Year 3 - Dahl

Welcome to Dahl Class


Mr Devine and Mrs Johnsen


The children will be learning all about the life and times in Tudor England.



We are studying the book 'Gangsta Granny' by David Walliams

Ben is bored beyond belief after he is made to stay at his grandma’s house. She’s the boringest grandma ever: all she wants to do is play Scrabble and eat cabbage soup. But there are two things Ben doesn’t know about his grandma.

1) She was once an international jewel thief.
2) All her life, she has been plotting to steal the Crown Jewels, and now she needs Ben’s help...





In mathematics pupils will be focusing on strengthening their problem solving skills, while developing in all other areas of the mathematics curriculum. This half term we will be developing our place value skills further. As we are now in Year 3, Place value will focus on hundreds, tens and ones. Our number work will be learning strategies to mentally add and subtract a 3 digit multiple to a 3 digit number. We will also be recalling multiplication facts and introducing the 4 times table.




This term we will be learning to play the Ukulele.



We will be pushing and pulling our way through science discovering about different types of plants and how they live.



In art we will be learning all about the royal portraits of British Monarchs and creating our own royal self portraits.




Outside lessons will take place on Tuesday afternoon. Children will be learning to play Tri-Golf. As the weather gets colder, please send your child with outside trainers and warm, black tracksuit bottoms and a white t-shirt.

Friday afternoon will be indoors, and children must have their black shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls for this.

Please note: For health and safety reasons please remove earrings on these days.






We will have one session in the library every week. This is a great opportunity for children to change their reading books and library books!

Please remember to read with your child on a daily basis - there are RED prizes to be won!
