Welcome to Year 3

Free eBook for all of Year 3

 

How to NOT go to School

 
 

This is a lovely, free book written by Mr. Forde, a Y3/4  teacher, to help children come to terms with school shutdown.

 

"Parsley Mimblewood is a home-schooled kid who sees herself as something of an expert on 'How to NOT go to School'. The story follows her daily whimsical adventures along with her 11 animals and 7 imaginary friends. Each chapter explores an issue that might be weighing on children’s minds at the moment such as missing friends, dealing with emotions and feeling cooped up."

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 through this time.

 

Home Learning

Year 3  Curriculum for Summer 2020

Topic: Through the Ages (History and DT Focus)

 

Our Summer Topic covers prehistory through to the Norman Conquest!

 

We start with discovering the Palaeolithic era, moving into the Mesolithic (Middle Stone) Age, and into the Neolithic (New Stone) Age.

 

Our learners will investigate how early man survived, including why they travelled.  We look at how Stone Age mankind discovered new ways of doing things, like farming, to facilitate settlements in the New Stone Age; villages and forts in the Bronze Age and built fortresses and weapons in the early Iron Age.

 

Our Creative Curriculum links well with English, where we will read Stone Age Boy and investigate Stig of the Dump to inspire writing tasks.  In DT, we have a couple of hands-on projects as outcomes of our investigation and discoveries, design and build a model Stone Age settlement, for example.

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.
