Year 3 Curriculum Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,
Year 3 - Curriculum Newsletter
Welcome back to the new academic year! 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:
  • 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 Autumn Term. All of the activities are based around a significant person, poem or painting relating to our topics. Children do not have to attempt every activity but instead select the activities that they are most interested in and compile a project that reflects the extra time and effort that they have put into their challenge. We hope that children will take their time with the challenge and be proud of the work they produce they should hand this into their teacher at the end of the half term.

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. Children in Read, Write, Inc groups could have their spellings given out and tested on different days.
Rockstar Times tables:
Children will be completing their timestables daily in school at the start of each maths lesson. Please practise timestables with your children at home.

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 Mr Nicol
Sequoia Class Teacher Hazel Class Teacher
