Our Curriculum 

Autumn 1

This half term our first science topic is Light.

We will be learning about light and dark, how we can protect ourselves from the sun as well as how shadows are formed.

In art we will be studying Vincent Van Gogh looking at the different brush strokes he used and why he chose certain colours. Also we will be recreating our own pieces using his as our inspiration.

Our topic in Geography is Hills, Mountains and Rivers we will be locating these in England and comparing them to other rivers and mountain ranges in Europe.


Please encourage your child to complete their homework.

This will be sent home every Friday with a set piece of homework to be completed and handed in the following Thursday.


Spellings will be sent out every Wednesday and are to be learnt for our spelling test the following Wednesday.

Times Tables

In year 3 your child will be able to access Times Table Rockstars for additional support with their mental recall.

Your child will be provided with a username and password so they can access this at home. We encourage your child to complete the challenges alongside weekly homework. Times tables will also be tested weekly.


PE for both classes in on a Monday and Tuesday.

Please make sure your child has their PE kit with them. This includes plain jogging bottoms or shorts, a plain t-shirt or long sleeved top and trainers or pumps.

Indoor Shoes

Indoor shoes are more important than ever in this wet weather. Please could your child have a pair of pumps or other suitable shoes to change into when inside. This protects carpets and gives their feet a chance to dry if their shoes are wet.

Thank you!
