Year 3 - Maple Class
InYear 3 the children are extremely enthusiastic about their learning and getting their hands dirty; particularly with rocks and fossils! Theres so much excitement – a class full of future palaeontologists!
Autumn, Hinduism, The UK, Mental Health and Rugby are on the agenda for the early part of the year. Wellness sessions on a Wednesday morning will allow the children some much needed relaxation to set them up for the day ahead. This is colouring/yoga/meditation to name a few activities. Our new Power Maths scheme is helping the children to become better at visualising maths strategies and problems. We are looking at Place Value and Adding and Subtracting numbers to 1000. In Literacy, Year 3 will write a story about The Stone Age Boy, a short play and a job description for a budding archaeologist.
As we move through the term we are looking forward to a trip to Pizza Express, sharpening up our bread-making skills in our Great Bread Bake Off!
As the Year goes on Year 3 shall be delving into the past world of the Ancient Egyptians and Anglo Saxons, exploring the science of Animals, Humans and Plants and discover who lies behind some of our greatest scientific inventions. Our Rocks topic gets even more exciting with a look at earthquakes and volcanoes. To keep ourselves physically and mentally fit we shall be learning gymnastics, football and athletics skills whilst celebrating our differences and making Healthy choices.
The class continue to be immersed in books – The Railway Children and Iron Man being two of the books on the agenda. All children are continuing to improve on their grammar skills and handwriting whilst learning to write in various different genres (e.g. diaries, instruction writing). Maths is always a daily focus and will include Arithmetic, Shape, Time, Measurement and Fractions.
A The class takes pride in what they do and children use their individual abilities to help others to achieve.
