Year 3

Croeso i Flwyddyn 3!

Welcome to Year 3!


Welcome to our Year 3 web page at Holton Primary School. Please visit our page regularly to keep up to date with the latest news and information.


Our topic this half term is called 'Mighty Metals' where the children will explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials. Expand your mind as you test and trial, build and move. Which force is at play when you slide down a slide and swing on a swing? Can you explain why magnets repel and attract? If you were a metal which one would you be? Gold, a shimmering, precious and costly mineral? Or steel that is a strong and useful alloy? Maybe youre not a metal at all but a force to be reckoned with!

Also, as part of our topic, the children will develop a wide range of Literacy and Maths skills. 


In order to help your child develop these skills further we would encourage you to read at home with your child including a range of Fiction and Non-Fiction books. Attached below are some fun ideas to use at home to help with your child's Maths development.
