Our theme for the Summer Term is 'The World Around Us'.


In Geography we will be developing our understanding of maps, learning about keys and how to create a map of the local area. In addition, we will be learning about physical and human features.  In Science this term we will be learning about plants and what each part of the plant does. We will also explore the requirements of plants for life and will be carrying out lots of experiments to prove this.

In Art we will be exploring the medium of sculpture and creating a sculpture of flowers by the end of the unit.



In English we will be focusing on the book- The Pirates Next Door by Jonny Duddle and The Jolly Rogers and the Ghostly Galleon.

Through this book we will learn continue to learn how to write noun phrases, adverbial phrases and subordinate clauses to enhance our sentence writing.

 We will learn how to perfect our paragraph, learning how to compose a good paragraph and to make our paragraphs flow.                                                  

In year 3, we will have a strong focus on handwriting and spelling.  A list of year 3 words that the children need to learn to spell can be found at the bottom of the page in 'Files to download'.

Times tables:

As children are required to know their multiplication tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4, a key area of focus is to develop our multiplication tables knowledge and become times table superstars! Strong multiplication table knowledge is crucial in many areas of maths and children should be able to recall these quickly and confidently. On top of your child's weekly mathematics homework, children should spend some time each week practising their times tables. Please enjoy exploring the times table activities below:
