Welcome to Year Three
We have three classes in this year group. The Year Three teaching staff team are: Mrs Letts, Miss Hamilton, Miss Esslemont and Mrs Peat.
This year the classes have all been named after local landmarks / places of interest, we are: Geddington Class, Laxton Class and Wakerley Class.
We are going to be studying and exploring 4 exciting topics this academic year. These are:
Topics will be explored through all areas of the curriculum. We will be exploring the wonderful world of predators, learning about creatures large and small and a visit from creepy crawlies will give us the opportunity to learn more about the smaller predators. We will be travelling back in time to learn how the Romans lived, were schooled and how they invaded and settled in Britain. We will then continue our journey through time to learn about the ancient city Pompeii and how volcanoes are formed. We will also be learning lots about food and hygiene, creating our own recipes and baking delicious treats!
We have an exciting year ahead and can’t wait to share learning experiences with the children and join them on the start of their journey through Key Stage Two. We are privileged to be able to watch them grow in confidence and flourish within themselves.
Throughout the year, parents will be invited to share their children's achievements in class, join in with the children’s experiences and come on school trips and local visits if they are able to volunteer some time.
We use a range of rewards throughout Year 3 from stickers, star of the day, pupil of the week, effort marks and the Principal’s award, which is presented each half term. We also use School Comms and Class Dojo to communicate with parents. These successes will be recorded in their Success Passports.
Homework is given weekly and is set to enhance your child’s learning and to work on skills and knowledge they have learnt that week. Homework tasks cover the following areas of learning:
- Maths, including a focus on times tables
