Year 3 is an exciting place to acquire new skills as we develop our learning through interactive learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. We engage with many new concepts in maths and literacy and develop our learning across a broad and exciting curriculum. As we are now in Key Stage 2, we have more responsibilities to take care of in the classroom and we continue to develop our independence, using our initiative and the classroom resources to extend our learning.
A Typical Day
We begin the day with an open-ended writing or numeracy activity, aimed at developing our confidence and fluency in these areas. Our first lesson of the day is literacy, where we develop our writing skills through engaging with a variety of texts and following the "Talk for Writing" approach. This is followed by our numeracy lessons, which help us to build our arithmetic, reasoning and problem solving skills.
After break, we enjoy a variety of subjects, including PE and humanities, as well as reading lessons in which we discuss a broad range of literature and develop our comprehension skills.
The afternoons are an opportunity to develop our learning in science, computing, French, art, D&T, RE and PSHE. We also enjoy learning to play the Djembe drums in our weekly music lessons.
