Year 3

Week beginning 1st November 2021

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed a lovely half term!

Maths and English

In Maths we are continuing with our adding and subtracting unit. We will be adding and subtracting 2-digit and 3-digit numbers crossing 10 and 100, with and without exchanging.

In English we will be linking our learning with our project. Using the history and geography elements to support our writing.


We will begin spelling tests on the first week back from half term. These will take place on a Wednesday so you should be practising week 1 spellings for Wednesday 3rd November.
