Half Termly Overview
Yearly Curriculum Map
This half term, PE will normally take place on Mondays and Thursdays.
Please make sure your child has got a full navy blue, named PE kit at school.
Pick and Mix Project
In Year 3 children are expected to complete at least 3 tasks from the pick and mix grid each half term. These can be found in pupils' red home learning books. Compulsory tasks include Maths, English and RE. Please check the date on the grid for the deadline.
Children should be reading for 10 minutes every day in Year 3. Once they have finished reading their book, they must complete the corresponding quiz on the Accelerated Reader website. Teachers will check reading progress weekly. You can find the link to the Accelerated Reader website below.
Spellings will be set each Tuesday and tested on the following Tuesday. These will be set electronically via The Spelling Shed and a paper copy of the spellings will be send home. Your child should aim to complete at least 5 spelling activities on The Spelling Shed each week. As well as using The Spelling Shed, spellings can also be practised using a range of handwritten methods such as:
- Look, Cover, Write Check
- Rainbow Writing e.g. actual actual actual actual actual
- Waterfall Writing
Each Friday, the children will practise their times tables in the Times Table Mountain Challenge. The levels are as follows:
