Welcome to the Year Three webpage
Our Year Three classes are:

Welcome back after the Easter break! Miss Ranson is excited to be joining us in Shakespeare Class.
Our topic for this term is 'Home and Away' where we will be comparing Hastings and Naples in Italy. We have started our new book in English 'The Iron Man' and in Maths we are finishing our Fractions work then moving onto time. In Science we are looking at Plants. We have already enjoyed a plant hunt on the school field.
We hope you are all having fun in the snow! Stay safe :)
Daisy is enjoying the snow and having a change from hearing you read! Hopefully she will be back next week.
Our topic is Art Attack
During this term the children will have the opportunity to explore observational drawing, sculpture and paint in monochrome. In Science we will be 'working scientifically' through the children setting up experiments and investigating. In English we are reading our new book One Plastic Bag by Miranda Paul and in Maths we are measuring perimeter and then starting fractions.
Our topic is Animal Planet
During this term we will be exploring animals and their habitats. In Science we will be discovering why we need a variety of nutrients and comparing animal skeletons.

Last term was very busy and now that we are in term 2 we are already looking forward to Christmas. It was lovely to see so many parents at the recent parents evenings, thank you so much for coming. It was a great to have the opportunity to discuss how your children have settled in, and to share all the fantastic work they have completed so far.
We are looking forward to another busy, but fun filled term. In English we are exploring the book Gregory Cool by Caroline Binch. We started the book last week and have already completed some fantastic work including a vocabulary building activity called 'role on the wall'. Together we gathered some rich and varied vocabulary which the children have already been using in other lessons which is great!

In Science we have begun our work on Forces and Magnets, the children are enjoying it enormously.
We hope you had a fantastic summer and are looking forward to the new year. Year 3 is an exciting year for your children’s development as they embark on their junior school experience.
We have had a great start to the year, looking at 2 very different books in English - Quest and UG. In Maths we have had lots of fun using resources to help us with our place value. The children have produced some fantastic art work which is up on display. We can't believe how quickly the first month has gone!

Term 1 and 2 Topic
For the first two terms our topic is ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’. This encompasses the Stone Age, the Celts, and the Roman impact on Britain. We are very fortunate to have two Roman villas in the local area at Lullingstone and Crofton (Orpington) that children could visit to support their learning in school.
