Year Three

Overview

In Year 3 and 4 we have 156 children.  The Assistant Headteachers are Mr Lomas and Mrs Florence.  The class teachers in Year 3 are Mr Lomas, Miss Fazal and Miss Bhalla.  Mrs Pinna (Miss Parkin recently married) teaches a mixed class with pupils who are in Year 3 and Year 4.  In Year 4 the teachers are Mrs Florence, Miss Asma and Mr Evans.
 

The children have made a fantastic start to the school year.  They are enthusiastic, confident and resilient.  We are really impressed by how they are all looking out for each other, being helpful to all and working together to make Green Lane a fantastic place to learn.

This autumn term we will be focusing on our History skills learning about the ‘Secrets of the Stone Age to the Iron Age’.  We will be learning about prehistoric civilisations and how we have come to know so much about people that lived thousands of years ago.  We will look closely at artefacts such as cave paintings, early tools, fire hearths and historic sites.  We will look at famous historic landmarks such as Stonehenge and Skara Brae, and important archaeological finds such as Cheddar Man and the Amesbury Archer.  We will learn about how settlements were made, the materials that they used to survive.  We will be linking our writing and reading with the topic.  We will write a time travelling story, a travel brochure and a non-chronological report.  We will look at books by Clive King, Satoshi Kitamura, Raymond Brigg and Charlotte Guillian.

In Science we will be looking at ‘Light’ and in Maths we will be looking at place value using numbers with 3 digits in Year 3 and numbers with 4 digits in Year 4.

Please have a look at our Knowledge Organisers and use them to discuss the learning with the children.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more, please make an appointment to speak to a member of the team and we will be happy to help.
