 Topics & Themes for the Year - Year 3 Summer 2

Creative Project – Year 3- Summer 2

Light

Dear Parents,

Year 3’s next creative project is linked to our Science topic ‘Light’. Please could you read through the ideas with your child and support them to complete 2 of the projects. Please can you send the work into school by Friday 12th July.

Make a light chart- recording the sunset and sunrise each day for a fortnight (remember the longest day of the year is June 21st)

 

Research places in the Arctic Circle (where it is dark all of winter and light all of summer)

Write a poem about light/ the sun and how it makes you feel. Use your senses to help.

 

Investigate the phases of the Moon

Create a poster about the sun (what it is made of, how it works and other interesting facts)

Go to the library and look at different books about light/ sun e.g. non-fiction books. Write / draw some of your findings.

 

Draw some artwork or create a collage inspired by the sun or moon.

 

Compose some music/ a song or create a dance about the sun to perform to the class.

Chalk around your shadow in the morning, at lunch and then in the afternoon. What happens to it? Draw a picture or record your findings.

 

Or … choose an activity of your choice linked to light.

 Year 3- Summer 1

Year 3 are continuing swimming lessons on Thursday’s in Summer 1 so please continue to bring your kits to school.

Year 3 enjoyed designing and making their healthy sandwiches. They were asked to design a healthy sandwich- not just a sandwich they would like to eat! Below are some photos of their creations.

  

In Spring 2 3 children took part in a Spelling Bee competition. They were superb competitors and narrowly missed winning the competition. The children were such good spellers it went to a tie break using Year 5/6 words. Huge congratulations to the girls for their achievement.

 

Below are the spelling lists for the next half term. Please help your child to learn the correct spellings each week. These words have been chosen from the Year 3 / 4 spelling curriculum. This half terms focus is suffixes. They will be tested in school on a Thursday.

 

 

 Homework will be given out on a Monday every week apart from the week before a holiday. Maths you will find online on activelearning.co.uk. Times tables practise will be given weekly. Spellings will also be given on a sheet for the half term and these will be tested on Thursday. Across the year the children will be given the opportunity to complete some Home

 

Learning Projects. More information about these will be given at a later date.

 

If your child is taking part in the Sacramental Programme this year, you will be contacted by your parish in the near future. This is an important and wonderful part of Year 3 and something that we hope many of the children will take part in.

Punctuality and attendance is of great importance and therefore please ensure your child is on time for school every day as lateness does disrupt learning opportunities. Please ensure your child is in school ready to start lessons by 8.55am.

 If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child please feel free to approach us at the end of the day. If neither of us are available, or this is not convenient for you, then please make an appointment via the school office.

 We look forward to working with both you, and your child, and hope between us we can make it a happy and enjoyable year.
