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 will be attached above shortly.


Spring Term Curriculum:

Our theme this half term is “The Rainforest”. The children will be investigating 'Plants' in their Science work, the location of Rainforests in Geography and studying a book called 'The Great Kapok Tree' in English. Our author of the term is SF Said so our VIPERS text is 'Varjak Paw' (which the children have been enjoying).



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 and will be gymnastics. Please ensure the children have correct kit that is also clearly named. We will continue this year to actively take part in the daily mile and as the children enjoyed this extra challenge each day last year.

Swimming will be on every other week on a Tuesday for 3A, Thursday for 3L and Friday for 3T Swimming (3T will be changing swimming days shortly but more information will follow closer to the time). Swimming starts again the week beginning 6.1.20.
