We have a busy and very interesting year ahead of us, with lots of exciting and engaging learning for the children to enjoy, including: Do you believe in magic? Stone Age, Our European Neighbours, Ancient Greece and Light and Dark.
Parent meetings will be arranged twice a year to set your child’s targets, and discuss their progress. If you would like to speak to us at any other time, please feel free to message us on Class Dojo.
Have a look on the tabs below to see what we have been learning about in each term as well as for details of our latest Home Learning Challenge and our termly Topic Leaflet.
We have had a fantastic start to Year 3! The children have quickly adjusted to the routines and expectations needed in Year 3.
We began the Year with our Google Expedition Experience in which the children explored the digestive system through the use of a VR headset.
They were also fortunate enough to visit the RE Key To Life Bus which they found engaging as it was an interactive, hands-on experience.
Maths we have extensively learnt about Place Value and how to use the column method for addition and subtraction. The children are now much more secure following these methods.
In Science children have explored the human body focusing on types of skeletons, muscles and joint.
This has linked in well with our DT topic – Healthy eating. The children have a thorough understanding of the importance of making healthy food choices. They planned, produced and evaluated a healthy sandwich.
Story telling week was lots of fun. The children learnt the story Dragonory by heart and were able to retell it to Year 6. This was quite a skill and Mrs Downes and Miss Pembrey were super impressed with how quickly they learnt it and how they presented themselves.
As you can see we have had a busy but exciting start to them term, with lots of new things planned for the next.
