Year 3's Learning Challenge - Spring 1

We are delighted to provide you with the Year 3 Learning Challenge for this half of the Spring Term.

This learning challenge, among other things, gives the children the opportunity to explore their new scientific topic in more detail by learning all about a significant scientist in the field of “light” (Sir Isaac Newton). It is entirely up to your child whether they select the poem, significant person, music or painting, or a combination of all 4. They can also select the activities that they want to attempt, though we would encourage them to be ambitious and to deepen their learning as much as possible. 

Although the Learning Challenge is entirely optional, and is in addition to the daily expectation of 15 minutes’ reading, 15 minutes’ times tables rehearsal and 15 minutes’ spellings practice, we have found that a large proportion of children have voluntarily taken up the challenge and have gained a great deal from it. We would therefore greatly appreciate your encouragement to participate. The children will receive a special Learning Challenge certificate at the end of the half term on completion of a project that shows a significant level of effort and challenge undertaken.

Should you have any problems regarding this, or any other issue, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support, and look forward to working with you this academic year.

Year 3 topics this half term:
Science – Light
Topic - Volcanoes & Earthquakes
