Welcome to Year 3!

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

'Were the Greeks the real superheroes?'


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 Atlatis the Lost City by Christina Balit as a stimulus for our writing. We will also look at a range of Greek myths and legends. 


In maths we will begin with multiplication and division, we will then and progress on to fractions and decimals. We will be practicing our times tables daily. 


In Science our topic for this half term will be Animals including Humans

Pupils will be taught to:

  • Generate questions and use scientific evidence that is given to answer questions.
  •  Set up an investigation and make predictions.
