And welcome to 3MH's and 3CT's year page. 


During Autumn 1 we have some great things to look forward to... 




This half term in English we will be learning about how we can extend our writing using conjunctions, fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases. We will be applying these newly learnt skills through writing diary entries, instructions and setting descriptions. The context for writing is the circus!   



As mathematicians this half term, we will be learning how to recognise the place value of 3-digit numbers, partitioning them into H, T an O. We will be building on our Y2 learning of +/- 1 and will be practising to +/- 10 and 100 from 3-digit numbers. We will then apply our place value knowledge when adding and subtracting.



As geographers this half term we will be conducting a local study of Hayling Island. We will use an atlas to locate Hayling and places close to it. We will look at what Hayling has to offer and will plan a route to drive there. We will also explore the human and physical features. 



As scientists this half term, we will be studying animals, including humans. We will identify that animals, including humans need the right types and amount of nutrition, and that they cannot make their own food and that they get nutrition from what they eat. We will also look at how humans and some animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement. 



In PSHE this half term we will be reminding ourselves of our school's visions and values and ho we can promote these inside and outside of the classroom.



As desginers this half term we will be learning to design, plan and build a fairground ride that could belong in Hayling Island fairground.
