Term 5

Year 3 Term 5

We are looking forward to another spectacular term!

Our theme this term is:

Extreme Earth



In Geography this term, we will be exploring the cause and damage of earthquakes around the world.


In Maths, we will begin by developing our dividing skills and learning different strategies to divide. We will also be focussing on our multiplication and division number facts.


In English, we will begin the term by exploring and writing non-chronological reports focussing on earthquakes and volcanoes. We will be using the text Escape from Pompeii as a stimulus for our writing. We will end the term with work stemming from Ted Hughes’ Iron Man.

In Science, this term will be all about Rocks and Soils. We will explore the characteristics of different rocks and soils and will be testing their properties through practical experiments.


Homework was given out last term on Bingo sheets. We ask that the children complete one activity a week. If you need a copy of the bingo sheet, please just ask. Please also continue to encourage your child to complete their MyMaths homework. Your child’s username and password should in in their journal.

Please ensure your child’s reading planner is in school each day and that your child is reading at home at least three times a week. There are also fun weekly journal tasks to complete.


Thank you from the Year 3 Team.
