Year 3

Welcome to Year 3's Homepage.

Our IPC topic this term is 'Footprints from the past' where we have been looking into the dinosaurs, covering a wide range of topics such as the extinction of the dinosaurs, how the dinosaurs evolved and their timeline, as well as how they became fossils and what we can learn from them. For our entry point we all came in dressed up as paleontologists and explorers and were able to dig up our own dinosaur fossils and study them. .

In English this half term our power of reading book is 'Dinosaurs and all that rubbish'. In English we shall be covering conjunctions, similes and metaphors, capital letters, full stops and a wide variety of other punctuation. We shall be applying these features into a wide range of writing such as newspapers, diary entries, letters and story writing. 

English board


In maths this half term we shall be taking a greater look into the 4 times table. We shall also closely be looking into place value and how to apply it to assist us in solving mathematical sums. We will also be comparing numbers, using addition and subtraction and number lines. 


In science we will be looking into different types of rocks, with the three main types being Igneous, Metamorphic and Sedimentary. With this knowledge we will be learning all about rock formation and the difference between these rock types and what different purposes they serve. Throughout the topic we will be looking closely at different types of rocks and experimenting with them in many different ways such as testing their durability and what different rocks are permeable or impermeable.
