Year Three


In Maths this term we will be focusing on numbers. We will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction, and multiplication and division.

You can help: Practice times tables at home.


This term we are looking forward to learning all about the Stone Age! During our topic about the Stone Age, we will be focussing on lots of fantastic texts such as ‘Stone Age Boy’. We will be learning to write a variety of different genres including a narrative.

You can help: We will be doing a lot of work in Guided Reading on inference (understanding feelings) You can help by asking lots of questions about how a character might be feeling in the book your child has read and encouraging them to explain their answers using evidence from the text.


This term we are learning all about The UK and Stone Age to Iron Age. We will be comparing the differences between these periods of time. We will learn why early humans did not originally settle in the United Kingdom, how they managed to hunt and gather food, and what important artefacts were left behind. We will finally compare life in the Stone Age to life nowadays and decide which period of time we would rather have lived in and why.

We will also be studying Animals including humans – looking at a healthy balanced diet and skeletons.

You can help: Please compete at least 4 homework grid tasks.

PE days – Thursday and Friday

ALL children will require a full PE Kit (white top, black shorts/jogging bottoms and black pumps/trainers). Earrings/jewellery must not be worn and long hair should also be tied back. PE for Year 3 is on Thursday and Friday afternoons and kits must be brought each week.


Homework will continue to be given out every Monday to be completed and handed in by Friday. Logins for any websites, such as TTRS will be stuck in the back of the children’s home/school diaries. When they bring their homework in on a Friday their name gets put into a draw and one lucky winner wins a prize. Alongside the weekly homework we also look forward to seeing the tasks pupils complete from their Homework Grid. Pupils choose at least 4 of the tasks to complete over the term, and they are a great opportunity to show creativity and independent learning. Please listen to your child read a minimum of four times a week and record this in the home school diary. Reading books and home/school diaries should be brought into school every day. Pupils who read regularly at home will be considered for the weekly Reading Award and will get a certificate in assembly to celebrate.
