Maths and English
Throughout Year 3 the children will be taught a range of:
- Numeracy skills such as addition and subtraction, place value, simple multiplication and division, money, problem solving, 2D and 3D shapes, data handling and measurement. In maths we will also develop reasoning and fluency.
- English skills including elements of handwriting, grammar, spelling, independent writing, guided reading, speaking and listening skills and role play/drama.
Where possible these will link to our topics.
Children will experience a full range of activities through a topic based approach.
The Autumn term’s topics are ‘Lost in the Rainforest’. The second half of the Autumn term is a Science based topic. This topic is called ‘Light, Dark and the Power of the Force’ (Star Wars themed!).
In the Spring Term our topic is titled ‘Dragons over Henfield’ during this topic we will research the History and Geography of our local area. We will also explore myths and legends based around St. George and the Dragon.
In the Summer Term our topic is ‘Pre-historic Adventures’ during this topic we will travel back in time to the Stone Age.
PE takes place on a Wednesday and Thursday.
Please ensure that your child has relevant named kit. Hair should be tied back for P.E days and please provide tape for pierced ears.
Reading at home
To help support reading progress, please encourage your child to read several times a week and record this on their homework sheet. To recognise the importance of reading, the children will be encouraged by having a display in class to show their progression on the reading stars.
Homework (Maths and English) is set on a Friday and is due back on a Wednesday of the following week.
Letters giving parents information from the teacher, head teacher, PTA or governors, will be given to the eldest child in the family. These should be in their book bags, on Tuesdays and Fridays. Year Group newsletters providing details about the topics and curriculum will be handed out every half term.
