Year 3

Week beginning: 23.11.20




In Maths this week,


This week we will continue our work on addition and subtraction, ultimately leading towards using the column method to add two 3 digit numbers. We will look at the relationship between addition and subtraction and also work on problems in context.


We will continue to work on counting forwards and backwards in 1s 2s 5s and 10s. 


We will be looking at ways to represent and interpret data in pictograms, bar charts and tables.

In English this week,


We are writing our final version of our character transformation tale in our Hot Task week. The children have planned their individual stories and will be writing independently to show their recently learnt skills. 


In IPC this week


We are continuing a new unit 'Saving the World' finding out about rain forests around the world. As Geographers we will explore where the rain forests are and what life is like for people who live there.  We will look at products we get from the rain forest and find out about Fair Trade.


As scientists we will look at plant and animal life in the rain forest. We will be learning about the parts of a plant, what plants need to live and grow and explore the role of flowers in the plant life cycle.


You can help your child... 


You can help your child by:

  • Reading regularly at home. It's good to ask them questions about what they've read too. Don't forget to write in their planner when they've read.
  • Helping them to learn their spellings each week
  • Supporting them to complete their learning log which is due in by Thursday
  • Practising their times tables. They can use the new Times Tables Rock Stars for this too. We also have a new game Numbots (with the same username and password as TT Rock Stars) to help them learn  number bonds.
