Welcome to Year 3
Welcome to Year 3 and the first year of Key Stage 2. Mrs Chumbley is the class teacher and Mrs Masterson is the teaching assistant.
Year 3 is the first class in Key stage 2 and children are provided with opportunities to develop the skills that will enable them to be more independent in their learning.
We provide the support needed for each child to reach their potential as well as enjoy the journey along the way. Children are encouraged to express their individual talents across the curriculum and there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate these achievements.
During the year we learn about a range of exciting topics including Europe in geography, the Romans and Anglo Saxons in history and Forces and Magnets in science. Children have the opportunity to take part in class trips and visits to enhance these topics and they also go swimming in the spring term. Maths and English are core subjects within the curriculum and parent support at home with reading, spellings, timetables and home learning are essential so that children make the best possible progress in all areas of the curriculum.
We all enjoy being in Year 3 and look forward to an exciting year ahead.
The children took part in the fun run and demonstrated the PRIDE learning behaviours - well done.
As part of Black History month, Year 3 shared the powerful story 'The Undefeated' and then learnt about the amazing life of Mary Seacole.
This week Year 3 completed their learning about playscripts by writing their own. We linked our learning to our history learning by using the book Stone Age Boy as inspiration. Once completed, the children had the opportunity to perform their scripts.
Year 3 had a fantastic day at Celtic Harmony where they extended their learning about the Stone Age. They took part in a range of activities including: den building, hunting and gathering, trading, making soup and watching a fire making demonstration.
The children explored how Stone Age hunter and gatherers became settled farmers. The children were given statements which they had to sort into: stayed the same, small change and big change. The children were asked to justify their decisions.
