This terms fabulous topic is called Incredible Inventions.  The children have had the opportunity to learn all about Inventors and their amazing inventions! At the beginning of this journey we discovered all about the different inventors that have helped to shape our world, along with some fascinating new inventions that have recently been created. In the coming weeks we will also learn about the world of robots and how in the future they will impact on our lives.

In English the children will be studying a book called The Iron Man. They will be thinking about his character and developing their inferences and deductive skills. They will be learning different techniques for descriptive writing such as similes and will also be focussing on the features of a newspaper report which will help them to create their own version based upon the Iron Man.

In maths they will be learning to add and subtract using different methods, multiply through repeated addition and explore 2D shape.

In year 3 the children are expected to read 3-4 times a week and their reading journal should be completed each time they read.
