Welcome to Year 3.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all the children and parents back after the Christmas holidays. The year 3 Spring newsletter is attached at the bottom of the page.
Spring Term Curriculum:
Our theme for the first half term is “The Rainforest” and for the second half term is "Opposites". The children will be investigating 'Plants' then 'Light and Shadow' in their Science work, the location of Rainforests in Geography and studying a book called 'The Great Kapok Tree' in English. Our authors of the term are SF Said then Julia Donaldson/Axel Scheffler so our VIPERS text are 'Varjak Paw' and 'Romeo and Juliet' to link with our second English text called 'The Smeds and The Smoos' (which the children have been enjoying). Our trip this term to Cadbury World (24th March 2020) has been postponed until further notice.
Homework this half term is focusing on spelling and Maths (especially times tables). Homework is due in on a Wednesday but children may hand it in on the Monday and Tuesday if already completed. Spelling homework will be set weekly and reading is expected at least 5 times a week at home, the reading diaries need to be signed by an adult and this will be monitored weekly.
PE and Swimming:
PE this term is on a Monday. Please ensure the children have correct kit that is also clearly named. Swimming will be on every other week on a Tuesday for 3A, Thursday for 3L and Wednesday for 3T Swimming. Swimming starts again the week beginning 6.1.20.
