Special event with author Michelle Harrison! 

On Tuesday 20th October, we all had the opportunity to meet Michelle Harrison, author of Midnight Magic. She talked about how she gets her inspiration to write books, gave us tips on how to become a writer and even answered some of the children’s questions. We had already read the first chapter of the book and can’t wait to read the rest!

The Rainforest 

In Geography, we have been learning about the Amazon Rainforest. First, we used atlases to label maps with the Equator, the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. Then we used the atlases to locate where rainforests are found in the world and added these to our map. We are now busy being reporters and writing a non-chronological report about the four layers of a rainforest. Can you name the four layers? Do you know what animals live in each layer?

World Mental Health Day- Be Positive!

In PSHE , Year 3 were celebrating and promoting being positive for World Mental Health Day. We discussed that being positive is very important for our mental health.  We explored the advantages of spreading positivity for ourselves and others and wrote a positive note about our partner. We then placed all our stars into a jar to create our very own class positivity jar.

Year 3 Planning

Below are Long, Medium Term Plans and Parental Overviews which are followed closely by class teachers. Skills and Knowledge for each subject have been planned carefully by subject leaders for progression across the school.

We are constantly improving the curriculum to match the needs of the children in each year group so some plans may be subject to change.
