Year 3

WELCOME TO

 YEAR 3!

 

This term our topic is about the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. All of our learning will be focused around this period of time and stem from our key question, 'Is change always positive?' Alongside this, we have six concepts to explore: Happiness, Choice, Freedom, Sustainability, Creativity and Community

 

English

Our English learning this term will be focused on the book 'Stone Age Boy'. If you have a copy of this book at home, it would be useful for your child to bring this into school with them. By the end of the term, our aim is for the children to publish their own Stone Age themed story.

 

Maths

In Maths this term we will be covering the following blocks of learning:

 

Number – Addition and Subtraction

 

  • Add and subtract numbers mentally, including: a three-digit number and ones; a three-digit number and tens; a three digit number and hundreds.

 

  • Add and subtract numbers with up to three digits, using formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction.

 

  • Estimate the answer to a calculation and use inverse operations to check answers.

 

Solve problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value, and more complex addition and subtraction.

Number – Multiplication and Division

 

  • Count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100

 

Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables.

  • Write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables they know, including for two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods.

 

  • Solve problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division, including positive integer scaling problems and correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objectives

 

Science

Our science topic for Autumn is Light. Below are the objectives we will cover:

  • notice that light is reflected from surfaces
  • recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect their eyes
  • recognise that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by a solid object
  • Find patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.
