Year 3

Staff: Mrs Henman, Mrs Paffett and Mrs Cameron

Please click on the items below to find out what Year 3 have been learning about in the Summer term…


This half term, Year 3 will be exploring place value, including revising our knowledge of ones, tens hundreds and thousands. We will also look at one more and less.

We are looking at gaps in knowledge due to COVID and making sure, they are addressed.

In each lesson, we will be developing our problem-solving and reasoning skills by discussing what we notice and how we can prove that our answer is correct. Are big question is can we see a pattern?


We are starting the half-term by studying the Stone and Iron Age. We have been wondering what it was like to me a child in those times.

We will then look at the book The Stone Age Boy, where we will focus on descriptive writing techniques, involving specific grammar, adjectives and expanded noun phrases.

We will continue to study a range of texts during our daily Guided Reading sessions and enjoy reading our own books in our Read for Pleasure session


Our topic for this half-term is the Stone and Iron Age
