Closure Resources - Year 3
Weekly Updates for Parents
These are your weekly updates to tell you what we would have been covering each week in each subject category. Hopefully this will help you when thinking about what to cover with your children at home. We have also included an overview of the units that would be covered through the whole of the term in other subjects.
Within the separate web page for each week there is a 'master plan' document listed first - This document contains a summary of the work that is taking place during the week at school, and will also be emailed to you on Friday of the week before. Below the weekly plan on the weekly website page will be any supporting documents. These may be worksheets or activities, templates, tests and answer sheets or documents that provide further guidance or reading material.
Further down this page underneath the weekly updates you can find links to resources categorised by subject area. Some of these may be specifically referenced within the weekly updates, and some of them are more generic resources suitable for your child in a subject or learning area. We may also include fun activities that we have identified that we think are suitable for this age group.
We hope these weekly updates will give you some more guidance as you work with your children at home. If you have any questions or queries, or have difficulty accessing any of the plans or documents then please do contact the teaching team on the email shown below.
The Year 3 Team
Links are below containing viewable versions of all the plans and supporting documents for each week. A web page is also available for anyone experiencing difficulties with the rich visual versions of the weekly pages.
