Year 3 Learning Overview - Spring Term 2 1019

What are we learning?

Our topic for this half of the term is ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’.

As scientists, we will be learning about the five food groups and what makes a healthy and balanced diet. We will also be experimenting with different foods and predicting what changes will happen when we heat, cool, or mix foods together.

As geographers, we will be exploring the journey of a various fruits and finding out how we can buy beautifully ripe fruits from the supermarket when they come from so far away.

We will also be learning what ‘Fairtrade’ means for us and the farmers.

In addition:

In English, we will studying the story ‘Cloud Tea Monkeys’, which is set in an Indian tea plantation. We will be writing playscripts and adverts for tea using enticing phrases. We will be learning how to use prepositions and conjunctions to add detail to our sentences.

In maths, we will be collecting, representing and interpreting data, identifying, adding and subtracting fractions and solving problems involving money.

In Mandarin, we will be starting a unit called 'Chinese Kitchen', which will be all about Chinese food. We will be learning the names of various food items.

In Philosophy for Children (P4C), we will be focusing on how we listen and respond to others’ viewpoints. 

In music, we will learning the violin.

Key information:

PE kit:  Please make sure your children have navy blue or black shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a Harris PE t-shirt with the school logo, plimsolls and socks in a named PE bag in school. Children in Goldcrest class will have PE on Monday and Tuesday, and children in Nightingale class will have PE on Monday and Thursday P.E kits will be sent home on Friday and should return to school on Monday.

Children are not allowed to do PE without the appropriate kit. Please could you check your child’s kit as the children have been doing quite a bit of growing over the last term.

Violin lessons:  Violin lessons take place on Tuesdays; children will continue to take their violins home with them to enable them to practise during the week.  We recommend that children practise every day for 10 minutes.  Violins will be sent home on a Tuesday and must come back into school on Monday so that they can be tuned ready for the lesson on Tuesday.

Home learning: Home learning will be handed out weekly on a Thursday and should be returned to school on a Tuesday.

There will also be one half-termly homework project. Home learning projects will be due on Tuesday 2nd April 2019.

The home learning project is a way for your child to show off the learning that they have been doing throughout the term, this is an opportunity for children to present their learning in a way that interests them. Here are some ideas:

  •  Write a shopping list for your family’s weekly menu and calculate how much it    will cost. Don’t forget to look for Fairtrade options.

Keep a food diary to record the different types of food you eat over the weekend. Report back; in your opinion, has your family got a balanced diet?


Make an alphabetic list of foods from A to Z. Is it possible?


Make an information booklet about a festival that involves eating a special type of food. There are lots to choose from!


Make a dish from a recipe book and take photographs to share back at school. Remember to wash your hands before getting going!


Write an imaginative story which starts…‘You’re not going to eat me are you?’ said the…


Make a fabric dye from a strongly coloured fruit or vegetable. Try beetroot, carrot, tea, spinach or strawberry. Try dip-dying an old white T-shirt or handkerchief into your coloured dye. What happens?


Design and make an exciting sandwich. Bring it in to school for everyone to taste!


Plan yourself a weekly exercise regime and encourage a parent or carer to do it with you!
