Year 3 National Curriculum
The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which our teachers have developed exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills. Please access the document below to learn more about what your child will be taught over the next year at St Mary's.
Homework is reading (at least x3 weekly), spellings and learning facts from our Science and Topic knowledge organisers. We expect the children to read and revise their spellings every night. Spellings will be given out on Friday and will be tested on the following Friday. Knowledge organisers will be uploaded to Google Classroom for each topic and children will be asked to learn these facts. Maths homework will be provided online via Deepening understanding website, parents will be informed of logins when this goes live.
Things to Remember
PE kit – Please send your child in with their P.E kit on Monday. P.E kits need to be kept in school during the week. It can be taken home when it needs to be washed.
School bags – Children need a school book bag for their diary, reading book and homework. Please encourage your child to read every day by signing their diary on a weekly basis.
Stationery – Some children are really keen to use their own pens and pencil cases in school. However, this is not necessary as we provide children with all the stationery that they need.
School uniform – All the children look really smart in their new uniforms which reflect our high standards. Please can we make sure that all uniform is clearly labelled and please ensure earrings are only simple studs. Bracelets and bows in hair are not permitted. An Always badge should be worn at all times.
The Sacramental Programme
The children are about to begin the next stage of the sacramental journey. The children will receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion. We will work with you and the parish to ensure that this year is a happy and holy one. Over the next few weeks the dates for the sacraments will be arranged and we will inform you as soon as possible.
