Learning Expedition: Spring 2020
Have a look at what we get up to in Year 3. Below you will find a ‘Snap Shot’ of what to expect throughout the year, including information about our Research Projects and extra curricular activities.
Please look at our Research Project Plans to see what we get up to, and the special books that we use to accompany each topic.
Tribal Tales…The story of Stone Age Boy
Tremors…The Firework Maker’s Daughter
Urban Pioneers…A Library Service Book Choice
Mighty Metals… The Iron Man
Predator…A Library Service Book Choice
Gods & Mortals… Usborne Greek Myths for Young Children
Urban Pioneers & Mighty Metals
We will be exploring graffiti art, studying Liverpool life in the past, and looking at important places and monuments in Liverpool. Then we will move onto investigating magnetism and the properties of metal.
Predator! & Gods and Mortals
During these topics the children will learn all about food chains and habitats, then discover a world of mythical creatures and legendary heroes.
Children in 3IH and 3SDS have PE on a Wednesday. Children must wear a full Malvern Primary School P.E uniform. This includes:
White T-shirt (plain white or white with Malvern badge)
- Green shorts
- Black / grey pumps
Children should have their P.E kit in school everyday. Both classes might squeeze in a second PE lesson sometime during the week if the timetable permits..
Reading and Homework
Try to encourage your child to read 4 times a week (they need only be 10 minutes sessions if your child becomes tired). Please try to make a comment about your child’s reading. Journals should be brought in everyday, even if the children haven’t had a chance to read the night before.
Children will be given spellings and tables tests on a Friday. They will practice these during the week in preparation for their test the following week.
Maths and handwriting homework will also be given weekly.
Other topic based homework will be handed out half termly. In Year 3 we would rather see the children produce one special high quality piece of work to do with each topic per half term.
