Welcome to Year 3

Our Year 3 team this year comprises of Chestnuts and Hawthorns with Mrs Spencer, Mrs Storey, Mrs Mutch and Mrs Hannard.

This year we will be continuing to develop the children’s learning through a broad and balanced curriculum.  In English, we use a text-based approach where this allows us to develop their literacy skills in a meaningful and interesting way.  For Maths, we use a CPA approach to deepen understanding and address misconceptions so that all children become fluent with key skills then with their reasoning and problem solving.  Science follows the Year 3 National Curriculum and we encourage the children to apply their scientific skills and knowledge through enquiry and investigation.  Each half term, we have either a Geography or History subject specific topic and link Art and D.T. skills to that.

As part of our broad and balanced curriculum we provide opportunities for all children to visit different places to enrich their experiences.  This will include working with our friends from the Base to visit a range of areas  linked closely to our outdoor and adventurous curriculum for PE.

Visit our class pages regularly for updates of what Year 3 are doing over the course of the year.  We look forward to working with you.
