Welcome to 3B

This term we will be learning about........Hull!

We will be bringing the City of Culture into the classroom to celebrate our amazing city.  Our learning will begin by looking at our own different roots and routes. We will study our family backgrounds on maps and by discussing if we’ve ever moved around the city, country or even the world! The children will then begin to study Barbara Buttrick, who is a famous boxer from Hull. One of our biggest focuses will be how she has influenced Hull, particularly with prejudices and stereotypes within sport. And of course, the class will get to try out boxing within PE lessons.


This term the children will be accessing their Literacy learning through a Hull based story called Interchange and the non-fiction text book of the Guinness World Records.

We will start with some five part story writing and move on to recap non-chronological reports and recounts.

Our new learning will be how to write an explanation text, ensuring that we write in order and make our points really clear.

This year, the children will become confident in working with 3 digit numbers. Maths this term will be heavily focused on the 4 operations which are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

In other areas of Maths, the children will be learning about fractions. They will be able to recognise, find and write fractions linked to shapes and numbers. They will start to make links with equivalent fractions and have fun adding and subtracting simple fractions. 



During the last two weeks before May half term, year 3 will be taking part in many amazing activities that link to our topic and Barbara Buttrick. They will be sculpting their own boxing glove, designing a t-shirt and learning all about Barbara’s interesting life. Watch out for our end of day performances during these two weeks, they will be spectacular!
