YEAR 3 CURRICULUM INFORMATION

MATHS

Chapter 3 - Multiplication and Division

In this chapter, children will cover the multiplication and division of 3, 4 and 8. Children will then get to use their experience of multiplication and division to solve word problems.

Chapter 4 - Further Multiplication and Division

This chapter covers multiplying by a 2-digit number. Lessons look at multiplying where regrouping is necessary before children start to look at division. Once children master multiplication and division, they focus on solving problems using the multiplication and division methods dealt with in previous lessons.

Chapter 5 - Length

This chapter looks at length in metres and centimetres before moving on to kilometres. Children will learn to measure different items using centimetres, metres and kilometres. They will also be able to convert different units of measurement as well as compare different lengths.

Pugs of the Frozen North

Author: Philip Reeve
Illustrator: Sarah McIntyre
 
When True Winter comes, once in a lifetime, teams on sledges pulled by animals take part in the Great Northern Race across the snow, of which there are fifty kinds, to the Snowfather’s palace at the top of the world. Cabin boy Shen, cast adrift from his ship with 66 pug dogs, meets Sika who is desperate to take part in the race. They join forces and exhilarating adventures ensue involving the Kraken, yetis and trolls, not to mention the other participants in the race.

 

This is Sarah McIntyre and Philip Reeve’s third collaboration and is the most powerful yet for its combination of excitement, humour and emotion.

History

The Indus Valley

We explore the cities of the Indus Valley Civilisation, and the clues they give us about how the Indus people lived. Through their art, we learn about what the Indus people thought was important, and how they lived. We go on to learn the Indus Civilisation did not have coins! Without money, how did they buy and sell their goods?

Geography

Rivers

We begin by exploring the River Indus in the Himalayas, one of the longest rivers in the world. We go on to learn how this and other rivers shape the land they flow through.
