Year Three: Highfields and Arboretum

In Year 3, we will continue learning about The Great Plague and our big question is ‘Why did so many people in Nottingham die from the Plague?’ Children will:

  • learn about and understand a past situation and enter into past lives
  • understand the sequence of events during the Plague (chronology)
  • read and understand challenging texts
  • revisit and consolidate their understanding of the diary, instruction and information genres.


As part of our history work, children will have the opportunity to visit the village of Eyam in Derbyshire.    In maths, we will continue to focus on our 3, 4 & 8 times tables and use this knowledge to support us with multiplication and division. Our current science theme is ‘Light’ we will be moving onto plants. In English, our book focus is on the wonderful picture book ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ by Carol-Ann Duffy.  Children will make predictions, develop inference skills using text and pictures, visualise the settings and looked closely at characters. During computing lessons children will be taught coding skills.      In Harmony will be on Wednesdays for both classes.


P.E. will be on Friday. We will also be going swimming on Tuesday.


P.E. will be on Monday.
