We hope that you have had a lovely Christmas and have spent some quality time with your loved ones making magical memories! In Year 3 we are really getting back into the swing of things this January and we have lots of exciting things to look forward to this term!

Creating and programming our own games with the help of Gary from the Knowsley City Learning Centre.



Exciting activities linked to Chinese New Year – the children are very excited to learn all about the year of the pig!


Spring Term

What exciting things will we be learning about?

Come and See – In Come and See this half term we are going to learn about Journeys and we will begin to cover Listening and Sharing.

Maths – This term we will be continuing to develop our addition and subtraction skills, moving swiftly onto multiplication and division! Times tables – We are revising our 2’s, 4’s and 10’s at the moment! We should already be confident in these multiplication and division facts so get practising children J

English – This week we have begun exploring our new core text – The Tin Forest. The children are so excited to see how the story progresses!

Science – Currently we are busy finishing our topic on Soils and Rocks so we can move straight on to learning about plants which will link very nicely with our core text – The Tin Forest.

Learning Journey – This half term we are going to be considering the effects of deforestation on our beautiful world through Geography. We are going to create some art based on the different layers of a forest and the animals which inhabit it and some exciting DT involving recycling old plastic bottles! If you have any plastic bottles we can have, please send them in! We will be very grateful!

Homework – Homework will be sent home on Fridays and due to be returned the following Friday. Maths homework will consist of a times table that the children will be tested on the following Friday! We will be times table champions.

Reading Books – Changed daily where possible.
