Welcome back! The Summer term is here! This term is all about cementing knowledge that the children have learnt throughout the last two terms and using it to the best of their ability to push on and really show how much they know! As well as Maths and English, there will be a big focus on Geography this term.
There is a continued emphasis on Reading and Times tables and this will continue with all. Please , read with your children at home. This continuity will really help the children throughout the whole year.
In this Summer term, our topic is ‘Transport. This will have a big link with Geography, weather dependant, we will be spending a good deal of time outside learning about maps and our environment.
Kind Regards, Miss Hanmer and Mr Kelly.
Hello! We hope you all had a fantastic festive period and are ready for 2018. Now we have learnt new skills in all areas, it's not time to add to those skills.
This Spring term we are learning all about Ancient Egypt, who they were and what they did. We will also be learning about Animals, including humans, so plenty of opportunities to explore the past and ourselves! Thank you children for all your hard work last term, this term will be challenging but exciting!
Kind Regards, Mr Kelly.
Year 3 is where children begin their journey in to Key Stage 2. As a transitional year, children will build on the skills they have learnt in Key Stage 1 and develop new skills in a fun way.
Life becomes a little different in Key Stage 2. It is a great chance for the children to become more independent as they learn new routines. As in Key stage one, we expect them to work in different social groups and respect the opinions of others. We will also encourage the children to think about the way they like to learn and support them to produce their own ideas in a variety of ways. We will help them every step of the way to learn, be safe and have fun.
Children are given either a piece of Literacy or Numeracy homework every Monday. The purpose of their homework will be to build on what they have learnt in previous weeks. The children should be encouraged to tackle their work independently as they are developing the skills they have learnt. During the week we will practise a spelling rule and spellings based on the rule will be given out as homework. The children will be tested on the following Monday. So that we can check the homework in enough time, please hand it in by Friday.
We are always available to talk through any issues or concerns you may have so please do not hesitate to come and speak with us.
