Year 3

World Cup


The children will be looking at the history of the World Cup by looking at past and present winners using a timeline. We will be creating our own World Cup postage stamps just like England produced in 1966! Subsequently, we will be locating different FIFA world cup countries, continents and oceans using globes and atlases. We will then be developing our design skills by creating our very own blow football game ready to play at school. At the end of this half term, Year 3 will also be designing and creating a stall for the Summer Fair. 


This half term we will be looking at a range of football poems in order to create our own poems. After that, we will be learning about the author Shirley Hughes by reading a range of her stories and poems. Subsequently, we will then be reading her book 'Doggr,' a story about a lost toy dog that was found at a summer fair!


This half term, the children will be asking questions and carrying out  investigations about the World Cup by creating bar charts and pictograms. We will continue to develop our knowledge of numbers, money or measures and carrying out appropriate calculations in the context of the summer fair. Please keep practising your multiplication facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 times–tables and the corresponding division facts. 

This half term, the children will be learning about forces and linking this to their stall design for the summer fair. We will be looking at pushing and pulling, magnets and friction. 

PE days are Monday and Thursday! This term the children are continuing with Football and Team Games, so please ensure that your child's kit is in school all week so nobody misses out!Welcome back to school after half term. I hope you all had a lovely break and are ready to start learning again! 

In both SEAL and RE we will be carrying on our learning about 'Changes,' this will be particularly relevant as we begin thinking about moving up to the next year group soon!

Homework - Homework is given out on a Friday and is due back in school on the following Wednesday.

This term in literacy, Year 3 will be looking at play scripts linking in to William Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest.’ The Children will be developing their speaking and listening skills by learning different play scripts and beginning to write their own based on this famous play.

This term in mathematics, the children will be beginning to look at symmetry in shapes and the 4 directions: North, East, South and West! We will be continuing to develop the children’s number work by looking at the four operations.

This term in science Year 3 will be looking at plants and what keeps them healthy! We will be looking at what plants need to grow, as well as planting our own seeds to see this process happening in class.

This term we will be exploring the life and works of William Shakespeare. The children will be taking part in a Year 3/4 production on Shakespeare’s life at the end of this half-term, so there is much to look forward to! In addition to this, children will be busy making mini Globe theatres, ready for their own plays to be brought to life!


PE days will continue to be on a Monday and a Thursday so please ensure that PE kits are in all week so that nobody misses out on any exciting learning!

Finally, a big thank you to India class for all of the hard work put in to last term's homework project, the recycled bird feeders looked brilliant! I am sure that the local birds will really appreciate them in the weather we have been having recently!

Please ensure that you keep reading at home regularly and also practising your times tables!

Welcome to 2014!


Mrs Hawley and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are looking forward to starting back in India class.

This half term we will be finding out all about birds in the local area of Waterlooville and beyond! We will be looking at different ways we can attract endangered birds to our school by studying what these birds eat and enjoy.

Mr Eyre will continue to take the class every Wednesday afternoon this term. 

For this half-term's homework project I am asking the children to create a bird house out of recyclable materials along with a fact-file about a certain bird they are wishing to attract. More information will be given about this project in a separate homework letter. I am very much looking forward to the end products, which will be brought in to school and shown to the other classes at the end of this term. 

P.E days are now on a Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that children's P.E kits are in school all week so they don't miss out on any exciting activities.

We are all looking forward to seeing you all back on the 7th January 2014.
