Year 3 curriculum

Welcome to Year 3 for a new school year and the Autumn term! We are also thrilled to welcome a new member to our Year 3 team- Miss Williams. Miss Williams is the new class teacher for Danube.

This Term our topic is Sweet Treats. All our cross-curricular work will focus on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the history of chocolate. We’re looking forward to having Butterfly Chocolatiers come in to help the children make their very own chocolate treat!

Thank you for all your creative and scrumptious looking models that have been brought in. They look fantastic and will help to make our classrooms inviting and exciting environments in which to learn.

Homework will begin to be given out every Friday and will be take in on the the next Friday, giving the children a whole week to complete the tasks given.

During this term we will continue to send spellings home on a Monday. Ten words will be sent home for the children to practise and they will be tested on these words on a Friday.

Please remember to 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, not just your school book, and we would love to see these recorded in your reading records.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr. Davey and Miss Williams
