Year 3 Curriculum

Welcome to Spring Term 2022.

Our curriculum will continue to have lots of Reading, Writing and Maths opportunities and we are excited to start the New Year with our topic ‘Inventions and Discoveries’ during which we will learn about renewable energies in the Yorkshire and Humber region. We are planning a fieldtrip this term to help to consolidate our learning about energies of the future and other exciting inventions. As part of this topic, we will be creating models from recycled materials and designing and making our very own wind turbines.

Thank you to everyone who created models over the holiday. They are being displayed in the classrooms.

Homework will be issued every Friday. Please encourage your child to attempt all the questions each week.

We will continue to send spellings home each week on Mondays. Ten words will be sent home for the children to practise and they will be tested on these words on Fridays.

Please encourage your child to read at home at least 3 times per week in order to receive their Regular Reader stamp. Remember that reading any book is fantastic and we would love to see these recorded in your reading records as well.

Well done to everyone who earned their Ready Steady Read certificate last term. Wheeler’s Reading Bingo Challenge begins this January.

This term, PE will take place outside if the weather permits. Please send your child with an outdoor kit (long sleeves) and suitable footwear. The kit can stay in school.

PE days – Tuesday – 3C                                Wednesday – 3J

Merits will be awarded each week, so keep an eye out for a special certificate coming home with your child.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your child’s teacher.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Jennings and Miss Clegg
