Welcome to Year 3
I love teaching in Year 3 as I enjoy seeing the children develop and grow into independent, enthusiastic, confident, self-motivated learners throughout the year.
In Year 3 we really get involved in our cross curricular history topic about the Anglo Saxons and Vikings. We get very creative and love creating wonderful projects inspired by each topic.
Our exciting Geography based topic later in the year is China and then River mountain and coasts. In Summer term the children are enthusiastic to explore and learn about the life of the people of Gambia and water in Africa.
English and Maths is taught in the morning following the National Curriculum, making cross-curricular links wherever possible.
In English we enjoy using The Power of Reading English where all our work is based around a rich text. Each book is carefully selected to fit in and enthuse our topic work. We work on deepening our understanding of the text through drama and other techniques as well as writing every day. We also practice grammar within these lessons and continue our daily handwriting and spelling practice.
Maths lessons are fun and interesting and stimulating linked to The white Rose Maths scheme and topics change every few weeks. We love our daily counting and learning our rolling numbers !
We have lots of fun during all our projects and trips throughout the Year. We take part in science week, Arts week, Multi-intelligence days, sports competitions and provide lots of exciting learning opportunities! We are always busy!
