Welcome to the summer term. The children have been working really hard so far throughout Yr3 and we are so proud of their efforts.
This term they will have lots of great activities to look forward to. They will enjoy a sketching day in our local area and will also enjoy weekly sessions as part of an art project called
‘Tackling the Blues’ in conjunction with Everton football club.
See below for the work we will be covering this term.
Geometry: Properties of shape
English: Key texts:
Baba Yaga: Narrative Writing
The Great Kapok Tree
Animals inc Humans: Skeletons and Movement
Animals inc Humans: Health and Nutrition
Come and See: Energy – Choices – Special Places
Art and Design: Inspirational artist Henri Rousseau.
Design and Technology: Structures
Computing: Rainforests – The children will explore rainforests through virtual reality apps.
New PE day is a Tuesday. Children are required to come into school wearing their PE kit. It is really important that the children bring in pumps to wear for gymnastics in the hall and for using apparatus safely.
MFL (Spanish): Musical Instruments
The children will continue to be given spellings every Monday to practise and they will be tested on a Friday.
We encourage children to practise times tables and use TTRS (Times Table Rockstars). The focus will be on 3, 4, 6 & 8 times tables in Yr3. We encourage the children to go on to ‘studio’ as this earns them the most points. We would love for all of our children to get their names onto the rockstar display board!!
The children will continue to be set work on Mirodo. There will be a Maths task and English task set every week. We will be able to monitor their progress online when they submit their work.
We encourage you to please read at home as much as possible with your child. Their books will be changed as and when returned but we do recommend they change their books weekly unless their book is a longer text.
Thank you for your continued support!!
