Year 3 Curriculum Letter – Summer 2 Term

Dear parents and carers,

Welcome to the final half term of the year. We hope that you had a restful half term break and enjoyed some of the jubilee celebrations.

Curriculum

This half term, in English lessons, the children will start off by completing a week of comprehension skills. We will then move onto diary writing and explanation texts. In maths, we are continuing learning about time and will then move onto weights and measures. In science, we are learning about plants. In geography this half term, we will be learning about the local area and its human and physical geography with the focus on the question –  How is our local area changing?

In R.E, we will be continuing looking at what it means to belong to a religion with an emphasis on Hinduism. In our computing lessons, we will be using the animation program J2animate. In art, we will be focussing on paint and different techniques. Our PSHE topic will be mainly focussing on relationships and sex education. Please note that next Thursday (16.6.22) there will be an opportunity for all parents and carers to see the resources we will be using. We will also be using our PSHE sessions to prepare the children for the transition into Year 4.

As part of our P.E. sessions, the children will be focussing on athletics and tennis. Every child must have a P.E. kit in school that comes in on a Monday and goes home on a Friday to be washed. As the weather starts to get warmer, it is vital that children have a PE kit that they can change into for lessons for hygiene reasons. P.E. kits should consist of a top, shorts, trainers or plimsolls and if the weather is cold, jogging bottoms or leggings and a long-sleeved top.

Homework

Just like last half term, homework will continue to be set on a Thursday and is due back the following Tuesday. We are using Google Classroom to set homework and you will have previously received a letter with your child’s login details. If you are having any issues with Google Classroom, please speak to your child’s class teacher. If your child is not completing the work online or having any issues, they can use their homework books and bring this in on the Tuesday to be marked by their class teacher. Children will still be using Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars for maths homework. Each child will receive spellings each week, which they will be tested on the following week. In addition, there will also be a written or alternative task linked to what they have been learning about during the week.

If your child requires any support with their homework, please speak to your child’s class teacher.

Please ensure your child brings in their reading books and reading records into school each day.
