In class 3AR, we are excited for the children to start their journey in Key Stage 2 developing into more mature and independent learners. The children will experience new, interesting opportunities such as modern foreign languages, swimming lessons and experience the wider curriculum through topics such as ‘Tribal Tales’ and ‘Tremors’ during afternoon learning.
Our morning routine consists of spelling, reading, English and maths. Spelling is an essential part of our English curriculum and we will be focusing on securing our knowledge on the Year 3 spelling rules and words. In English, we will be reading a range of novels such as Krindlekrax, Iron Man and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. As well as covering genres such as adverts, newspaper articles and instructions. Children will be applying the punctuation and grammar they already know as well as learning about determiners, adverbs, inverted commas and more!
Mathematics is taught using the ‘Maths No Problem’ scheme. The children will develop their fluency skills and then applying their knowledge to answer reasoning and problem-solving. Each lesson has many parts and we also cover mental maths daily.
