Summer Term Curriculum Letter:


Please see the link below to find out what the children will be learning about towards the end of this term and the summer term.

Home learning during school closure (COVID-19)


Whilst the school closes to many due to the COVID-19 virus, here are the activities we would like you to do at home with your children (expected):

  • Daily reading, spellings and x table practise
  • Stone Age to Iron Age Project- as this is our new history topic, we thought it might be a nice idea to research the topic.  They could create a leaflet or poster with their findings.  If you're feeling creative, the children could make a model (e.g. a round house or Stonehenge) or a replica artefact (e.g. tools or jewellery) plus some facts about the item/s you have made (details in Summer Term Curriculum Letter)
  • Our current English topic is play scripts- write a short play script.  It might be fun for you to dress up as the characters or make puppets and actually put the play on for your family (see Summer Term Curriculum Letter for details)

Here are some suggestions for other things you can do at home:

  • Spend time in the garden- other than gardening, you could look for mini beasts, identify trees or plants, draw pictures
  • Do some cooking
  • Do some crafting activities
  • Play board games or do puzzles and jigsaws
  • Exercise
  • Do yoga or practice mindfulness (we like Cosmic Yoga in school- see link)
  • Investigate how shadows are formed using a torch/lamp and different objects-what happens when you move the object nearer or further away?
  • How are rocks used in and around your home?  What types of rock can you find?
  • Try out some different science experiments (see links)


The main thing is, we want the children to have fun doing the activities you choose.  Hopefully, these will also alleviate boredom should we have to stay at home.  If you remember, take some photos of you doing the activities or show us the results when we're back at school.  We'd love to share and hear about the children's learning adventures at home!  


In the event of closure, you will be sent an email address so that you may contact your child's teacher during school hours with any queries you have about home learning activities.  If you do take photos of your children enjoying their learning at home, feel free email them to us and we will put them on our page of the website.


Below are some links to websites that might help. Also take a look at the Environmental Studies and RE curriculum pages for other activity ideas.

Please take a moment to read this term's curriculum letter.  Thank you.

A busy term...


As we come to the end of Autumn Term, we'd like to say a big well done to the children in year 3.  They have settled in well to life at St Mary's and have worked incredibly hard throughout the term.  Thank you to all of the parents and carers also for your ongoing support.  We couldn't do it without you.


We wish you all a restful Christmas and look forward to seeing you all raring to go in January!


Best wishes from the Year 3 Team

Christmas Decoration Day- Thursday 28th November


A letter was sent out asking for various items needed so that the children can recycle them to make Christmas decorations.  The specific items that Year 3 require are toilet or kitchen rolls (we ideally need one per child) and magazines.  If you could send any our way, that would be great!


Thank you.
