Mrs T Millington Y3 Class Teaching Assistant

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Year 3 page.

This year our topics are very exciting and include The Rainforest, Rocks Soils and Fossils and the Ancient Egyptians. We are hoping that the children will be immersed in information and will do research at home which will also help them to write detailed extended pieces of writing containing factual information!

We hope to be able to arrange trips to the Liverpool Museum and partake in a day of adventures with The Forest School!

Every year is an important year at Westvale. We hope that you will encourage your child to complete homework and read regularly at home.

We look forward to a fun and busy year with your children!

Year 3 Curriculum Overview

Music – Home Learning Resources for Parents

Music has an extraordinary power to bring us together, it can lift us when we feel low, energise us when we feel tired and is something we all have in common. So, to help with the rhythms and routines of your new daily life, ‘Out of the Ark’ have released seven songs, one for each day, all with challenges and activities related to each song. They will continue to add new songs and resources over the next few weeks and can be found by following the link below:

DESIGN TECHNOLOGY – HOME LEARNING IDEAS

Design and technology (DT) prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life. The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. Through the study of design and technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts. Design and technology helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators. 

Follow the link below for some fantastic, age appropriate DT ideas to try at home with your child.
