Welcome to Year 3

 

In Year 3 we learn about exciting topics which include the Ancient Greeks and the Stone Age and these involve educational visits to Durham University.

In English we look at range of texts including those by David Walliams, The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and Stig of the Dump by Clive King.

In Maths we learn our four and eight times table as well as learning how to count in 50s.  We learn to tell the time by reading Roman Numerals and learn about angles and which ones are more or less than a right angle.  We develop our calculation skills by learning how to carry out column addition and subtraction.

We have PE with Mr Evans.
