Autumn term 1 2023

The Iron Man by Ted Hughes

This term we are going to be reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.


We will be studying our core text, ‘The Iron Man’. Children will have the opportunity to first learn the story, then they will be able to adapt it themselves. We will be looking at writing instructions on how to trap the Iron Man to finish the term.


As mathematicians, we will focus on place value for the first three weeks then we will be moving onto addition and subtraction.


We will be exploring Forces and Magnets this term.


This term we are looking at how and why places change. This includes looking at Lanner in the past and comparing it to the present.


Children will have two PE sessions each week – please make sure your child wears their PE kit into school every Wednesday and Thursday.


The children will be learning to use chrome books, creating and storing documents on a cloud-based server.


Year 3 will continue with their French lessons this term.


In year 3, children need to read as much as possible. All children are expected to read at home most nights for 10 – 15 minutes either to themselves or with an adult. This could be their school reading book, listening to a story read by someone else or sharing a favourite book. All are equally valuable.   All children have a reading record book in which parents, carers or the children themselves can record what they have read or make any comments.

Spellings will be tested, and new spellings issued, each Friday. Please support your child to work on the accompanying sheets, these are designed to make spelling practice more fun and varied!

In addition, children all have access to Times Tables Rockstars, an online site for practicing their times tables.
