Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Term 1: Tell Me A Dragon

This term, Year 3’s learning will focus on dragons and other mythical creatures. Inspired by ‘Tell Me A Dragon’, a wonderful picture book, the children will be imagining their own magical settings and dragons, writing dragon bedtime stories to perform and share. We will also be writing dragon poems and inventing mythical creatures in a non-chronological report.

Linked to our dragon topic, we will be reading ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ as our class novel. The children will have the chance to look at this book more closely in guided reading. We will also be investigating the lives of the Vikings in history, finding out whether the story is true to real life!

The children will develop their ICT skills, focusing on finding and presenting information to support their project learning. ICT will also be used in geography as we use digital mapping to investigate suitable dragon habitats. There will also be plenty of dragon-inspired music and artwork!

In maths, we will be focusing on securing place value, addition and subtraction. The children will be challenged to solve different problems applying their new skills. We will also have regular times tables practise through games and challenges.

PE will be on Monday afternoons, so remember to make sure your child comes to school in their PE kit on this day.

It would be a huge benefit to your child if you can read at home at least 3 times a week. There will be weekly certificates for children achieving this challenge.

This term, we will be working on Writing and Maths targets linked to our School Priorities:

  • Making our handwriting more consistent.
  • Spelling homophones.
  • Counting from 0 in multiples of 4 and 8.

Please come and see me if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s learning.
