Under Attack!!

The legend of Podkin One-Ear by Kieran Larwood

This term we are going to be reading the first book in Kieran Larwood’s Five Realms series. We are linking this with our history topic of Ancient Rome.


We will be studying our core text, ‘Podkin One-Ear’. 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 a fact-file on the Romans to finish the term.


As mathematicians, we will focus on shape and then moving on to our last unit on statistics. In shape we will be looking at recognising angles and describing the size of a turn and understanding greater angles as having made a greater turn and comparing angles. In statistics, we will be learning about representing data using pictograms, bar charts and understanding two-way tables.


This term we will be learning about animals including humans and about what we eat and the different food groups and how they keep us healthier. We will also be looking at the different diets of animals.


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


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.

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