Y3 Hedgehogs and Squirrels

Welcome to Year 3!

Autumn 1

Year 3 - Hedgehogs and Squirrels. Miss Neville and Miss Millsom.



Year 3 are currently studying the topic ‘The BFG’. Our topic will explore the Roald Dahl story about the Big Friendly Giant learning all about its characters and plot. The children kick-started the project by using helping the BFG to find all his things that he had lost when he visited Newtown Primary School.


In English, we will be using this information to create a character and setting descriptions to share and spread the message of the BFG to Year 4.


In Guided Reading, we are reading Roald Dahl’s ‘The BFG’, a story which explores the themes of relationships, dreams and feelings. The children are thoroughly enjoying reading about characters who lead very different lives to their own.

Our science topic this half term will be ‘Feeding Relationships and the Environment’. The children will learn to recognise and classify living things in a variety of ways and investigate food chains.

We will begin our French sessions where we are learning how to greet each other and introduce ourselves in formal and informal situations.



In one of our two weekly PE slots, we will be working outside and developing our Football skills. In indoor PE, we have just begun looking at shapes and movement in gymnastics.


All this will happen in conjunction with our daily maths lessons.
