Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

 

 

Key Information

PE this term will take place on Friday afternoons.  Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit at all times and that they remove all jewellery for these lessons.  We expect all children to be able to remove their own jewellery (including earrings) by themselves and long hair must be tied up.

Swimming will take place on Tuesday mornings.

Our topics for this term are ‘The Stone Age to the Iron Age’ (History), 'Our World' (Geography) and ‘Forces and Magnets’ and ‘Animals including humans’ (Science). In English we will be carrying out work based on Roald Dahl and his books and 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.

Please consult our Autumn 2017 Curriculum Newsletter for more details about the topics covered. 

 

News

This term we are looking forward to a trip to the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden to learn more about the famous author and the things that inspired him to write, as well as a visit from Boudicca, queen of the Celtic Icini tribe, to help us with our learning in History. We are also hoping to visit a local supermarket to research where some of the different food that we eat comes from. 

We look forward to seeing you at Parents’ Evening and at our Everdon information evening in November.

Home Learning

Year 3 homework expectations are as follows:

Maths - Please refer to the Year 3 Home Learning sheet.

Reading - Your child will read in a small guided reading group with a member of the Year 3 team once every week. At the end of this session they will be set some further reading to complete as homework and as they progress on to reading chapter books, they will also be set an additional task.

Spellings - Our weekly spelling lesson takes place on a Monday.  During this lesson the children will be tested on the words that they were given to learn the previous week and given new spellings to take home and learn.  

Creative Homework -This is to be based on our Science and Humanities topics (see above).
