Year 3 Book Character

We have had such a great Autumn term..Year 3 have learnt and achieved sooo much. I am looking forward to the Spring term!

What we are learning this Year/Term


Our class book this half term will be Ice Palace. It is an interesting book about a young boy who goes on an adventure to find his little brother. We will use this text for a range of purposes. Children will be exploring instruction texts and writing instructions on playground games. They will write letters of advise and diary entries. To finish the unit we will be exploring non-fiction texts and writing a non-chronological report on ‘Winter Safety’.


We will be looking at Mass and Volume in Maths. We will learn to read and write measurements, convert them and solve word problems using the four operations. After that unit we will begin looking at money.


We will be exploring magnets and forces in Science. We will look at the types of surfaces and how objects move. We will then explore magnets and which metals are magnetic.


Children will be coding using scratch software this half term. We will build on our coding skills and explore block-based programming further.


P.E. will be every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E. Kit and  suitable footwear.


This half term we will focus on our goals and aspirations.  We will discuss safety around substances and how to stay healthy.


We will be exploring sculpture and modelling. We will use clay and ceramics to create our own fruit bowls.   


Our History topic this term will be Ancient Egypt. We will explore what life was like in Ancient Egypt and compare it to life in Egypt today. We will be exploring real artefacts, learning about Pharaohs and pyramids. We will be visiting the famous Tutankhamun exhibition in Saatchi gallery linking to this unit.
