Year 3 Spellings
Term 3 is a geography focused term and Year 3 pupils will be learning all about France. We will be listening to traditional French music as well as learning about the climate, culture and history of one of our closest international neighbours.

As part of the whole school topic work we will be celebrating International Day on Thursday 13th February with a special after-school buffet for all. We hope you can join us!
Throughout Term 3 the children will be reading some fantastic stories from authors such as Anne Fine and David Almond. The children will continue with a daily 30 minute guided reading session and spellings will continue to be tested every Thursday. A copy of their scores can be found in the classroom. Please keep up the reading and spellings at home!
In our Maths lessons we shall continue working with addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. We will also be exploring fractions, money, measurements (including time) and place value. As we continue working with larger numbers we will also be developing our problem solving and reasoning skills by using advanced mathematical language.
We are really looking forward to this term and will be covering a wide range of topics. In Maths the children will be revising the four operations, learning to recall all multiplication and division facts and applying their knowledge of number facts to solve problems. In English we will be reading the story The Mousehole Cat by Antonia Barber. We will be exploring rocks and fossils as part of our Science topic work. In class, we will be investigating the properties and purposes of different rocks and soils. We will also learn how to plan and conduct a fair test for geological investigations. As well as studying rocks, we will be learning lots of fascinating facts about fossils. Do you know how fossils are formed? Check out these websites below to do some research of your own:

In English we will be starting the year with the story Gregory Cool by Caroline Binch. We will be exploring the Roman Empire as part of our History topic work. In class, we will be investigating how the Romans lived their lives and the invasion of Britain. We will also create our own Roman shields and see how effective they were in battle. Did you know that at one time, the Romans ruled over most of Europe and part of Africa?
