Year 3 Topics
Year 3 will start this academic year focusing on the 'Food Glorious Food' topic in which we will study the technology of food, the growing, sourcing, cooking, preparing, seasonality of food and look where our food comes from. This will be followed by our 'Egyptian' topic which will investigate ways of preserving food and using colour and texture to create art work and understanding ways of life from this ancient civilisation. We will finish the year studying The Stone Age and it's legacy upon modern day Britain.
English: we will be exploring traditional tales, information texts and poems. The children will also learn about subordinating conjunctions, adverbial phrases and how to write statements, questions, exclamations and commands.
Maths: we will continue formal methods of addition and subtraction and we will also develop our understanding of Multiplication and Division. We be learning to recall our division and multiplication facts.
For our topic: we be finishing our 'Food Glorious Food' topic by exploring farming and identifying the positive and negative effects on our world. As well as making and planning our own meals using as few 'food miles' as we can.
For a more detailed overview, please see the curriculum overview at the bottom of this class page.
Alternating Maths and English homework will be sent home every week on a Friday and then marked the following Wednesday. Please remind your child to bring in their Homework book every Wednesday so new English or Maths sheets can be stuck in!
Spellings will be handed out every week on a Tuesday. Children will be given 10 spellings to learn and a spelling test will take place every Tuesday.
In addition to this set homework, each week your child should read aloud for about 10 minutes most days and their reading record books and bookmarks signed. Please could you (or encourage your child to) write the number of pages they have read so that we can keep a record for our class reading competition.
It is vital to encourage your child to learn their times tables. By the end of Year 3, all children must be able to recall their multiplication and division facts for the 3x, 4x and 8x tables in addition to the 2x, 5x and 10x tables that they would have learnt by the end of Year 2.
PE will take place on a Monday PM with Mr Boardman and Wednesday PM with the class teacher. Due to the current situation, both PE sessions will take place outdoors, and for ease, we will allow children to come to school wearing their PE kits - please ensure the correct kit is worn by the children. Earrings and watches must be removed prior to each PE lesson.
