Year 3 curriculum
Spring Term 2019
This term, we will be looking at Fantasy and Mystery stories using a visual stimulus called ‘Something Fishy’. It would be really good for the children to read some fantasy and mystery stories of their own to begin to understand the structure of these genres. We will then move onto information texts and language plays. In guided reading, we will continue to focus on our reciprocal reading texts twice weekly. We will be looking at using new ways to comprehend and understand a text.
This term, we will be focusing on a range of mathematical areas, including:
We will be continuing to learn about light and dark, focusing in particular on shadows and how light travels through different materials.
This term, we will be developing our word processing skills. We will also be learning about how to be safe online.
Our topic is Ancient Egypt and it includes how they communicated, religious beliefs, the pyramids and culture. We are hoping to have an Ancient Egyptian Day towards the end of the Spring term!
We will be learning about rivers and the water cycle. We will think about how rivers are useful and how they have changed their shape and landscapes over the years.
Art and DT
To start the term off, we will be looking at the artist Seurat and Pointillism. After half term, our DT topic will be all about packaging.
For indoor PE, we will be learning how to use different balances, travelling and varieties of jumps in Gymnastics using apparatus. After half term, we will be doing some dance to link with our Ancient Egyptian theme. In outdoor PE, we will be participating in net and wall games and striking and fielding.
After February half term, Mrs Jones will be teaching the children how to play the recorder. We have enough recorders for everyone, but if anyone has their own at home, then you are welcome to bring them in for these sessions.
In RE this term, the children will be learning about Rules and Routines, beginning with what rules and routines they have at home and at school. They will then look at how rules affect different religions.
Our theme for this term is Health and Wellbeing where we will focus on school rules for health and safety, who the children can trust and how they can take care of their bodies. We will also be looking at the differences between risk, danger and hazard. After half term, we will be looking at relationships, personal space and how people feel and working collaboratively.
