Term 1

Glorious Greeks

This term our topic is Ancient Greece. In History the children will be learning all about the different periods of Ancient Greek history, how we can use artefacts and stories to find out about Ancient Greece, daily life in Ancient Greece and the birth of the Olympics. In Geography they will be finding out about the landscape and climate of Greece and how that influenced the development of Ancient Greece.. See the Knowledge Organiser below for all the things that children will be learning.

 

Our book for this term is Theseus and the Minotaur by Philippos Mandilaras

P.E:

 

P.E is now two days a week for both classes: on Tuesday (Football) and Friday (Swimming).

 

Children should wear P.E. kit (white t-shirt and black tracksuit or leggings), green jumper if it is cold) on PE days. For swimming, children need to bring a swimming costume and towel in a bag.

 

Children should also bring a water bottle to school so that they do not have to leave a lesson when they get thirsty.

Homework:

Children will be provided with weekly homework. This may include maths based activities, writing activities and/or other activities relating to the curriculum. Home reading books are also being sent home. Please return these as soon as they have been read (alongside a comment on their home reading record) so that a new book can be given out. It is expected that parents or carers will read with their children at least 3 times a week for 10 minutes or more.

Year 3 Red Bus Book Challenge

 

Below is the Year 3 book Red Bus challenge. We'd love to see the children each read as many of these as they can during the year- this is a challenge and there will be prizes for those who read the most! Many of them are quite quick reads and are full of colourful pictures, so are ideal if your child finds reading a struggle. There are also some longer books for faster readers. The books have been carefully chosen because we love them, and we are sure the children will too!

All books are available in school but due to having limited numbers of some we do ask that any which are borrowed are returned quickly. We also encourage all home books to be returned on a daily basis so that we can keep a record of how much your child is reading at home. Any reading you can do with them really does help them so much.

Other information:

Please ensure that children do not bring unnecessary items to school. Ideally, children should only bring the following items to school: 

Coat

Fruit or vegetable for healthy snack at play time

Lunch box 

Water bottle

Home reading book
