Year 3


Topics covered in Year 3 Summer Term 2017



Using a range of texts selected from Cornerstone's Writing Comprehension books, Read Write Inc and Writer's World, the children will work on letter writing, poetry, non-fiction texts, dialogue and plays, as well as modern stories and legends.  Children will write for a variety of audiences and will be encouraged to read and discuss different texts in whole class and small group settings.

Would you please continue to ensure your child reads a wide variety of good quality literature as this helps with their creative writing skills.



The children will cover a variety of topics for the required Curriculum in Year Three. Children will work on addition and subtraction sums crossing the tens boundary, multiplication, division, fractions, weight, money and 2D/3D shapes and creating/interpreting bar graphs. The children should also learn their 6, 7 and 8 times tables.



This term we will be looking at ‘Magnets and Forces’. During these topics the children will continue to develop their skills in planning and carrying out fair testing, predicting results, recording results and drawing conclusions.   We will also be taking a trip on the Beauchamp’s Floating Classroom.


The children will be exploring life in Britain during ‘The Iron Age’.



We will be looking at different places of worship in different religions. Children will be encouraged to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences in class discussions.



We are following the theme of ‘Relationships’ and ‘Changing Me’.



We will be doing two sessions each week until half term. One of these sessions will be attending swimming lessons at Willesden Sports Centre on Tuesday mornings and athletics on Thursday mornings with the professional Sports Coach.



We will be working on emailing and video conferencing within school and collecting and analysing data opinion polls.



This term we will be making our own bread and sandwiches/snacks.



In Art and Design we will be investigating ‘Can we Change Places?



We will be continuing with the Recorder project and preparing for a concert in June.



We will revise numbers to 30, days of the week and will introduce the months so that the children are able to give the date in French. We will be looking at the world’s countries, their names and languages, in particular those where French is spoken.



  • Swimming on Tuesday and P.E. on Thursday.
  • Homework will be given out on Mon/Tues and returned the next Monday.
  • Reading books MUST be brought to school everyday.
  • Spelling/times table tests every Thursday.


Thank you for your support and co-operation.
