Autumn 2 


In our Maths sessions we will be concentrating on calculations which include multiplication and division. Also we will be looking at further multiplication and Division.


During our English sessions we will be looking at recounts and writing our own biographies. We will also get to create some poems with a structure. After that we will be creating a discussion text based on the statement, ‘Should Fireworks Be Banned?’


Light and astronomy will be our topic during the next eight weeks of Science. We may also be lucky enough to get a visit from some astronomers!


We will be looking at and creating 3D sculptures during our art sessions and I cannot wait to see what wonderful things we make!


Christianity will be our focus during this half term. The key question is, ‘Who do we look up to?’


We will be looking at ‘valuing difference’ and how important this is during our PSHE sessions. We will be focusing on how families can be different and how our differences make us who we are.

Autumn 1

Here are our wonderful Year 3 class:

We have been so busy in our first three weeks of Year 3! Here are some of the things that we are going to be up to:

In Science, we are learning about forces and magnets. We are going to look at different movements and explore how different objects move.

We will then compare how objects move on different surfaces and have a think about some properties. We are going to be working like scientists!

In English, we are learning all about folk tales based around a story called The Tin Forest. We are creating some fantastic story maps and we are going to write our own innovated versions!

We will then look at Aesop’s Fables, specifically The Hare and The Tortoise.

Maths is No Problem!
We are looking at Number and Place Value up to 1000 and now we are moving onto Addition and Subtraction. We will then be looking at Multiplication and Division.

Using visual coding, we will be creating our very own Dancing Robot game.

Our topic is Greater Manchester and we have had lots of fun comparing it to Lancashire and specifically Bacup and Britannia. We are going to be looking at lots of different kinds of maps such as Digimaps and OS maps. 

When we have finished our Geography topic, we will be moving onto our Art topic of printing. We will be creating our very own prints of Manchester Bees! We are just organising a trip to do some printing with an artist!
