Year 3

Welcome to Summer Term in Year 3!

Our project title for the summer term is: Why Should we Care about the Rainforest?

For the geography part of our topic, we will start by finding out where the rainforests are located; then we will look at what the climate and the different layers of the rainforest are like; finally, we will explore the life in the rainforest and why it needs protecting.

In history we will look at the Mayans: firstly, we will look investigate the Mayan ruins, then delve deeper by looking at their artefacts; following this we will look at the daily life and religious beliefs of the Mayan people; finally, we will discover how the Maya civilisation came to an end.

To complement our learning we will visit Twycross zoo, to do a workshop on life in the rainforest. To support our learning on the Amazon River, we will go on a river trip we look at where the River Trent meets the Nottingham Beeston canal.

PE in summer term 1 will be on a Wednesday.

PE in summer term 2 will be on a Tuesday.

As ever we love to see the amazing project homework coming in to class. Please remember that your child must complete up to 6 Project Homework tasks over the term in addition to their weekly homework. Please ask if your child needs any help or resources.

Please listen to your child read at least 3 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record. Every time your child reads at home, they will get a stamp on their bookmark. 30 stamps complete a bookmark and they will get a prize from Mrs Salmeron.

Your child will be given a spelling test and a maths madness test every Friday morning, so they need to be practicing these throughout the week. Children receive house points and Dojo’s for full marks in spellings and passing their maths madness test. Your child is given homework – (spellings and a maths madness sheet) every Friday and this will need to be returned to school by the following Friday, if not before.
