Our topic at the start of the year is New Beginnings and will allow us all time to get used to each other and life at the Chandler. After half term we will look at life from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will have a visitor who comes into school and shares different artefacts, games and information about this long period of history with the children. Our science topic Light and Shadow in the first half of the Autumn term and then Animals including Humans in the second half.
When we reach the Spring Term, our topic is geography-based and is called ‘Where we live’. We begin by studying our local area and widening out to the whole of the United Kingdom.
Our Summer Term returns to a historical focus in topic as we look at the next stage of the chronological timeline – The Romans. One half of the term will look at The Romans in Rome and the other half of the term will examine their legacy in Britain. Our science topic this term will be about Plants and Growth.
Year 3 maths is guided by the Surrey White Rose maths curriculum. This supports a mastery curriculum where each component of maths is given sufficient time for children to practise their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills.
Year 3 PE, PSHE & music will take place on Monday afternoon and the second PE session will take place on Wednesday morning. Please ensure children always have their labelled PE kit in school with them.
Homework will be set on Friday and is due back the following Wednesday. Please could you ensure that reading at home happens at least five times a week and that you sign homework diaries to show this has taken place.
