Class Curriculum

Spring Term 1   2021
Welcome to Year 3

Welcome back Year 3 to 2021. I hope you have had a lovely and safe Christmas with your family.

We will be starting our new Cornerstones project, ‘Predators’ where we will learn all about predatory animals, plants, food chains, habitats and learn the key parts and functions of animals and plants.

Our class novel this half term is Sheep Pig, the tale of an orphaned piglet (Babe) who  is adopted by Fly, the kind-hearted sheep-dog. Babe is determined to learn everything he can from Fly. He knows he can’t be a sheep-dog. But maybe, just maybe, he might be a sheep-pig.

Reading continues to be an important part of the day. Please ensure that your child reads at home daily and that this is recorded in their reading record. Your child’s reading book and reading record need to be sent into school daily to enable us to read at school, change books and monitor your child’s reading progress.

As writers we will be studying the story ‘Nail Soup’ to help develop our use of characterisation and dialogue in stories.

As mathematicians we will further our understanding of multiplication and division (multiplying by a 2 digit number), using these skills in problem solving involving length, mass and volume.

All PE will be taught outside. Due to unpredictable weather please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school every day.

Remember to check the Home Learning section every Friday to practice your spellings and maths facts for your tests the following week.

Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances interactions with staff will be limited. If you have any questions, queries or photos that you would like to share please email me at
