Welcome to Year 3! Year 3 is a very exciting year in which the children grow their independence as Juniors through in-class learning and at home. We have lots of interesting topics that we will be looking at this year, including The Railways, the Stone Age, Shakespeare, plus Black History Month and Global Goals.

Please remember to sign your child’s reading record at least three times a week to show that they are reading at home.

Autumn 1

This first half term we will be learning about The Railways, particularly around us in Camden. We will be learning about the history of the railways all over the country and how it affected the people in our local area. We will be reading the book, The Secret of Platform 13 by Eva Ibbotson, and thinking about how we could write our own stories using the setting of a train station.

In Maths, we will revise what we learnt in KS1 about place value and build on this with 3-digit numbers. We will learn how to represent 3-digit numbers in many different ways, and how to partition, order and compare them. We will also practice our mental and written skills in rounding, addition, subtraction with up to 3-digit numbers, and will be building on our knowledge of multiplication.

In Science, we will be focusing on Magnets and Forces. We will be comparing this to what we are learning about trains, and we will also learn about other uses for Magnets in the world.

In Art, we will be creating collages with Miss Perriton looking at the work of Hannah Hoch and the Dada movement.

In RE, we will be learning all about Buddhism, the stories and questions about life. We will be reflecting on how we can learn from these values.
