Information about Year 3:
In Year 3 the two teachers are Mr Miller (3 Macaws) and Mrs Howey (3 Hippos). Mrs Norfolk and Mrs Crook will also be working with Year 3 once a week.
Other staff working in Year 3 include Mrs Murphy, Mrs Blunden, Mrs Atkins and Mrs Shepherd.
Year 3 is an important year as it represents the jump from KS1 to KS2. Across the year we strive to further develop the children’s levels of responsibility and the growth of independence. We aim to create a stimulating and challenging environment for the children to develop the skills and confidence that they need as they move up KS2, and ensure that learning is always fun.
In English we deliver a book led curriculum and cover a wide range of genres in our writing. We will write fiction and non-fiction texts including reports, instructions, narratives, recounts, character descriptions and letters.
Reading is an important skill that we will continue to develop in Year 3. Both of the classrooms have reading books for the children. Whole Class Guided Reading happens every morning in Year 3. The children will be carrying out a range of activities such as: inferential questions, literal questions, true and false questions, ordering and word meanings.
In Maths we use Big Maths and include problem solving and investigation work. All areas of maths are taught across the year, from the more basic number element, to work on measures including time and data handling. Methods to help improve our mental maths are an important part of each and every lesson.
