Year 3 2019 - 2020

Miss Gordon

Welcome to Year 3!

During the Summer term we will be focusing our learning on our topic question; 

What Makes Knutsford A Great Place to Live?


In English we will work in line with the new Primary Framework for Year 3 with a focus on children planning, drafting and editing their writing. We will be using Where Will My Wellies take Me? By Michael and Clare Morpurgo as a stimulus for our writing. We will also be reading the Iron Man as a class read. 


In maths we will begin our summer term with measurement, focusing particularly on time. We will:

  • Tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks. 
  •  Estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute. 
  •  Know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year.

We will then move onto Geometry and look at the properties of shape.

We will finish our summer term off with mass and capacity. 

We will be practicing our times tables daily. 


In Science our topic for this term will be Electricity. 

Pupils will be taught to:

  • Generate questions and use scientific evidence that is given to answer questions.
  •  Set up an investigation and make predictions.
  •  Make observations and conclusions.
  • Be able to answer questions based on their learning.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday, but children should have PE kit in school every day. Please check that all PE kit is clearly labelled. 


Every Friday the children will go home with spellings and English homework to be handed in the following Wednesday.  There will also be online Mathematics homework for the children to complete. 

Spelling will be tested on Wednesdays.


Keep up the amazing work year 3, you continue impressing me every day!laughyes
