Trewirgie Junior School

Our topic for Summer Term 2024 is......

'How does your garden grow?'

This term, Year 3 will be asking: ‘How does your garden grow?’ We will start by investigating the parts of a plant and what plants need to grow, before using this knowledge to grow some plants of our own. We will also learn about the lifecycle of a plant. In Art, we will be focussing on drawing skills and creating our own sketches of insects and minibeasts. Our DT focus this term will be food. We will be thinking about hygiene and safety when preparing food and we will explore the taste, texture and smell of lots of different ingredients. We will also be looking at where food comes from, with a trip to Trevaskis farm.  We will then use our skills to design and make our own sweet or savoury salad. As part of our geography, the children will be looking at and comparing two different local environments. We will create our own sketch maps of the local areas, labelling key features of each environment. In science, we will learn that bees have an important part to play in maintaining our planet. We need them to pollinate the food we need to survive and many of the trees and flowers that provide habitats for lots of other wildlife. For our legacy, we will be making and selling wildflower bee bombs to help save the lives of these vital insects.


Home Learning 

Every three weeks the children will be introduced to a new home learning challenge. These will be shared with you on Class Dojo. Each question will have a range of suggestions as to how they can share their understanding of each. They can select any way of demonstrating their understanding.


Across the term we hope that your child is curious enough to extend and deepen their learning and understanding further. Every three weeks certificates are awarded for work that shows innovation, creativity, depth of learning or original thinking.  


Please share any of their work on Class Dojo or bring into school with them.
