Welcome to Year 3
This half term Year 3’s Power of Reading book is ‘Ug’ which is a stunning picture book about a boy called Ug who is living in the Stone Age. Being an inquisitive and intelligent child, Ug suggests a series of modifications to improve the quality of family life. With the help of his father, who is slowly coming round to his son's way of thinking, Ug comes tantalisingly close to his ultimate garment goal, only to find that there are some obstacles even a boy genius can't overcome.
In Maths, pupils will learn how to compare and order numbers up to 1000. In order to do this, pupils 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 maths lessons. This will include finding the missing number 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 create reports based on our Power of Reading book. Pupils 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 History, pupils will be using skills of historical enquiry to investigate the period of the Stone Age to the Iron Age. Pupils will be able to make comparisons between different periods pf time, using the knowledge they already know from previous topics. In addition to this, pupils will use their historical knowledge to write accounts and fact files. Pupils will have the opportunity to develop their research skills to independently ask and answer their own questions.
