Welcome to Year 3
Our topic this term is Scrumdiddlyumptious. We’re going to enjoy a yummy journey of discovery of fantastic foods! We’ll try different types of bread and fillings to create our own sandwiches. Our topic work will focus on food groups and where food comes from. We’ll also learn about the fascinating discoveries made by the physicist James Lind. In science, we will look at animal homes and why animals live in certain habitats.

This unit aims to look at:
This unit from the Jigsaw scheme solely emphasises the importance of valuing and respecting ourselves and others. Children will start to recognise and appreciates differences among themselves and others by understanding this is what makes us special and unique. As children go through school, they will start to explore how conflict can arise due to noticing such differences and how we can manage situations like this by respecting and communicating with one another in a polite and sensible way. Overall, children are taught the importance of understanding and appreciating that everyone is different.
There is a wonderful website below that is useful for your child and for you as a parent. It has games and information about feelings, health, illnesses and sections on body image, mental health and much more. There is also a section for you, the parent, to refer to for information on the school nurse and it shows local Solihull support services.
