Year 3 Curriculum - Spring

Year 3 - Curriculum Newsletter
We hope you find this letter informative, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher if you have any questions relating to the curriculum.

Homework:
Our expectation at Broadford is that every child should do the following every night:
  • 5 minutes reading to 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 Worldly Wise challenge for the Autumn Term. There will be more detailed information to follow regarding this.


Spellings:
Spellings will be given out on Mondays. The children should 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. 

Rockstar Times Tables:
Children will be completing their times tables daily in school at the start of each maths lesson. Please practise times tables with your children at home. They all have passwords and access to the Rockstars app or alternatively they could simply practise writing their times tables out. They take part in a ‘Sound Check’ every Friday morning which involves their test taking place.

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

Yours sincerely,

Miss Taylor

Year 3 Leader
