year 3 Curriculum
Please download our termly curriculum documents here for more information about what we will are learning and to see examples of our work.
Wednesday: Forest School
Our P.E. slots will be both indoors and outdoors therefore please could the children have an indoor P.E. kit and outdoor P.E. kit in school all week. We will be having indoor P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon and outdoor P.E. on Thursday afternoon. Indoor P.E kit should include a pair of black shorts, a white t-shirt and pumps. Outdoor P.E. kit should include a pair of black joggers or leggings, a white t-shirt, a jumper and trainers. Please note that jewellery, other than small ear studs, should not be worn to school and to prevent injury all earrings should be removed for P.E. Children with long hair will need a hair tie for P.E. Please click on the Forest School link for more information regarding outdoor clothes for this activity.
The children will be given homework each week on a Friday to be returned by the Wednesday of the following week. The homework will usually consist of a Maths task, English task, Spellings and Times Tables. Occasionally the children maybe asked to find out information for a Science or History topic. It is very important that children complete homework tasks and please try to develop their independence with this. If your child finds any particular task really challenging and you have had to give a lot of support, please write a comment on the sheet/page.
Library Day - Thursday
Each child will be heard reading each week, we expect reading books to be in school every day so this is possible. The children also have sessions where they read other texts as a class and in partners. Their progress and understanding will be greatly improved if you hear them read for 10 minutes each day and discuss what they have read with them.
It is important that the children not only read the words, but understand the meaning of the words. Please complete their reading journal to reflect the practise being done at home. Please note: We do not have a designated day for changing books. The children can change their school reading book once an adult has signed their reading record to show that the book has been completed.
I hope this information is useful and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask or send a message on Dojo.
