Year 3 2023 - 2024

Mrs Coyne


Welcome to Year 3

Spring Term

'Connected by Curiosity: Whizz, Pop, Bang!'

Mrs Coyne and  Miss Beardsall




In English this half term, we will be travelling back in time with The Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. A young boy falls into the past and befriends Om, a girl who is not like anyone he has ever met before. Om shows the boy how people lived in the Stone Age and they embark on an adventure which shapes the boys future.

As writers, we will be writing in present and past tense and examining the lives of Stone Age people. 








This term we are going to be focusing on the following:

  • Measurement - measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)
  • Perimeter - measure the perimeter of simple 2-D shapes
  • Money - add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both £ and p in practical contexts
  • Statistics - interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables
  • Shape - Identify right angles, recognise that 2 right angles make a half-turn, 3 make three-quarters of a turn and 4 a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle. Identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines

This term, our whole school Learning in Context theme is

'Connected by Curiosity: Whizz, Pop, Bang!'

In Year 3, we will be focussing on developing our understanding of the Stone Age period and how our lives are connected to people in the past.


We will investigate three BIG questions:

Why do people choose to settle in certain place?

How do people leave their mark on the world?






We are starting the year with our online detectives module. We will be learning how to stay safe online and how to locate information we need safely.




In Computing, we have been practising our typing skills and  seeing if we can develop the skill of 'touch typing'.
