Year 3

The United Kingdom in the World


Welcome back to school Year 3. Our exciting new topic this half term is all about the UK in the world. We will be using various sources such as atlases, maps and the    internet to locate the different countries in the UK. We will compare the different countries and cities in the UK by looking at their different characteristics.

In reading this half term we will be using ‘Treasure Island’ (Classics Starts edition) as our key focus. We will use this to explore: the meaning of words, inference, summarising and retrieving relevant information from the text.

In writing this half term we will be writing characters descriptions for Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver and a member of the crew that the children will create themselves. Then we will be writing a letter home from Jim Hawkins. We will also write fact files about the different parts of the UK.


In Maths this half term we will consolidate our previous learning whilst exploring fractions and time.
