Class Curriculum

Welcome to Year Three

Second half term 2019

Strap yourselves in as we have an action-packed half term up ahead! The children need to use all of their ‘Building Learning Powers’ as they continue their exciting journey in Year Three leading up to the festive period.

Class text- This half term, the children will be reading ‘The Iron Man’. It’s a cracking story filled with action, twists, turns and cliff-hangers!!

Topic- Our topic this half term is incredibly exciting. It’s called ‘Cracking Contraptions!’ For more details, see the curriculum overview. The children will be learning about how a range of contraptions work. From looking under the bonnet of a car to bike maintenance the children are in for treat!

Writing- In writing this half term, the children will be writing a ‘defeat the baddie’ tale, a persuasive leaflet and some festive Christmas haiku poems. Stay tuned and look on the website regularly as we will be performing a story for your viewing pleasure!

Maths- In maths this half term, the children will be learning about:

  • Multiplication
  • Length
  • Mass
  • Volume

Home Learning- We will be continuing to set home learning via the school website as it more environmentally friendly and a more efficient way of communicating. Your child will be required to:

  • read daily
  • learn five spellings (taken from the statutory framework) each week ready to be tested on Friday
  • times tables each week ready to be tested on Friday
  • learn the model text which will help your child with their writing.

Home learning can have a significant impact on your child’s progress; therefore we advise that you frequently check the website for information.

Physical Education- PE in Year Three is taught on a Friday. As British weather can be unpredictable, we advise that your child has their PE kit in every day.

If you have any questions or queries, do not hesitate to contact me via email (t.prior@southill.dorset.sch.uk). You can also come and speak to me after school or leave a message at the office.
