Miss O'Dowd, Mr Nicholls, Miss Morris, Mrs Lemon and Miss Hadley would like to welcome you to our Year 3 year group page. We hope you find this a useful place to visit to gain any important information; find educational links and to have a peek at the wonderful things that are happening in Year 3!

So far, in maths we have been looking at the eight points on a compass as well as learning all about the term 'angles'. The angles that we have focused on are: right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles.The children have enjoyed participating in finding angles within a shape. In order to do this accurately, the children have been using a right angle checker. 


This term we will also be focusing on; 


Properties of shape: In the unit, the children will draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them. They will also recognise angles as a property of a shape or a description of a turn.


Statistics: The children will learn to interpret and present data using bar charts and pictograms.


Place value: In this unit, we will be revisiting the place value of each digit in a 3-digit number (100s, 10s, 1s). We will also be finding more or less than a given number.


Calculating using the 4 Operations: The children will continue to refine written methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will be applying their knowledge of the 4 operations to solve mathematical challenges and real life concepts.

Our next exciting topic is called ‘Forces of Nature’! We will be defining what a force of nature is and where they occur in the world. We will be paying particular attention to the causes and impacts of storms, volcanoes and earthquakes. The children will also be learning about biomes and vegetation belts and undertaking fieldwork in the local area.

Spellings are important in Year 3! Below we have attached the Year 1/2 Common Exception Words as well as the 3/4 Common Exception Words that can be practised throughout the Year! The Year 3/4 Common Exception Words are words that the children should be able to spell by the end of Year 4. 


We have also attached the spellings for Group 1 and Group 2 that we will be testing the children on every Friday!


Top Tip: When we test these spellings in school we put these words into sentences which you may want to try at home!
