 Tymor Y Haf/ Summer Term  

As we enter our final term in Year 3 our first topic is linked to our whole school 'Our World Week'. Year 3 will be learning all about the country of New Zealand. We will be looking at the location of New Zealand, the Maori culture and language, landscapes in New Zealand, famous artwork and also learning our very own Haka routine!

Following on from this, our new topic for the remainder of the summer term is 'Wanderlust', where we will be looking at different journeys. As part of this topic we will look at journeys on both a local and global scale, why people make specific journeys, transport and the environmental effect of different journeys.

We have lots of fun activities for this topic and also look forward to hearing what the children would like to find out and the activities they would like to complete.

Throughout the term, children will be developing their Language skills through our topic work and linked to our class text 'Journey' by Aaron Becker

Children will continue to participate in weekly Spelling and Guided Reading sessions. Weekly spelling tests will be sent home on a Monday, we would appreciate you support in helping your child to learn their spellings in preparation for the following Monday. Reading books are sent home on a Friday and should be returned when completed. 

   Remember to keep a look out on our SeeSaw app to see what we have been up to in our lessons!

Homework 

Weekly spelling tests will be sent home on a Monday, we would appreciate you support in helping your child to learn their spellings in preparation for the following Monday. Reading books are sent home on a Friday and should be returned when completed. Please can we ask that reading books be brought back on a Monday/Tuesday of any given week (when the book is complete). 

Here is the Homework grid for the Summer term. Please complete the Language, Literacy and Communication tasks weekly as well as the Mathematics and Number activities. Choose two other activities to complete and upload a picture of your work to Seesaw by Monday 4th July 2022.

 PE sessions/ Kit/ Forest school 

Children in Year 3 will take part in Cross Country and Orienteering sessions during this half term.  

Year 3 P.E. sessions will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.

 On your child’s P.E. day, we are asking that they come to school in their kit. 
Whilst we understand that earrings need to be left in for a number of weeks following the initial piercing, we would appreciate your support in ensuring that, following this period of time, earrings are removed. Please provide your child with plasters/tape to cover earring during PE lessons if your child cannot remove them yet.

We are also hoping to visit the forest area during the term and we will communicate with you when such sessions are due to take place, to ensure that the pupils come to school prepared, in the appropriate attire.
