Autumn Term 2017

I’m A Mayan: Get Me Out Of Here!

Values – Hope and Peace

Throughout the Autumn term, children will travel to the rainforests of the world.
We will discover how the rainforest is formed, what creatures live there, the
conditions of these tropical areas and how the rainforest helps us live our lives.
We will learn about the Mayan culture and take the opportunity to taste and
cook with foods from these exotic regions of the world.

Spring Term 2018

Heads and Tudor Tales!

Values – Respect and Forgiveness

Throughout the Spring term, children will explore the life, times and adventures
of Tudor explorers. Alongside this, children will be given the opportunity to write
creatively and take inspiration from stories such as The King’s Promise.

Summer Term 2018

Veni! Vidi! Vici!

Values – Community and Faith

Throughout the Summer term, children will investigate the history and geography
of Roman Britain. We plan to inspire the children through exposure to real life
artefacts and exploration of the Roman world around us.

Home Learning in Year 3

Maths – each week children will be required to complete a short series of maths problems that encourage them to use a variety of their maths skills. When completing maths tasks, children should be encouraged to show their workings.
Maths home learning will be set on a Friday and due on a Wednesday.

English – each week children will be required to read a short text and answer questions about the text that show their understanding and develop their comprehension skills. When completing English tasks, children should be encouraged write in full sentences.
English home learning will be set on a Wednesday and due on a Monday.

Reading – children should be encouraged to read as many times as possible per week, with a minimum requirement of at least 3 times per week. Please ensure that this is logged on their reading records.

*Further information about our new and exciting approach to reading at school will be released soon!*

Times Tables – it is expected that children practice their times tables as often as possible and we would encourage the use of tablet apps and games to assist with this, especially DoodleMaths.

Weekly Spellings

In Year 3, children will be learning their spellings at school so will no longer be taking spellings home to practice. Children will participate in Spellings Workshops four times each week and will work in groups that provide an appropriate level of challenge for them. Teaching of spellings and spelling patterns will follow a pattern of: Teach; Practice; Apply; Test. If you have any questions about this new approach to spellings, please see a member of the Year 3 teaching team.
