Year 3 Curriculum Overview

Summer Term Newsletter

Year 3


This term the children are starting a new topic on North America. The focus of this topic will be looking at a chronological timeline, human and physical geography, traditional folk tales, map skills, weather and climate and lots more!


In reading this term, we are reading a book by Hannah Moffatt called 'Small'. The main character, Harvey, is a small boy in a giant world and he lives on stilts. He has been such a naughty boy, that he has been kicked out of all his previous schools, so his Mum decides to send him to giant school where he is faced with the school inspectors and Madame Bogbrush. 

We will be looking at each chapter closely focusing on different reading skills, such as, prediction, retrieval, inference, vocabulary and summary. 


In English this term our focus will be on traditional tales, playscripts and poetry. We start off the term by reading our model text, 'Jack and the Beanstalk' where we will learn the story through a story map and actions. Year 3 will then share their ideas to write a class version of the tale and by the end of the unit they will be writing their very own traditional tale. 


In Maths we are are continuing our learning of fractions with a focus on adding and subtracting. We will also be looking at money, time, shape and statistics. 


Our Science topic this term is 'Animals including humans' and our focus for this will be learning how a skeleton supports us, how our muscles help us to move and looking closely at a healthy balanced diet.

British Science Week: 'Climate Action' Our first lesson started off with some fantastic discussions about what we do to help the environment and what we could do more of. We spoke about reducing, reusing and recycling certain items and how we could cut down our use of plastic. Miss King set the children a homework task over the weekend to see how many children could get their parents to recycle or to go out on a walk and do some litter picking. Year 3 took the task seriously and I have been inundated with some fantastic pictures of their weekends. To end the unit on 'Climate Action' the children participated in some drama. They had to write a news report based on what we could do to help save the planet. Each group had something different to focus on: landfill, pollution, compost and the 3 R's. The children then performed their reports to the class.
