This term our project is called ‘Watering Can.' Throughout the project, children will identify the parts of a plant and the various functions of these parts, recognising the importance of each one. Through their own experimentation, children will understand the best growing conditions for plants and will then produce “How To” guides for a kids gardening magazine, which details how to provide plants with the best care possible. The children will consider how insects can support a plant’s reproductive cycle. Following this, the children will design and make a bug hotel. Finally, after planting their seeds and nurturing them indoors, the children will plant them outside, with labels and the correct conditions to thrive. We will then write an email to a school governor inviting them to come and visit our garden.
The Home Learning sheet can be found in the Home Learning section of the website.
- The children will also receive weekly spellings. Spellings will be put into your child’s diary every Friday to be tested on the following Thursday.
- We also ask that you please read with your child at least 4 times a week and sign your child’s home school diary. If children read four times, they will receive a raffle ticket to be put into a prize draw. The raffle will be drawn at the end of term.
- Lastly, we ask that you regularly use Times Table Rock Stars with your children at home. This online resource will support children with learning their times tables.
If any children in Year 3 are self-isolating , in the first instance, please log in to Google Classrooms. This will be updated to reflect the learning in school. Please also continue with reading and learning times tables, using Oxford Reading Buddy and Timestables Rockstars to support with this.
