About our class


This year, in year 3, we are all about building our skills and confidence in a fun and energetic way. We will be working together to achieve our goals and build our independence as we transition into key stage 2. We are all learning to love our ideas as they come and working as a team to make the most impact both in our school and within the community.  


What are we learning?


This term is jam-packed full of exciting learning! 

In English we are reading two books; 'I'll Take you to Mrs Cole' and 'Podkin One Ear'. Our first book is a tale that teaches us the strong life lesson to never judge a book by it's cover and is also prompting us in our fantastic writing unit on warning tales. The second book is an action packed story, which we will not be able to put down.


In Maths we are starting off the term by looking at Place Value, before moving into our Addition and Subtraction unit. These two units focus heavily on the use of manipulatives, like base ten and place value cards, to support the students learning, in a hands on and engaging way. 


Our foundation subjects are also brimming with exciting topics. In Science, we are learning all about Animals and Movement, looking at the way our bodies help us and how we should be caring for them as well. In History, we are looking at the big question 'Would you rather live in the stone, iron or bronze age?'


Already the students have produced some amazing work. We can't wait to share some with you in the coming weeks.

Please encourage your child to READ as often as possible. Every read will be rewarded with Dojo/ House points. The more your child reads, it will enable them to implement their phonics knowledge and in turn will assist them to progress and become fluent readers.
