    Year 3 Project, Summer 2 term 2022: What’s on the Menu?!

  • What’s the big idea?

    Think about all the different meals that you have eaten over the last five days. This might include home meals, school meals and any restaurant meals you have eaten.

    Have you ever stopped to consider where your food comes from? Who made it? How were the ingredients grown? How many different people were responsible for the food that ends up on your plate?

    Food is essential. It gives us energy to do the things that we want to do – but how much do we really know about how food is produced and prepared?

  • What will we be learning?


    • Plants:

    We will review the different functions and parts of flowering parts; what plants need for life and growth; the way in which water is transported within plants

    • Animals:

    We will be able to identify that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition.

    • Light:

    We will know more about how light is reflected from surfaces, and that shadows are formed when the light from a source is blocked.


    We will be able to:

    • Locate the world’s countries using maps
    • Develop an understanding of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and the Equator
    • Use eight points of a compass to describe the location of Nigeria, Shropshire, Holland and Essex (as well as other regions we have learnt this year)
    • Compare similarities and differences between these regions


    We will be know about:

    • artists from the Dutch Golden Age, for example Rembrandt and Vermeer
    • John Constable’s landscape paintings

    We will be able to:

    • Use painting and sketching techniques, and collage
  • knowledge organiser

    We use a knowledge organiser for every project in every year group. It is a helpful way for children and families to see the key knowledge that children will learn. This key knowledge helps the children ask more questions and then find out more information.

    It would be helpful to talk with your child about this knowledge organiser. As the project develops, they will be able to share more knowledge. Thank you!

  • Maths

    We will continue learning about fractions and decimals. We will then explore shapes, time and mass/capacity. We will recap the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and we will continue to practise our 2, 5, 10, 3. 4 and 8 times tables. It is essential your child knows these before moving up to year 4.

    If your child still can’t tell the time yet, this is a great thing to work on at home. Thank you!

  • English

    We will explore narrative writing by looking at ‘The Animals of Farthing Wood’. We will continue working on improving our knowledge of word classes and punctuation. We will continue practising how to join our handwriting.

  • statutory SPELLING LISTS

  • Year 3 Notes & Dates

    School day:

    The Year 3 school day starts at 8.45am. and finishes at 3.15pm.

    PE Kits

    School PE uniform is black shorts (or tracksuit bottoms) with a white t-shirt and trainers. All children will come to school wearing PE kit on their PE days.

    Year 3 PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.


    We continue to send home learning out every Friday. Thank you for returning this on Mondays– you can always email home learning to us too unicorn@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

    If you have any problems with completing the homelearning tasks, please talk to your teacher at pick up, or email your teacher. unicorn@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

    The most important home learning you can do is reading and times tables practice.

    Hen Corner

    We loved visiting this for our Entry Point. Hen Corner is so close to school! Thank you to everyone who came and helped.

    Good luck with your pot of pea seeds!

    Nigeria or Holland

    Do you have maps, books, photographs, artefacts from these areas?

    Do you have books or stories about food that we could borrow? (We will look after them!)

    Would you like to come and talk about your visits to these areas?! We would love to have you in our classrooms!

    Artists of the Week

    This year we have learnt about artists such as Bob Marley, Ludovico Einaudi, Elvis Presley, ABBA etc. We hope your child has enjoyed learning about them! If you have any suggestions for artist of the week, do let us know!


    Symptoms of COVID-19 or of a cold:

    You will be asked to follow the COVID-19 guidance for households with possible infection coronavirus guidance.


    You will be asked to have your child tested for COVID-19 as this could have an impact on our school. This can include testing for all children and their families, if displaying symptoms.

  • How to Contact The Year 3 Team
