Arrangements for Home Learning Support

 

While we won't be able to directly teach our classes, our students know that we will be checking their progress in Spelling Shed, Oxford Reading and TT Rockstars.

 

Mr Broom and Mr Fischer will be checking their emails daily from 9am-10am and again at the end of the school day, between 2pm-3pm.  We will also be able to send you information, additional work and/or resources via ParentMail.  Please feel free to contact us using the following:

 

 

We welcome any learning-related enquiries and will be pleased to support you as your learner completes their tasks.  You may like to return any finished work via email if completed electonically, or send us a photograph of it if completed on paper.

 

We are very much looking forward to staying in touch with you and supporting our students though this time.

 

Please check out our new Home Learning pages below where you can discover further information.

Year 3  Curriculum for Spring 2020

Creative Curriculum

Topic: Rainforests (Geography and Music focus)

 

We have been learning about the types of rainforests around the world, discovering where they can be found, and why, with a special focus on the Amazon rainforest which provides 20% of the planet's oxygen and contains over 5 million species of animals, plants and insects! 

 

Our Creative Curriculum links well with English, where we have read The Great Kapok Tree and The Vanishing Rainforest to discover which animals live there, and to gain a broader understanding of deforestation and its impact on the global stage.   We encourage children to bring in learning from home to share with the class.

 

We've written letters to Presidents and Prime Ministers about the effects of deforestation on Climate Change and created Travel Guides for a South American country.

 

In the second part of the term, we'll be looking closer at map reading and weather. Additionally, we will have a focus on South American Music,while we investigate Samba, soundscapes, rhythms, graphic scores and dynamics. 

Homework

Homework will be given out every week for Maths and fortnightly for spellings.

 

Maths Homework

Most homework tasks, will link to the current learning in class and so shouldn't be anything the children can't do, albeit with a little support.

 

Homework should be completed in pencil and we encourage our children to keep presentation as neat as their class work books. 

 

There will be times when your child's homework may be different to other's. This is because we aim to give children tasks that they are capable of completing.

 

Maths homework will be given out Friday and expected back the following Wednesday. 

 

 

Spellings

Over the year we will be learning to spell words from the Year 3 & 4 word list, as well as applying spelling rules to groups of words, such as prefixes and suffixes. The children will have two weeks to learn their spellings and will be tested in school every other Monday morning. 

 

This is a list of words that the National Curriculum has produced, for children to be able to spell correctly and use within their writing.
