Curriculum Year 3

      Power of Persuasion  

 

The children in year 3 will begin this term by receiving a letter from the government proposing to
 
remove the legal age for smoking. This will spark debate amongst the children and make them eager
 
to write a letter of response. The children will research smoking and its health implications before
 
creating posters persuading children not to smoke, followed by writing a reply to the government
 
expressing their concerns. 
 
In science, the children will investigate and learn about plants. They will visit the allotment and select
 
plants to dissect. Back in school, magnifying glasses and tweezers will be used to study these plants
 
before experiments begin on their needs for survival. 
 
To end the term, the children will continue their studies into the Jewish religion. They will research
 
Jewish foods and plan a feast which they will then prepare and enjoy together. 

 

Reading Books, Spellings and Homework

Your child will be given:

 

  • a reading record
  • a reading book
  • a learning journal

The reading record shows how much reading your child is doing at home. 

We expect all children to read for 10 minutes - 3 times a week. You need to write the date, the name

of the  book and what pages they have read with a short comment on how they have done in their

reading record and this needs to be handed in once a week. Books will be changed, ready to be sent

out every Friday.

Each Friday your child will choose a challenge from their #30things grid and will record this in

Wednesday.  

Spellings will now be taught 4 times a week in class. This means that no spelling homework will be

given out.  Additionally, your child will be given Maths homework in the form of a

‘Speedy Spider’ on a Friday.

These activities are very important in helping your child improve at school and we hope you will

support us by helping your child at home.
