Year 3

Week beginning 27th September 2021

Our topic this half term is “Let’s play a game

Maths and English

In Maths, we are moving on to our next unit, focusing on adding and subtracting. We will be adding and subtracting multiples of 1, multiples of 100 and adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers.

In English, we will continue to focus on games and will be consolidating our learning of conjunctions, prepositions and adverbs and using these to write an explanation.


In a few weeks we will start doing weekly spelling tests on a Friday so the children will need to practise these at home. We are currently reviewing the year 2 words so we can let you know exactly where. We will send a letter home once we have done this.
