Year 3 Autumn Curriculum Letter.

Class Teacher: Miss Davis, Learning Assistant: Mrs Mansfield.


Dear Parents,

For the Autumn term, our topics will be Tribal Tales and Flow.


The children will be writing adventure stories and poems.  There will be handwriting sessions three times a week. 

Guided reading

Each week, the children will read to an adult and have a set of tasks to complete.  They can change their reading books in the morning, during guided reading or at the end of the day.  Each child will also have the opportunity to borrow a library book.


This term we will be developing their understanding of place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.


In science, the children will be learning about plants and the water cycle.


The children will be looking at prehistoric art and recreating their own pieces.


The children will be adding text and pictures, using powerpoint, coding and learning how to use the internet safely.


The children will be looking at maps, aerial photographs and river features.


We will be learning about the Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age.


The children will be improvising and performing music, following the Charanga scheme.


The children will be learning what it means to be a Christian in Britain today.


The children will be learning to feel positive, how to treat others respectfully and how to deal with falling out.


The children will be swimming and developing skills associated with invasion games.  Children must not wear earrings and must have their hair tied back if it is long.  They must always have plimsolls in their P.E. bags.


Homework is set on a Friday and is due the following Wednesday.  It will include an English and Maths activity, as well as words to learn for our spelling assessments, which the children do every Wednesday.  Please read at home regularly with your child at least three times a week.


The children will visit Layer Marney to learn about the Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age. While there, they will have the opportunity to experience an archaeological dig.

Many thanks,

Miss Davis
