Autumn Two


In writing, we will be taken on an incredible adventure when reading our new class text, 'Where My Wellies Take Me'. We will be taken on a journey through the use of extensive description and intertwined poetry. We will focus on our poetry skills 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 magnets and forces through investigations and experiments. We will look in depth at what magnets are, how they were discovered and why they are important. We will also look at different types of forces, linking to life beyond the earth's atmousphere.



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


Religious Education

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 mystery dance.



Inspired by Chilhuly, we will be creating our own pottery using clay. During this process, the children will investigate the colour wheel, form and hue. We will be focusing on intricacy and detailing during this topic. 



We will be kick starting Geography in Year Three by exploring the world around us. We will be recapping the seven continents and learning about the equator, the tropics and the hemisphere. Following from this, we will further out geographical knowledge by learning about landscapes, including the water cycle!
