Year 3 Curriculum

Welcome to Year 3.

Our curriculum will continue to have lots of Reading, Writing and Maths opportunities and we are excited to start the new school year with our topic “Sweet Treats” during which we will explore chocolate production and find out about the local firm Needlers. We will launch our topic with “Ecuador Day” in the first week.

Thank you to everyone who created the fantastic, giant sweets over the holiday. They are being displayed in the classrooms.

Homework will be issued every Friday on Microsoft Teams. Your child will bring their log in details home. If you have any questions about using Teams, please speak to your child’s class teacher.

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.

PE kits will be issued in school.

PE days – Wednesday – 3J                                Thursday – 3C

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
