Year 3

Year 3

Mr Bromley is our teacher this year and he is supported by Miss Swallow. Year 3 is a very exciting year as the children make the transition from KS1 to KS2. They are encouraged to become more independent both in themselves and their learning.
We learn to play a recorder to a very good standard and read music – a life skill! Our topics are very varied and interesting ranging from the Rainforest, Romans, Countries on the Meridian, Volcanoes and much more. This is a busy year, but we have lots of fun on the way!

Spellings are handed out on Mondays or Tuesday and tested on the following Monday. We work on different aspects of the spellings all week and the children should be able to explain the spelling rule or pattern.
Initially, homework will be discussion based and handed out before the weekend and shared early on Monday or Tuesday the following week. However, your children will also have access to Times Table Rockstars and Doodle Maths, which, along with reading, should be done wherever possible throughout the week. We are making sure the children are able to get on to these apps during our first few days in school and their passwords will be in their planners, should you need them.

We discuss world news events every Monday morning so any opportunity for the children to follow news events through newspapers, Newsround or any other news outlet you prefer to use would be most helpful. As a rough guide, we will be focusing on good news stories and world events, which will allow us to build our geographical understanding of the world.

We are beginning to use Google Classroom both when we are in school and for homework. We use Google Classroom in Year 4, 5 and 6 and it is incredibly useful when sharing information, working collaboratively and accessing learning when working remotely. The children all have log in details, but will need a bit of help to log in at home. If this causes any problems, please do get in touch and we will be happy to help.
