Our Class Story for this half term is...

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 rocks and soils. As scientists, we will be finding out about different types of rocks and soils and where they came from. We'll be thinking about how we use rocks and soils and how we can use them to find out about the past. 

In geography, we will be studying th British Isles and the United Kingdom - and understanding the difference! We wil find out about different parts of the UK and key features like settlements, mountains and rivers. We will look at capital cities and find out about some important landmarks. We will also be comparing our local area to the Peak District - a different part of the UK.


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 Monday and Wednesday. 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.
