Year 3

In January, the school was closed following government guidelines in response to COVID-19. Our remote education is now in place (more information can be found in the remote learning tab). The remote education will follow our curriculum as close as possible. Below is the intended learning for Spring term which will be closely mirrored in our remote education.

For our curriculum this term we will be looking at human rights, inspired by our core text “Little book of big freedoms” we will be looking at the impact rights and law have on the humanity and real life issues. We will be looking at how we can help this problem on a school scale. We will also be looking in comparing and contrasting our local area and Portugal exploring how and why our geographical location and cultures are different.

In English this half term, we will be starting our new core text, ‘Little book of big freedoms. We will be building on our previous skills of writing speeches to inform the younger members of our school about human rights and the rights of the child. In the second part of the half term, we will begin to use our literacy and knowledge of human rights to create poetry based around these themes.

In maths this half term, children will be focusing on multiplication and division on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.

The children will be identifying patterns and applying their knowledge of their times tables to solve problems.

In science, we will be researching plants and what they need in order to grow.

In geography, we will be researching geographical features of our local area and Portugal – we will have a focus on rivers and their importance in geography.

In RE, we will be exploring Islam and special religious festivals within this faith.

In Art, we will be looking at the work of Chris Riddell to create our own sketches and watercolour art works.
