Thank you to everyone who came to watch our class assembly on Friday 2 December. We had lots of fun showing off our prowess in Art, Geography, Science and Poetry. The great feedback from parents, children and other members of staff was lovely to hear! We look forward to sharing even more exciting things with you at our next class assembly - date tbc. Watch this space!

A very warm welcome 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 literacy 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 Numeracy, 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, 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
In Year 3, homework plays an important part in the children's learning and is set to address the needs of each child, to review and consolidate their learning and to develop independent learning skills.
Literacy is given on a Monday and expected back by Thursday each week.
Numeracy is given on a Thursday and is expected in on the following Monday. The spelling test is given 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.
