Year 3


Our topic is ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ and for Science we will look at rocks, forces and magnets. In History we will focus on Stone Age to the Iron Age, we will look at the main events and broaden our understanding. This will be linked to Geography, Art and Design Technology. As we move closer to Easter we will look at why this is an important event for all Christians. In Computing E-Safety continues to be a whole school priority and we will explore the concept of how we can contact people safety.


We will be having 2 sessions of PE a week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts will be advisable, as the weather gets colder.



Homework – homework will be on Tuesdays. Children will receive one piece of either literacy or numeracy plus spellings each week based on something they have been learning in class that week. It is expected that children spend 30 minutes on homework and hand in what they have done on a Monday. Children are now old enough to be responsible for their homework, so it is their responsibility to get it in on time. If you wish to comment on homework, this is always appreciated especially if they found an aspect of it difficult.

Reading at home – it is essential that children read at home every night, even when they are fluent readers, as it helps them to understand phrasing and punctuation in
Literacy. If you still have last year's Reading Record book please can you ask your child to bring it in. Please try to remember to fill this in if you read with your child.
