Welcome to Year 3!
How Do Plants Grow?
Our topic in year 3 is 'How Do Plants Grow?'. This is a science based topic looking how plants grow, especially how water is transported and how pollination occurs. For more information, please see the topic overview below.
P.E & Swimming
Year 3S' P.E. is on a Wednesday and Thursday and they go swimming on a Wednesday morning. It is important that children have their full P.E and swimming kit on these days. Please make sure all sports kits are named to avoid any confusion in the changing rooms.
There will be an opportunity for children in year 3 to read everyday. It is therefore essential that children bring their reading books and diaries with them every day to help track their progress.
Everybody in Year 3 will be given a list of spellings each week based on the spelling rule they have been learning, as well as some common exception words.
The children will be tested on 5 of these words, chosen at random, and then will be expected to spell some of the other words correctly as part of a given sentence. This will help the children to understand how these spellings can be used correctly in writing.
