Year 3

Year 3 Spring 1

We have started learning about the Rainforest topic in IPC!  We spent the first morning back, after Christmas, making our own rainforests only to be horrified that they had been destroyed by deforestation during lunch!  Here are some photos to show us making our rainforests as well as some of our displays to celebrate this exciting topic!

Throughout year 3, we study a range of genres through our text choices, such as Ug, Stone Age Boy, and a favourite with all the children, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Opportunities are provided for the children to write a range of genres and they are encouraged to develop in varied styles. All our texts are linked with our IPC topics, which begins with Footprints from the past, about Dinosaurs and Prehistoric life, and finishes off very nicely with Rainforests and Chocolate (which all the children enjoy).

In maths, we are reviewing our understanding of key mathematical skills that have been developed in Key Stage One. New mathematical strategies are then taught, moving the children towards written methods and the use of more effective strategies.

We also have the opportunity to attend swimming lessons in the Spring and Summer terms.

A range of techniques are used to ensure lessons are full of energy and depth, and also allow all children to access the curriculum, and running throughout all our lessons are the IPC Personal Goals (including respect, communication, thoughtfulness and cooperation), which help all the children to become well-rounded individuals.

Thanks to all our supportive parents who attended our parent information meeting on Tuesday 26th Feb 2019, we hope you found it informative and helpful.

For those parents who were unable to make it, please take a look at the powerpoint and don't hesitate to come and speak to class teachers.
