Welcome to Year 3
Having moved from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 has been exciting for Mrs Keane and the children. This promises to be an exciting and rewarding year as we will cover the curriculum in an engaging way to increase children’s independence and awareness of their own learning. We hope children will take advantage of the wide range of learning opportunities on offer.
Through a range of topics, children will develop new skills and gain knowledge in a creative way. Our carefully considered schemes of work offer children the opportunity to have fun and learn alongside friends whilst taking advantage of our great learning environment, including our new Year 3 classroom as well as the fantastic school grounds.
Children will be encouraged to work as individuals, as part of a group and as a member of the whole class as we work on our topics:
Passport To The World
The Roman Empire
How To Become A Palaeontologist
Things to remember.....
- School planners and reading books should be in school every day
- Children need to have their own water bottle in school
- PE kits should be in school every day
- Toast or an apple is served each morning (£1 per week)
Parent Activity Afternoon - Mon 2 March
Pizza Express Visit - Tue 4th February
Homework is set every week.
Children are expected to complete their daily reading, weekly spellings and times tables activities in order to support their progress in literacy and numeracy throughout the year.
In addition to this, children will have homework which is linked to our topic work. Children will be able to earn points for each activity they complete, working towards a target and earning a prize when their target is reached.
A new year brings a new topic to Year 3. The Roman Empire topic enables us to carry out historical studies as well as link our creative work to The Romans, such as drawings, mosaics and making Roman sandals.
We recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables.
