Welcome to Year 3!
Meet the Team -
Class teacher: Ms Hammett-Kay
Teaching assistant: Mrs Farmer
A typical day in Year 3:
Each day starts with a Busy Book activity, which may have an English, Maths or creative focus, before we share an assembly or activity on class based around our school values or social and emotional wellbeing.
First up in our lessons is normally Mental Maths, working on key skills and mental speed in calculating, followed by our main session, working on our current maths focus through a range of activities. After break we have a session working on grammar, spelling or punctuation, followed by our main writing session for the day.
In English and Mathematics in Year 3, we follow the New National Curriculum. Much of our writing is linked in to our termly topics, using great texts and visual stimuli to develop our creativity and imagination and to grow our general knowledge, whilst also developing us as confident, fluent readers and writers.
In the afternoon we normally have a chance to read together, plus activities exploring the wider curriculum, including science, history, geography, languages, P.E. and of course 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. In our Tardis we will be travelling back to Britain in the Stone Age, before hopping back in to travel to Greece in the Bronze Age and then 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!
Home learning can now be access via Microsoft Teams. Please contact your child's teacher if you have not received login details or are experiencing any difficulties.
