Year 3 Curriculum Letter

Welcome back to the new and final term of this academic year! We hope you enjoyed your Easter break. This letter will outline the learning that will take place over the last term in Year 3. We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead.

Homework:Our expectation at Mead is that every child should do the following every night:
15 minutes reading to themselves or an adult and note in the reading record
15 minutes practising spellings
15 minutes rehearsing times tables facts (including multiplication and division)

If children would like to attempt an additional challenge, we have a new Learning Challenge for children to attempt this half of the Summer Term. This is a project based challenge which will have a wide selection of interesting projects that children can choose from, related to the topics we are learning in class. We hope that children will take their time with the challenge and be proud of the work they produce. They should be handed into one of the Year 3 teachers by the end of the half term.

Spellings:Spellings will continue to be given out on Fridays. The children are expected to practise their words every evening. We encourage the children to write their words in sentences on the back of their homework sheet. Their spelling test will take place on Fridays.

Timestables:Please encourage your child to practice their times tables every day. We are focusing on the 3, 4 and 8 timestables. It is expected that children are already secure in their 2, 5 and 10 timestables. Children are required to know ALL of their timestables up to 12 x 12 in Year 4. The Government has put mandatory testing in place so this year group of children will be tested in June 2020.

Curriculum InformationWe have included a summary of the topics which the children will be covering this term. If you have any questions about the topics being covered, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher.
