Year 3 Teacher/Deputy Headteacher

Mrs Wilde

HLTA

Welcome to 3P

3P is taught by Mrs Paterfield and Mrs Wilde, our HLTA, takes the class on Tuesdays

Please use our class page to find out about what we are learning and doing during the year.  More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the 'Curriculum Plan' which can be found in 'Files to download' lower down the class homepage.

Our theme for Autumn Term is 'Ancient Egypt'.

                                                                    

In History we will be learning all about Ancient Egypt, how the people lived, Egyptian Gods, Pharaohs and investigating artifacts from this time.  In music we will be listening to modern and ancient Egyptian music and learning about the instruments that they played.  In Art we will be developing the skill of press printing and creating our own names in hieroglyphics. In Science we will be learning all about our bones and the human skeleton.

 

English

This half term we will  focus on the book 'The Magic Faraway Tree' by Enid Byton

 

               

                                                     

                                          

This is a fantastic book with lots of lovely writing opportunities that will stimulate the children's imagination.  Through the stories we will be able to extend the children's ability to use adjectives, verbs and adverbs to improve their descriptive writing. We will be writing instructions, letters and a new chapter to the story.

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'.                     

                                                    

                                             

Mathematics

In maths the children will develop their ability and knowledge in the following concepts.  Through a mastery style of teaching the children will develop their fluency in these areas as well as an ability to reason and problem solve using this knowledge.

The children will learn:  

  • To partition 100 into 50's, 20's 25's and to count in these steps to 100.
  • The value of each digit in a 3 digit number.
  • To partition a 3 digit number into 100's, 10's and ones.
  • To use knowledge of place value to add/subtract 1, 10 or 100 from a 3 digit number.
  • To compare 3 digit numbers using language such as smaller/greater/ more/less.
  • To be able to partition 100 in a variety of ways.
  • To add/subtract from a 3 digit number mentally.

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:
