Welcome to Y3J
In Year 3 Flamingos, we strive to be creative, clever, kind, caring, capable, confident and create a safe and successful learning environment. We will work hard as a year group to look after each other, and help those who need support. We will focus on improving all aspects of presentation, especially with our handwriting and book presentation.
In Year 3 we are developing our writing to create more adventurous pieces than before. We are looking for much more varied and exciting vocabulary, connectives and punctuation to make our writing stand out from the crowd. We are also really pushing our spelling practice to become more fluent, and becoming more independent by using more self and peer assessment.
We will follow the whole school White Rose and NCETM programme, This aims to teach all areas of maths to a mastery lesson and to revisit areas of maths throughout the year.
Our learning challenges this year are:
Autumn 1 - Extreme Earth
Autumn 2 - Stone Age
Spring 1 - Ancient Greeks
Spring 2 - Ancient Egyptians
Summer Term- Planet Lound (an Environmental project)
The learning challenges cover the science, geography, history, art, music, and DT areas of the curriculum.
Our homework will be given out every Friday on Google Classroom, and handed in on Google Classrooms on the following Friday. We also have Learning Logs which will also be available on Google Classroom. These are more creative projects which can be worked on over time and we love to see pictures of the work and creations on Google Classrooms.
In school the children read daily, sometimes in a group, on their own, with a teacher or a learning support assistant. The children really do love to read and it helps across all aspects of the curriculum, so it would be great for the children to read to an adult at home as frequently as possible.
Our P.E days are Monday and Friday.
