Year 3 - Marie Curie Class

Year 3 Autumn 1 Curriculum Information


In Autumn 1, we will be exploring many exciting new things.  We will be reading several new books including ‘The Wild Robot’, ‘The Street Beneath my Feet’, ‘Poems to perform’, ‘Stone Age Boy’ and many more.  As you can imagine from these titles these books are all about adventures! We are always trying to include our school values in everything we do.  This term we will be working in the classroom on self-belief, honesty, confidence, teamwork and more …  We will also be going on a trip!!!! An actual trip to a working farm. We will also be learning a lanuage for the first time, we are learing French!!!!


In the classroom we will be using these books to encourage the children with their story writing and designing and writing a holiday brochure.  We will also be talking about where we live in Geography this term . Our Big Question in Geography is: How can we find out our location?  In science our Big Questions is: How are rocks formed? We will be learning about different scientists and particularly what geologist do. In History we are finding out about The Stone Age, Iron Age and much more. Our Big Question in History is: How did society change from the Stone age to the Iron Age? This all sounds so exciting!!! Maybe you could visit the public library together to borrow a book on one of these topics?


We love numbers and one of our aims is to continue learning about place value, we will also be reinforcing our knowledge of addition and subtraction this term.  Can you ask your child simple questions about any of these titles ? Please use ttrockstars to encourage your child with their timestables.  They are set so the children can work on their 3s, 4s, and 10s timestable. 


In Art and Design Technology we aim to investigate the artis Paul Klee and Vincent Van Gogh. Our class is called ‘The Marie Curie’ class and we have researched and found information out about her. She was such a significant person in history, ask your child about her. In R.E this term we are learning about ‘What different people beliveve about God’. We will also be talking about our school enviroment and the the care we show each other PSHCE. 


We have so much more planned for this half term which we look forward to sharing with you all on class Dojo.  Please keep looking on our class Dojo page for regular updates and information.  (P.E is still on Wednesday afternoon and Spelling books need to be in on Mondays each week).
