Termly Learning Focus

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

We hope you have had a restful summer and are ready to start Year 3! We have many exciting things planned for this year and we can’t wait to get to know you all. Our first writing unit is based on the book ‘The incredible book eating boy’ by Oliver Jeffers. We will be retelling the story to write our own narrative.  In Maths, we will begin the year with Place Value. In Science, we will be looking at Animals including Humans which will build upon their year 2 knowledge.

Across the curriculum we will be looking at the Stone Age in History. In outdoor PE will be starting Outdoor adventures and Indoor PE we will be doing Boot camp activities. In Design and Technology, we will be making Bridges.  We will be learning lots of new things this term!

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:




Art/Design Technology



Animals including Humans

History- The Stone Age

Structures and mechanisms: We’ll cross that bridge

Digital devices

Bootcamp (Indoor)

Outdoor adventures (Outdoor)

How can you help with your child’s learning in school and at home?

It would be helpful for the children to consolidate their learning in maths, with a focus on telling the time and recognising and using money. Could they work out the change they should get when they go to buy a packet of sweets? What time does the clock say when they get up at the weekend?

Words that will be taught this term:

(Please use these when you are out and about with your child – the more they hear them, the more they stick!)
