In Literacy, the children are immersed in a range of texts and have the opportunity to explore and discuss them before they begin their writing. Regular demonstration and modelling of writing helps to encourage a high quality of work to include many of our writing objectives. Children are encouraged to independently include previously taught objectives in their writing by using resources without being prompted.
Whole class read
In our whole class reading sessions, children experience a wide range of challenging texts. We read the text as a whole class and answer a range of different type of questions e.g. inferring character feelings. retrieval of facts, summary of text etc.
In Year 3, we learn and practise new spelling rules and patterns daily. Additional support is given to those children who struggle with spelling in small intervention groups when needed.
In Maths, the children are taught a range of skills in number, calculations, shape, measures and data handling with a range of question types including problem solving. Children use apparatus and equipment to support them in their work when needed. We aim for the children to be rapid at recalling the 3, 4 and 8 tables by the end of Year 3. Children can use Timestables Rockstars to improve their rapid recall.
During the afternoons, lessons are taught through creative theme work merging national curriculum objectives from different subjects such as History, Geography, Art, DT, Music, RE and Science. Please see our medium term plan to look at what we are learning about each term so you understand what we are talking about when we come home!
We are learning about the Ancient Egyptians during the Autumn term and will visit Liverpool World Museum on a class trip. Whilst at the museum, we will take part in a 'Meet the Mummy' workshop and will explore the fascinating Egyptian artefacts. Year 3 will also have an Egyptian theme day during the first half term!
We are currently recapping the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and will quickly move onto learning the 3 times table. Please practise these tables three times a week at home.
We ask that you practise the spellings from the Year 3/4 spelling list (which can be found in the back of the chldren's planners) 3 times a week.
Please read regularly with your child too (at least three times a week).
Friday: Children change reading books/ planners to be in and signed.
