Year 3 Curriculum


Curriculum Information for Parents and Carers    Year 3

Welcome to the Summer Term 2 Curriculum newsletter for Year 3 here at Little Heaton CE Primary School. The teaching team in year 3 currently consists of Mrs Scull (Mon/Tues/Weds am), Mrs Crawford (Weds pm/Thurs/Fri) and we are provided with valuable support from Miss Mott and Mrs McQuaid. If you have any questions at any time please come and speak to one of us.



Our reading sessions will be a combination of guided reading and whole class sessions. During these we will be focussing on learning to

  •          Read most words accurately
  •          Check words make sense in every sentence
  •          Make predictions about texts
  •          Retrieve answers from what is read
  •          Know what the writer is inferring – saying without              putting into words
  •         Retell well known stories orally
  •         Recognise different types of poetry




In our writing this term we will be learning how to use writing to persuade other people, both informally in adverts and also formally in a letter. 

Later on in the term we will be writing our own shape poetry.




In Maths this term  we will be doing work on geometry , learning about different types of angles and 



In Science we will be learning about plants. We will learn the names of different parts of the plants and what they do. We will also look at the importance of the flower in the life cycle of a flowering plant.


This term we will be finding out about computer networks and starting to understand what the internet is and how it works.


Our History topic took place and we learnt about Ancient Egypt.  


What are the similarities and differences between living in England and living in France? This is the question we will be trying to answer this half term, developing our use of maps and the internet to find out information.





Design Technology

 Our focus this term will be on Design Technology. We will be designing and making our own product and then evaluating and testing what we have made. 


In music we will be learning to to play the ukulele. We are lucky to have a specialist music teacher, Mr Addington, leading our sessions.



We are continuing swimming lessons on Tuesday mornings so please remember to have a good breakfast and bring your swimming kit on this day.  Our PE day this year will be on a Thursday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school every week. Lewis from Bury football will be leading these sessions. Our focus this term will be rounders.
