Autumn Two


In writing, we will be taken on an incredible adventure when reading our new class text, 'The Building Boy'. What is the boy building and where will we go in this gripping journey? We will focus on fronted adverbials and direct speech - skills which we will perfect throughout the year.



Put on your coats… if you dare! Year Three will be learning how to summarise, use a dictionary and use inference skills through, 'Beware the Killer Coat'. 



During this half term, children will be mastering addition and subtraction and begin investigating the x3, x4 and x8 multiplication tables pictorially. Children are encouraged to spend at least 5 minutes every day on Times Tables Rock Stars to boost their multiplication knowledge - you can do it!



In science we will be investigating and understanding the roles of our skeletons, muscles and organs through investigations and experiments. We will look in depth at different organs of the body through a dissection practical.



In computing children will continue to build on their knowledge of algorithms and apply this to coding sequences.


Religious Education

This half term children will be learning about different world religions' festivals of light including 'Christingle' within the Christian faith. Please join us for our Christingle service coming up nearer to Christmas.



Year Three have already had a fantastic half term of swimming and we will continue swimming every Wednesday at Walton High School. In addition, Year Three will work on creating their own machine-inspired dance.



Inspired by the sculptor Ron Tatro, Year Three will be experimenting with the use of complimentary colours, 2D and 3D shapes and wire to create abstract and contrasting sculptures. Year Three are looking forward to displaying their creations in the art exhibit.


Mini Adventures

Year Three will grab their passports, pass security checks and land in Ancient Egypt! In an Ancient Egypt day, we will be sampling ancient food, build pyramids, decode hieroglyphics and much more. During this topic we will discover how Ancient Egyptians lived, the process of mummification, the different Gods and how artefacts help us to paint a picture of the past.
