Welcome to Year 3!

Class teacher: Miss Hill 

A typical day in Year 3:

Each day starts with reading. This is either a group book or a choice book.

First up in our lessons is normally reading. This consists of a range of questions, based on a text that we will have studied together. We follow the VIPERS scheme. 

Next, is English. We cover a range of genres including poetry and descriptive writing.  

After break, is a quick Mental Maths, working on key skills and mental speed in calculating. Following this, is our main session. We work through a range of activities, focussing on fluency, problem solving and reasoning.  

In English and Mathematics in Year 3, we follow the National Curriculum. 

In the afternoon, we explore the wider curriculum, including Science, History, Geography, Languages, P.E. and Art.

In Science, this year we will be learning about light and shadows, forces, the changing world, plants, rocks and bodies and the foods that keep those bodies healthy.

In our humanities topics this year, we will explore a broad sweep of early history, through looking at the materials that defined it, so our topics are Stone, Bronze and then Iron. We will be travelling back to Britain in the Stone Age, then to Greece in the Bronze Age and finally returning to Britain to learn all about life in the Iron Age, where we will meet early Britons like the Celts, and the invading Romans. 

This will be the perfect opportunity of course to meet Minimus, and start to learn some Latin!
