Year 3

Welcome to Year3!

Here, you will find out about all the learning that is taking place in Term 2.

Year 3’s final writing outcome is based around work on settings. Children were provided with the opportunities to explore different creative writing techniques. They were provided with mythical images of different settings which linked to our History topic, ‘Ancient Greeks’. Children were provided with activities which required the use of their five senses to describe what they were looking at and propositions which supported the development of their setting description.

Liyanna from Beech class, “We had different pictures of places and we used these to write about our settings.”

Anisha from Alder class, “We used expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials, powerful verbs and adverbs within our settings.”

                               An example of a writing outcome: setting description

In Maths, students explored the unit, Statistics.  They were able to draw, read and interpret statistical data and given representations including bar charts, pictograms and tables.  In order to interpret data, they were able to solve one-step and two-step problems using given information presented in bar charts, pictograms and tables.


In Science, children studied the topic ‘Animals including Humans’.  First, they were able to identify main food groups and then evaluated a buyer’s choice of food items.  Children explored what a balanced diet is, researched the nutritional values required to keep a person healthy and then created a healthy meal.  They understood the function of the skeleton and differentiated between vertebrates and invertebrates.
