Year 3

British Values Project 

Throughout the year, Year 3 have taken part in the British Values Project. They have been learning all about our British Values through music, drama and dance. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to preform our drama and dance pieces to an audience. Luckily, we were able to record the pieces for you to watch. We hope you enjoy watching them!

We are currently reading: 

Fantastic Mr Fox

The Stone Age Boy 

How Far Would I Go? (E-book available on Active Learn)



During the Spring term, we have continued to explore a range of  stories and genres, helping us to create a variety of writing. We used out E-book, 'How Far Would I Go..." to explore and research shocking styles, though out the years. We used this to begin writing newspaper reports. We have read the books, 'Fantastic Mr Fox' and 'The Stone Age Boy', which helped us to create stories, letters, newspaper reports and recounts. We are currently focusing of poetry and beginning to write our own riddle poems. 


Learning at home

You can use Purple Mash to write your own newspaper reports, recounts, letters and stories all about what you have been doing at home. You could also create your own riddle poems and see if people can guess the noun you are describing.



We are currently learning: 

Place value of 3-digit numbers
Adding and subtracting 2/3-digit numbers (Column method)
Shape and measures
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10 times tables

Maths - Learning at home

All children have access to TTRockstars, will help them to learn their times tables. Children will also be able to play a range of mathematic games on Active Learn, which will be based around the learning in class. Daily practise, telling the time, on both analogue and digital clocks, will help children with this tricky concept.  


We are currently learning about: 

Rocks and Soils

Feeding and Movement


During Spring term, we have become Earth scientists/Geologists, studying Rocks and soils, We have classified real rocks according to their properties. We investigated fossils and different types of rock formations. 

We are currently studying the topic, Feeding and Movement. We have been learning all about what nutrients our bodies need to be healthy and the importance of the different food groups. 


Science learning at home - childrens' ideas

We could keep a diary of the food we eat during the day and make suggestions on how to improve our diets. We could also use the Eat Well Plate to plan different meals which include the right amount of the different food groups. We could write up the recipes on how to make our meals and bring them into school to share with the other children/share with our family.


We are currently learning about:

The Stone Age


Our topic this term is 'The  Stone Age'. We learnt lots of interesting facts and looked, in detail, at the significant changes made to the lifestyles of humans, throughout this time period. We have studied a range of Stone Age artifacts and discussed what they have been used for. We are beginning to start looking at the Bronze age and how life was different to the Stone Age.


History - learning at home

Questions for us to try and research, to help continue our learning in this area are:


Is bronze better than stone?

How is iron made? What was it used for?

What was the impact of bronze and iron tools on the way people in Britain lived? Did it make farming easier?

Did it make life more secure? Did it make life safer?


Children could use Purple Mash to create a fact file/information leaflet/poster etc to present to the children in school with their findings. 


We are currently active in:

Diamond Cricket



During the Spring term, we have been focusing on our striking and fielding skills through Diamond Cricket. We have started to learn the skills needed to play tennis. We also complete the Oakfield Mile every day. 


We are currently learning:

 ' How important is sharing to Sikhs?' 


We are beginning to explore how Sikh beliefs affect their ways of life, and the importance they place on sharing.



We are currently learning:
British Values

During the Spring term, we have been working alongside The British Values Project, to create a drama performance about our British Values. We have focused on the Suffragette Movement and Shakespeare's Macbeth.


Our current topic is:

We are communicators 


We have been using 2Email on Purple Mash to send emails to children within our year group. We have started to learn how to write formal emails and add attachments to our emails. 


Learning at home in computing

Children can continue to use 2Email to send emails to their classmates. They can attach work they have produced on Purple Mash to show their friends. All emails sent via 2Email, will be checked and approved by Miss Downey and Miss Sutton, before they are sent to the recipient.
