‘Together We Strive For Excellence’

Year 3

Year 3 Team - Miss Edmunds, Miss Adams, Mrs Clifft and Miss Mills.

This Half Term


English and Reading

Our key text that we will be focusing on this term is 'The Great Chocoplot' by Chris Callaghan. .


This book will be inspiring our writing within our English lessons and we shall also be picking the text apart in our reading lessons (RAID). In our reading lessons, we will be discussing the different comprehension components and also discussing the impacts that the story has on us as the reader.



Our History topic is based around the Anglo-Saxons; looking at what life was like during the time and key artefacts. We will be learning about the housing in the Anglo-Saxon era, the access and delivery of education during this time and also the Bayeux Tapestry. 



In Science we will be looking at the topic of Plants. We will be looking at the functions of flowering plants, for example, the roots, stem, trunk, leaves and the flowers. We will also be learning how plants transport water, pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal. 



In Art we are exploring textiles and will be designing and creating a fabric collage.
