After a fantastic first half term in Year Three, we will be continuing our topic Planet Rocks, studying our planet, sun and solar system. As part of this, we will be learning about the sun’s light and how it creates shadows; volcanoes and earthquakes on our planet; and the magnetic force.
In English, we will be exploring and performing a range of poems and will be writing some of our own. Following the excitement of our new arrivals at Hogarth, we will then look at writing our own chronological reports that explain the life cycle of a chick. Finally, we will finish the term writing instructional texts. These will explain how to make your very own exploding volcano.
In Maths, we will continue to look at column addition before moving on to subtraction. We will then move on to calculating multiplication and division problems, using our times-tables and mental strategies, and then progressing to more formal methods.
