Christ The King RC Primary School - To Work Is To Pray


Wonder, Believe, Shine & Achieve - Welcome to Year 3!

Autumn Term

During the Autumn term, we will begin researching the History of the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Throughout this topic, we will look at how we have evolved as humans, including the development of homes, clothing, tools and inventions.

In Science, we will be exploring rocks and soils, including lots of fun experiments.

Using the Come and See Programme, we will look at the importance of our homes and families and develop our knowledge of Baptism in the topic of ‘Promises’.

Within Maths, we will be using our scheme, Power Maths, to develop our knowledge of Place Value, Addition and Subtraction and Multiplication and Division.

In English, we will use the Read Write Inc Programme, and develop our skills in writing story settings and instructions.  We will then link our knowledge and skills to Topic where we will read Stig of the Dump, Stone Age Boy, Ug and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth.

In addition to this written homework, the children must:

·         Read regularly with an entry in their reading record books.
