Year 3 is taught by Miss Kounnou, assisted by Mrs Souter.
In Year 3, we aim to make learning as thought-provoking and enjoyable as we can!
If you have any questions, please feel free to come and see a member of the Year 3 team before or after school.
Our motto is “We are busy bees working in a team in 3E!"
PE is timetabled for Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon.
Children need to have shorts, t-shirt, tracksuit, socks and trainers in school for P.E. When we go swimming children will need to bring a swimming kit into school, we will give you plenty of warning for this!
Homework is given on a Wednesday and due in on Monday.
The new spelling rule is given out on a Monday. Children are expected to find 5 words which fit the new spelling rule of the week.
Children need to bring in their own snack in Key Stage 2. It can be a piece of fruit or vegetable.
All children will take reading books home to read and share with their families. All children need to do is write in their reading logs which book they are reading and a comment explaining what they enjoyed about the book.
It is really important that children are in school every day. Days missed mean children miss out on key skills and knowledge which will affect their progress. It can also be hard to pick up in the middle of a topic as children will have missed crucial lessons.
Here is information about just some of the learning that takes place in Year 3.
In literacy this year we discover many different types of stories, learn about non-fiction texts and have some fun poetry mixed in among all of this! Most of our literacy work will be done through our topics to help develop our understanding even further.
Maths is a chance for us to really be confident about our ability, consolidate our learning from last year and explore new ideas in a creative way. We make sure we are really good at our times tables and learn these with a song or dance routine! Knowing different ways to add, subtract, multiply and divide gives us the confidence to try out lots of different types of sums and problems. We explore 2D and 3D shapes as well as carrying out investigations and recording our results in a variety of ways.
We will plan our topics throughout the year based on the children’s interests and prior knowledge. These will cover science, history, geography, R.E. and PSHE in depth. We will use the computers to learn new skills and develop skills learnt in Year 2.
Our last topic, was science. Our learning challenge question was "What do rocks tell us about the way the Earth was formed?"
Currently our topic is history. Our learning challenge question is: 'How did the Victorian period shape Cambridge.'
In P.E. we learn how swim. We also learn how to balance, co-ordinate our bodies, develop our sports skills and play in teams.
In I.C.T we will use lap-tops to create graphs, typed pieces of work, the internet and power points to enhance our learning.
