Welcome to Year 3

In Year 3 we continue to develop competent and confident learners who have the key skills, knowledge and personal characteristics for a successful future learning career.

Meet the Team…

Mrs Bickerstaffe – Y3B Class Teacher and Phase Leader

Miss Lewis – Y3L Class Teacher (2nd half of the week), Director of Maths for the Rose Learning Trust and Maths Lead SLE in Doncaster Schools

Mrs Wilkinson – Y3L Class Teacher (1st half of the week)

Mrs Burke – Learning Support (4 days per week)

Mrs Booth – Learning Support ( 1 day per week)

We help the children to build upon and extend the knowledge and understanding they developed in KS1, increasingly advancing their mastery of the Key Stage 1 curriculum and move in to Stage 3 learning.

Current Learning (Spring Term 2020)

Our topic for this first half term is ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’. This will focus on food & healthy eating / diets. The topic will cover all areas of the curriculum with a focus on Science, Geography, Design Technology, Internet Safety & History. Our school trip will enhance all of this learning when we visit the ‘Chocolate Story, York.’

In English, we will be studying the novel ‘A Place called Perfect’ by the author Helena Duggan. Other texts such as ‘Rise of the Wolves,’ Fair’s Fair,’ ‘Oliver Twist,’ non-fiction and poetry genres will also enhance our focus on Reading and Writing.

In Maths Mastery we will be learning multiplication and division facts and strategies, learning Time to the nearest minute and developing our understanding of Fractions further. Greater depth learning will include explaining our answers in full sentences; solving word problems and investigating properties of numbers.

For RE we are studying Christianity – the meaning of Lent

Topic home learning will be given out at the beginning of each topic. Watch out for stickers in your child’s diaries for more information about this.

All children will take part in the annual ‘Spelling Bee’ competition. They will be supported by school and home to learn the spellings for their Year group words.

In Maths, pupils & parents are encouraged to register with the online ‘Maths with Parents’ tool. Each week, parents will receive a notification of a new topic that relates to the current Maths learning in school.
