Year 3





Year 3 topics for the Summer term:

Science: Rocks;  Light.

Geography: Rivers;  Mountains.

PE Days:   Tuesday: Swimming;   Wednesday: (Outdoor PE) 

Homework is given out on Thursdays to be handed in on the following Monday.

Spellings are given out on Thursdays for an initial test on Tuesday, followed by a final test on Thursday.

Children should read their school scheme reading book at least four times a week.

Each read should be recorded in their Reading Journal and signed by parents. Once a book has been completed, children should write a short review about it in their journal.

Times tables should be practised daily by logging onto TTRockstars (login details are on the inside cover of your child’s reading journal), or playing Hit the Button:
