Autumn 2023

Welcome to year 3 – a new school year and an exciting new start!


This term we have a very exciting topic to explore. Our History and Geography topic is centred around ‘The Stone Age to the Iron Age’.


We will begin by discovering some stone age artefacts. We’ll use these artefacts to identify what life was like during the stone age. The book ‘The Stone Age Boy’ will support us in gathering facts and key information so we can hold a debate.  Our topic will lead us on to find out about different types of houses and tools from the stone age.


    Our English lessons link to one of my favourite books... The Stone Age Boy!

    We will read the book and then use it to write our own stories. 



    As you move into key stage 2, you will start to see why understanding place value in numbers is so important. Therefore, we will begin the year by recapping some of our place value knowledge from year 2. This will lead us quite nicely into place value of three-digit numbers which will be a focus of our year 3 maths lessons to start with. 


    We will also do lots of problem solving!

    Don't forget!

    • Reading book and home link book (every day). This will ensure you and your child do not miss any key information stuck in the books.
    • PE is on Mondays and Thursdays - children will need to bring in their full PE kit at the beginning of term. A full PE kit includes; a white t-shirt, black or blue shorts or trousers and trainers or pumps
    • Forest school is on a Friday for alternating groups. Children's groups are in their home link books.
