Welcome to Year 3 - We hope you find this information helpful.
This half term the children will learn all about Healthy Eating and the way food and nutrition is used as part of a healthy lifestyle. Our work will include learning all about different food groups and what these do for our bodies. We hope parents will encourage the children to find out all abut the food they eat at home through things like planning healthy meals and looking at food packaging labels.
In using Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the children will explore instructional texts in order to create simple recipes for healthy snacks. If parents have their own 'healthy' recipes for snacks it would be brilliant to send these in with the children. We hope as part of our Design Technology work to design our own healthy snack items such as healthy bars and biscuits.
As it is so crucial that children are taught about Internet Safety we will be covering the basics of good internet searching and link our searches to the other subjects we are studying. We hope that parents will encourage this at home by making sure all internet security packages are up to date and that children are always supported in their use of the internet at home.
