We welcome the children in Year 3 into the classrooms from 8:40am onwards so that they are settled and ready for registration at 8:55am.
Our morning activities are usually Maths and Literacy as well as guided reading and spelling. Topic work, along with physical education, is usually taught in the afternoon.
Homework in year 3 is given out on a Friday and handed back in by the following Tuesday. This involves completing a literacy task as well as an online or paper based maths activity. We expect that all children will read with a parent at least five times a week and regularly practice the times tables. By the end of Year 3, children should know their 3, 4 and 8 times tables but, obviously, knowing them all will significantly help their learning and confidence in Mathematics.
School trips are arranged to enrich the children’s learning – this year, the children have been to Lea Green to be ‘explorers’; Hartington to explore the rocks and soils of the Derbyshire Dales and will visit Creswell Crags for a Stone Age experience.
At the end of the School day (3:30pm), we lead the children out to their parents and carers where we have an opportunity to discuss any issues from the day.
If you have any questions about the Year 3 curriculum, please don’t hesitate to come and have a chat with Miss Cresswell and Mrs Proctor
