Long Term Plans – Year 3 2019-20

The Year 3 teachers are Mrs Mower, Mr Rhodes, Mrs Kilroy, Mrs Crook and Mrs Norfolk. 

In Key Stage 2 our classes are named after animals Mr Rhodes’ class will be known as 3 Raccoons and Mrs Mower’s class will be known as 3 Mammoths.

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.

English:

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.

Each school day also starts with whole class focused reading.   The children will be carrying out a range of activities such as: inferential questions, literal questions, true and false questions, ordering and word meanings.

Maths:

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.

Home Learning:

Reading: Children will bring home a reading book to share and enjoy. Please read with your child and ask them to fill in their reading record. The children can read their own books from home or choose one from school if they are confident readers.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
