What year 3 are up to this term


Miss Thompson

TA – Mrs Motlagh


Miss Deadman



We will be continuing to use our Power of Reading book, The Iron Man by Ted Hughes, as our focus in our writing and reading. We will be focusing on these skills in English:

  • Writing our own myth/ legend during Book Week.
  • Producing our own formal letter from the people of Australia asking the other nations for help from the dragon.
  • Writing a science fiction narrative opening including the science fiction characters we created last term.

Throughout the year there will be great emphasis on grammar, spelling, punctuation and reading. It would be wonderful if you could support your child at home in these areas.

Foundation Subjects

We will also be covering these topics in our other learning:

In History we are learning about the Stone Age and Iron Age, specifically understanding what life was like and how it changed over time.

In Music, we are exploring structure and pitch in musical compositions.

Tennis and Netball in PE.


We will be focusing on embedding our knowledge of multiplication, division, telling the time and improving our mental arithmetic skills. In particular, we will be learning about:

  • Adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator. Recognising and showing equivalent fractions with small denominators. Comparing and ordering fractions with the same denominator.
  • Interpreting and presenting data using bar charts, pictograms and tables.
  • Solving one-step and two-step questions using information presented in scaled bar charts, pictograms and tables.


Our RE topic in term 4 is all about Celebrating the Mass, which will include:

  • Knowing what happened at the Last Supper and reflecting on how the mass makes this real for us.
  • Understanding the importance of the readings at mass as this is how we listen to God’s word.
  • Knowing that it is Jesus we receive in Holy Communion and reflect on this very great gift.


Our topic for term 4 is Forces and Magnets. Specifically, we will be learning about:

  • How some forces need contact between 2 objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance.
  • How magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others.
  • How magnets have two poles and identifying magnetic materials.
