Year 3


This week we have been learning...



We have been using column method to add and subtract amounts of money. We set up our own shops to learn how to calculate change.

Help at home by setting up your own shops and playing 'shop keeper'!


This week we have been exploring writing our own poems in the style of Brenda Williams. The children have really enjoyed learning this poem and exploring our local area with their senses. 

Help at home by thinking of different ways to describe what you are sensing.


Wider Curriculum

We have planned and built our own magnetic fair ground rides! Look at the class pages to explore the rides we have created.

Help at home by watching some of the video links on the Year Three webpage!


Don’t forget to keep up with your termly topic homework!
