Here is the overview of learning for Year 3 for this year. Our guided reading lessons are planned to linke to the wider curriculum. English lessons are planned linked to a central texts covering a range of purposes for writing.  If you have any questions about any of the areas of learning, please contact your child's class teacher.

In English, we will be studying lots of interesting and exciting texts and producing writing that links to each book.

In science, this half term, we will be learning about plants.  We'll be learning about the functions of parts of plants and flowers. We will be learning about pollination and seed dispersal.

We will be conducting practical enquiries to investigate how plants grow and survive. We will also investigate how they transport water and make food..

In geography, we will be learning about the difference between weather and climate. We will be studying climate zones around the Earth. We will be finding out about the coldest, wettest and driest parts of the planet.

We will also be learning about Biomes. Biomes are areas of the planet with a similar climate and landscape, where similar animals and plants live. Some of the world's main biomes include rainforest, desert, savannah, grassland, woodland and tundra.


You can find out more about Biomes by clicking here to visit the BBC Bitesize website.


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.
