Our Class Stories for this half term are...

Here is the overview of learning for Year 3 for this year:

You can find out about some of our main topics this half term below. Don't forget, some really useful tools that you can use at home are Google Earth and the DK Findout website - you can find out lots about all of our topics there. Click on the links below:

In science, we will be learning about animals including humans. We will be mainly focusing on the skeletons of different animals - as well as our own. We will be finding out about the functions of the skeleton and muscles and in science and PSHE we will be finding out how to keep our body and skeleton healthy. In DT we will be creating sandwiches as part of a balanced diet.

Can you work out which animals these skeletons belong to? Where do you think they live? Are they carnivores or herbivores. Are there any clues? Do you know the difference between invertebrates and vertebrates? What about an endoskeleton or an exoskeleton?

In geography, we will be studying the topography of the United Kingdom. We will be looking at mountains in the UK and around the world and studying the rivers of the UK - from source to mouth. We will also be revising some of the key settlements around the country and checking that we have remembered the locational knowledge from last term.


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 Tuesday, Wednesday 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.

Indoor Kit = plain white t-shirt, shorts and suitable shoes (pumps or trainers)

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.

Useful Websites:

This is a new website introduced just before half term. This is a fun and competitive way for your child to learn their times tables. Look out for new competitions and challenges! Children's log in details are in their organisers.
