continue for both classes on Wednesday mornings so please ensure pupils attend school in the appropriate PE kit.
