YEAR 3 & 4 CURRICULUM
Spring Term Learning Challenge Curriculum
Why is Yorkshire such a cool place to live?
This geography based topic will provide children with opportunities to name and locate counties and cities within the United Kingdom and continuing to link it to our learning about Saltaire. In addition, we will:
- Identify human and physical characteristics of a variety of places
- Locate and name some of the main rivers in the UK
- Understand how the industrial Revolution changed geographical features over time
Year 3 will be finishing their topic - What do rocks tell us about the way the Earth was formed? They will move on to ‘How did that blossom become an apple?’ In this Year 3 Science topic, we will identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants including the roots, stem, leaves and flowers. In addition, we will explore what plants need to grow, how water is transported through plants and the importance of flowers in the lifecycle of a plant including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.

Homework and Reading
There is an expectation that your child completes at least three twenty minute reading sessions a week at home. This can be independent, reading to an adult, on Bug Club or a mixture of reading and book discussion with an adult.
In addition to this, the children will know from their maths lessons which times table they need to practise and they need to do this at home twice a week. For the completion of the above tasks, children will be awarded three stars.
The link to home work for this half term may be found above. The tasks are purposefully simplistic to allow the children to direct their own learning and whilst parental support is encouraged, the work must be completed by the child. Please do not feel that you should go to extra effort or spend hours on these tasks; the children can complete as much or as little work on the chosen topic as they would like to do. We would like to ensure they enjoy these tasks and learn something new!
The homework diary can also be used as a means of communication between yourself and your child's teachers. Teachers will sign diaries every week and we ask that you also sign the diary weekly.
