Year 3 Hedgehogs

Teacher - Miss Sutton
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Revitt

This term we have a very exciting geography project! We are going to be exploring and comparing the

United Kingdom, with a focus on England, to Greece.

The children will name and locate counties and cities of the United Kingdom, geographical regions and their

identifying human and physical characteristics. We will also explore key topographical features (including

hills, mountains, coasts and rivers), land use patterns and understand how some of these aspects have

changed over time. They will compare this to Greece and create a portfolio on their iPads.

As always, we will be enjoying a range of books during reading for pleasure and guided reading. Our class

read this term is ‘The Last Bear’ by Hannah Gold which will enable us to discuss environmental issues

including climate change. We will also be exploring ‘The Journey’ by Neil Griffiths and Scott Mann. Year 3

will follow the journey of a child's boat along a stream, to a river and beyond. From this, we will explore

the water cycle and make pollution/area comparisons.

In our literacy lessons, the children will be diving into a meeting tale followed by a newspaper report about

Greece.

In maths, we are going to be learning about fractions/decimals, length and perimeter. Alongside this, we

will be exploring statistics and money.

We will be looking at Matthew Cusick and his artwork. The children will be using this as inspiration to

create their own artwork with a focus on water and maps. In DT, they will also be creating their own

models of rivers, hills and mountains from either the UK or Greece. They will first design it then make and

evaluate it.
