Our curriculum overview
This is what we will cover this half term.
Year 3 will be going swimming. We will be attending swimming sessions on the following dates:
1st & 15th May, 5th & 19th June, 3rd & 17th July
Your child will need a costume/trunks, a towel and a plastic carrier bag for wet things. If your child has shoulder length hair they will also need to wear a swimming cap.
What about P.E.?
P.E. is on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child does not wear earrings on these days.
Please ensure you have a full kit in school.
Outdoor Kit: Tracksuit or jogging pants, long-sleeved top (any design is fine with myself) and trainers.
All clothing and footwear should be clearly named.
All jewellery must be removed for P.E., long hair must be tied back.
Your child has been given a homework book. Homework will be set as and when required. It will be stuck into your child's book with a date when it is due back into school.
In Year 3 we use the Oxford Treetop reading scheme. It is so important that you listen to your child read each night. Please encourage and support them to read. Asking your child questions about what they have just read really helps them improve their comprehension skills.
Please make sure you record the pages read with your child and sign it. Books are changed regularly and as soon as your child has read a book it can be changed the next day, if they place it on the book changing pile.
In Year 3 we need to be able to recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables (this is in addition to the 2, 5 and 10 tables from Year 2). Please can you make sure your child practices these as they are need in several aspects of Maths.
