Welcome to Year 3 Rowan Class!

Spring 2 Term

This half term the children will taking part in our curriculum project for this year which is called Adrift. 

Our vision for ADRIFT 

We aim to create hope for our children, in a world that has many challenges. Our children will develop a greater understanding of the world and where those  who have been displaced from their homes come from. Children will gain secure geographical knowledge in the context of a human experience and explore the  concept of ‘Home’. Through the work that we do children will be able to form their own views of the  world based on fact and understand why prejudices may occur. Where appropriate they will be able to question things they may read, see or hear in the media. They will be able to engage in conversations with their families, helping to pivot perceptions and break down stereotypes. Our children will be empowered to turn their empathy into action and believe that  they can make a difference in the world.

Our books are My Name is Not Refugee by Kate Milner  and The Silence Seeker by Ben Morley

Our Big Question is : Do people need to talk the same language to be friends?

linked to Article 30 - You have the right to practise your own culture and 

Article 22 - Refugees have the right to special protection.

It would be great if parents and carers can discuss these themes and the big question with the children.

 Useful Information

  • Homework is now given out every half term. Children can choose which homework task suits them and should be brought in every other week as stated on the homework sheet. Any homework tasks completed in the homework book must be completed using pencil and completed to a standard usually expected in a school book. 

  • All children will need the correct PE kit and trainers/pumps for their PE lessons which will now take place on a Tuesday. However, please ensure children always have kit in school in case there is a change of day or an extra session.  During the Spring term 2 we will be doing Dance and the children are learning a Rock n Roll dance.

Reading books and reading records should be brought to school everyday. Please try to listen to your child at home as frequently as possible. The children also each have a Bug Club user ID and password allocated to them where they can read books online. This also enables them to answer interactive comprehension questions which will develop their reading skills further.

The knowledge of the times tables are of high importance to help with other aspects of Maths. Your child will have a weekly times table test. Please ask your child which times table they are currently working on and test away! Let's see whether they can learn them all by the end of Year 3! Times Tables Rockstars is a fun way to practise times tables. The children all have their own log ins for this.  Rewards will be given to those children who move on in their times tables each week.

We will also set tasks on Mathletics where children can compete with other children around the world. Let the class challenge begin!  A free mobile app is now available for tablets and smartphones.

Please make sure your child's school clothes and equipment is clearly labelled to avoid loss.  This includes jumpers, cardigans, PE kits, lunch bags and purses or any pencil cases brought into school.  We would be grateful if you could provide an old shirt or tshirt for your children to use to cover their uniform during Art lessons.
