Kimberley Primary School, Swingate - Welcome to Our Website

Kimberley Primary School

Rothko Class (Year 3)

Happy 2020!


This term we continue our focus on reading and the children returned from their Christmas break to find our new reading tent up and ready for action.  We have started to enjoy our new class read, 'The Lion. The Witch And The Wardrobe' by C.S. Lewis and our writing this term is based on 'Grandpa's Teeth' by Rod Clement.  


Our 'reading tree' is beginning to look very green, with a leaf being added for every book read by the children this year.  Please continue to support your child's reading by sharing books at home.


In Maths, we are re-visiting addition and subtraction, working up to adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers and finally progressing onto problem solving.


Our Curriculum focus will be 'Languages', within which we explore primarily History based learning, but will also feature elements of RE, Art and Music.  We will also have weekly Science lessons.  A week by week breakdown can be found on the 'Weekly Overview', but please do feel free to ask any questions you may have.


With Drumba every Friday and the Hathersage residential in a couple of weeks, this is going to be a term full of possibilities and fun!

Useful Websites:


There are numerous fantastic websites to help the children support their learning, here are some I would suggest;

Knowledge Organisers

We structure our curriculum teaching around a group of ideas and outcomes that we include in our knowledge organisers. These documents help us plan our lessons and ensure that children are exposed to key ideas and vocabulary.


Further knowledge organisers will be added to this page as the year progresses and we work through curriculum themes.
