Year 3

Week beginning: 05.07.21




In Maths this week,


This week, we will be learning about time. This includes knowing how many months in a year, days in a month, minutes in an hour and so on. It is also about telling the time from digital and analogue clocks and knowing how to change between 12 and 24 hour clocks. We will learn how to calculate the duration of events.


In English this week,


We are working on a  unit about poetry and will work on poetic language and features.


In IPC this week


We are continuing the new unit called Scavengers and settlers.  We will be learning about Stone, Bronze and Iron Age Britain and how people lived during those periods. We will look at the changes over the course of the time periods and compare the way people lived then to our modern day lives. 


We will focus on how this era fits in to HIstory by creating a time line of events from the Stone Age to the modern day.


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.
