Topics for the Autumn Term

Autumn 1 - The Blue Abyss  

Autumn 2 - Tremors


Grab your wetsuit. We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures.  Let's learn about life in the ocean.




We will be studying and producing a variety of work based on a number of books during this half term. These will include:-

Dear Greenpeace - Simon James

Peter's Place - Sally Grindley

Flotsam - Davis Weisner



AUTUMN TERM 1- Place Value - Count from 0 in multiples of 4,8,50 and 100. Find 10 or 100 more or less of a given number. Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations. Read and write numbers to 1000 in numerals and words. To recognise the place value of each digit in a three digit number. Compare and order numbers up to 1000. Solve number problems and practical problems.



Forces and Magnets - To compare how things move on different surfaces. Notice that some forces need contact between 2 objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance.

Observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others. Compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials.

To describe magnets as having 2 poles. To predict whether 2 magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing.



The Creation - Place the concepts of God and Creation on a timeline of the Bible’s ‘Big Story’. Make clear links between Genesis 1 and what Christians believe about God and Creation. Describe what Christians do because they believe God is Creator. (For example, follow God, wonder at how amazing God’s creation is; care for the earth in some specific ways.)



PE will be on a Monday afternoon and children will need to wear their PE kit to school. The kit will comprise of black jogging bottoms/leggings, a white t-shirt and their school jumper.  Trainers will also need to be worn into school.



In Year 3, children will continue with Guided Reading in class. Please note, these books do not go home.

‘Home Readers’ will be Oxford Reading Tree books and we ask that you read with your child at home as much as possible.  Oxford Reading Tree books can be changed once an adult has confirmed completion of their current book.



Spellings will be given for the whole half term. Spellings are tested on a Friday.

At the moment the children have been asked to read each night and continue to work on Times Tables Rock Stars and Manga High.

There will be further information regarding homework provided in the coming weeks.
