Key Information

In Year 3, pupils’ skills are consolidated, with a particular focus on key skills, including spelling, handwriting and mental maths.

Year 3 topics are Ancient Britons, The Docks and The United Kingdom. Pupils use these topics both in history and geography lessons and in English to explore subjects in greater depth. Books covered in Year 3 include ‘Stone Age Boy’, ‘Oliver Twist’ and contemporary fiction by Neil Gaiman and Anthony Browne.

Pupils also develop their understanding both of their local and national environment, mapping the local area and learning about the key landmarks in the United Kingdom. In the Summer term, pupils learn about ‘Great Britons’, including William Shakespeare, Shackleton and the Queen and the Royal Family. In Science, we investigate rocks, light and the human body, planning and carrying out our own investigations.

Recent trips have included visits to The British Museum and work with British Land to explore the local area.

Can you write a sentence containing a relative clause?

E.g. The giraffe, who strode gracefully across the field with his long legs, wore a sad look on his face.

It splits the main clause.

The clause begins with ‘who’, ‘which’ or ‘with’.

It must supply an extra bit of information to the sentence.

Commas should surround the relative clause.

Here is a balance. It has a hook on each end from which you can hang weights.

My weights are numbers - I have 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s.

If I put a 2 on one side and two 1s on the other side, it is balanced.
If I put a 3 on one side, I would need three 1s to make it balance. How else could I make it balance with just a 3 on one side?

If I had a 3 and a 4 on one side and three 2s on the other side, what do I need to add to make it balance and where?

I hang a 10 on one side. How many different ways can you find of hanging numbers on the other side to make it balance?

Look at the story starter

They had entered the caves earlier that day. As soon as they entered the underground labyrinth they had been plunged into darkness, with the only light coming from the frothing pools of orange lava beneath. She could hear the occasional plop, as bubbles of toxic gas burst their way to the surface, filling the cave with a nose-stinging stench.

The girl and her young companion bravely headed out across the stepping-stones, trying to ignore the peril below. Their adventure was only just beginning…
