Robbie lies in a coma after a terrible car accident involving his dog, Lucky. He can hear but he can’t move or speak. 

“Sometimes I tell myself that I’m in the middle of a bad dream… I’m locked inside my head and I can’t get out.”

Our English work will be based around Robbie’s accident, those who witnessed it and the attempt to wake him.


Spelling is initially taught as discrete lessons, where pupils learn rules and carry out activities that allow them to investigate these rules. Pupils are not given spelling lists to learn and will be tested each week based on the application of rules taught.

(View the attached rules – PDF)


Our maths lessons follow the Maths No Problem scheme. This is an approach taught across the whole school. This half term, pupils will be learning about volume, money, time and data. These will also form part of problem solving.

Topic – Anglo Saxons

This half term our topic work will be based on Anglo-Saxons. They will look at Britain’s settlements and kingdoms. They will also look at daily life as well art and culture from that period.


Science is taught as through Science Weeks. This half term, Year 3 will be learning about light. Pupils will recognise that light is required to see and how it reflects off surfaces. They will understand how shadows are formed and investigate how the size of shadows can be changed.
