Year 3 SM
STOP PRESS...

Miss Mackenzie, Mr Smith and Mrs Flute welcome you to Year 3 and the first year of the Juniors!
There are lots of exciting opportunities to learn, both inside and outside of the classroom. During English lessons, the children will study a variety of stories and poems including poems to perform and myths and legends. The children develop their skills in reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation and they find new ways to express themselves through activities using drama, music and creative writing. In Maths, they consolidate and extend their practical, mental and written skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They learn to solve a range of word problems as they use and apply their maths in their everyday lives. Topic work leads the children on a cross-curricular learning journey around the world and through Rainforests and back in time to People of the Past! Keep watching the website and letters home for updates on forthcoming exciting trips and visits! We get to keep fit and go for swimming lessons on a Tuesday for the first term, too - Hurrah! 🏊


Learning Goals
Being in Year 3 is an exciting place to be as a whole new part of the school opens up to the children. It is here that they learn to become even more responsible and organised as they become Juniors.

Everyone in Year 3 continues to have individual targets for English and Maths as well as a General target which they work hard on, both at home and school. These are reviewed regularly and help the children to keep a focus on their learning, achieve and reach their potential.
Homework
Shortly, we will introduce a change in the way homework is set in school. We will set a range of carefully selected ideas and activities to stimulate discussion, research, independent study and for fun at home. Watch this space! Importantly, there are some essentials: Spellings are given out on Monday and are expected to be learned throughout the week with a spelling test each Friday and children should aim for full marks with regular practice.

Our children are also actively encouraged to read every night at home and to practise their spellings and target times tables on a regular basis throughout the week.
