Our English lessons will be designed to help develop reading and writing skills. We will study different novels and a range of genres. By the end of the year, the children will be writing imaginative texts with engaging descriptions whilst also demonstrating the many skills they have learnt, such as the use of varied openers, prepositions, adverbs and conjunctions.
In maths, we will be focusing on how mathematicians think to solve different problems. We will also be looking at developing a better understanding of place value and learning how to use written methods to solve problems.
Over the year, we will be learning about a range of different topics. From Predators to Mighty Metals, there is something for everyone. Our first topic, Scrumdiddlyumptious, is based all around food. We will be looking at food hygiene and the process of preparing and cooking foods.
This year is also a very exciting year for Year 3, as we will be having swimming lessons. Our class is lucky enough to go first so will be swimming every Monday morning until Christmas. This is an excellent opportunity, as it helps children develop their swimming techniques and gain more confidence when in the water.
