Welcome to year 3. We hope you find the information below useful. This information will help you support your child at home with the organisation of their week and their learning at home.
Mr Strickland-Taylor teaches in Wren class and Mrs Bhaduri teaches in Robin class.
Each week, children are expected to learn their spellings, practise their times tables, practise their joined-up handwriting and read for 30 minutes each night.
Tuesday and Thursday
Both classes receive 2 PE lessons each week.
Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing school uniform and they will then change in school.
|Trips||Every term we have 2 Wow days. These are an opportunity to further enrich the children's learning by taking part in workshops or going off site to visit places linked to their curriculum topics.
For Year 3, the school day will begin at 8.40, and end at 3.35. Please stick to these timings as each year group has their own start and end time to ensure social distancing.
Year 3 Curriculum
Our children are taught in line with the expectations that are set out in the National Curriculum. Subjects are taught with a clear progression and links are made with prior learning.
The Curriculum has been designed to ensure rigorous learning of knowledge but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children.Our curriculum engages children with their learning and gets them interested in the world around them. Our Curriculum takes a global approach by helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries. The curriculum also emphasises the history and culture of Britain and promotes fundamental British values.
PE is taught by a specialist sports coach and Science, Music and Art are taught by specialist teachers.
Handwriting lessons take place two or three times each week focusing on letter height, formation and the flow of writing. We follow a structured approach to handwriting using the Morrells approach. We believe that this promotes flow and speed, and supports spelling as the children develop as writers.
What are we learning?
See the curriculum map on the subject page and view our looking forward letter at the bottom of the page for more details on what the children will be covering in class.
How can I help at home?
One of the key ways every parent can help, is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 25 minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Practising times tables frequently is vital, and children should be confident in their times tables by the end of year 4.
Children have logins for Times Table Rockstars, Literacy Planet and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts.
If you have any questions, please talk to Mr Strickland-Taylor or Miss Witkowska, alternatively, you can arrange a meeting via the school email.
