Year 3

Welcome to Year 3's Homepage.


Our topic this half term will be ‘Fashion’. During this topic the children will:

  • Explore the process of fashion design.
  • Research key designers and influences throughout the history of fashion.
  • Understand how societal change impacts fashion.
  • Know the different eras of fashion.


In English our new Power of Reading book is ‘Coco Chanel: Little People, Big Dreams’ written by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara. This exciting and immersive book details the childhood of famous fashion designer Coco Chanel.

During our English lessons based on the book we will be using descriptive techniques, using immersive writing to put ourselves in the mind-set of Coco, diary entries, non-chronological reports and newspaper articles.



This half term maths will be focusing on the topic of time, in which we will be looking at how to work out duration, 24hr clock and am/pm. We shall also begin looking at geometry to improve our knowledge of the properties of shapes. Finally, we will be moving onto mass and capacity and know how to convert different measurements.



In Science, we will be recapping our knowledge across all previous topics. We will test our understanding of light, magnets, animals including humans and plants. We will conduct a range of experiments and investigations to widen our understanding of science and to address any previous misconceptions.
