Welcome to Year Three. We have an exciting year ahead!

 

This term we will be covering a number of subjects. In science, we will be learning about 'Forces and Magnets' and later in the term we will be exploring 'Light'.

 

Our history topic will be Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age Britain. We will find out many interesting facts and will compare the differences between these periods and modern day Britain.

 

In English, we will be writing stories with familiar settings, focusing in 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne.  In the second half of the term we will be writing non-chronological reports based on animals.

 

In maths we will be learning about number facts and place value which will lead us onto addition and subtraction later in the term.

 

The children will continue their weekly swimming lessons at the Laura Trott Sports Centre for the whole of this term.  This will be in addition to their usual P.E sessions in school.

 

We are sure the children will settle quickly into Year 3 and enjoy the many new experiences the Juniors will offer.
