Year 3 Curriculum Newsletter


Curriculum Newsletter - 8th September 2021

It has been lovely to welcome the children back into school for the Autumn term and the beginning of their KS2 journey. We look forward to meeting you all over the next few weeks.

We have attached the Curriculum Newsletter, which we hope you find informative, if you have any questions please feel free to email the Year 3 team

Headteacher:  Mrs. L. Nicholls

Year 3 - Autumn Curriculum Newsletter 

A warm welcome back to the Autumn term from the Year 3 team!  We hope you find this letter informative; please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions on


Our expectation at Broadford is that every child should do the following every night: 

● 15 minutes reading to themselves or an adult (signed in the reading record) 

● 15 minutes practicing spellings in their spelling book 

● 15 minutes rehearsing times tables facts (including multiplication and division) 

Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars:

Every child has now received their login details for Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars, which means they can access their accounts outside of school. Both websites offer valuable resources that can support your child’s learning in maths so please encourage your child to use them. 


Spellings will be given out on Mondays. The children should practice their words every evening. Spelling books and reading records must be brought in on Fridays, which is also when the weekly test happens. This will be closely monitored.

P.E Lessons

Year 3 will have PE lessons every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure that your child/ren are dressed appropriately as they will be participating in both indoor and outdoor activities. On Wednesdays, the children can come into school wearing their PE kit; white t-shirt, blue/black shorts or tracksuit.

Curriculum Information

We have included a summary of the topics which the children will be covering this term. If you would like to make any suggestions of what you or your child would like to learn in relation to the topics taught, please inform your child’s class teacher. We welcome any suggestions you may have. 

We look forward to meeting you over the next few weeks; please do come and see us if you have any questions at all or alternatively you can email us 

Yours sincerely,
