Diamond Academy-23


This is an exciting year in which the children will be introduced to new topics and new skills.

There are a lot of exciting topics this year that will help develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the world they live in and give them lots of enjoyment.  

In class 3SW, we are excited for the children to start their journey in Junior School developing into more independent learners. The children will experience lots of new topics such as ‘Rocks. Relics and Rumbles’ and ‘Scrumdidliumptious’  

Our morning will involve 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 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We will also write using many different genres such as newspaper reports, instructions, recounts and many more.  The children will be applying the punctuation and grammar they already know as well as learning about determiners, adverbs, inverted commas and others. 

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. 

What their teacher says:

I am very excited to be teaching in Year 3 this year and can’t wait to go on this journey with the children as they move from infants into juniors. We will work through all our new challenges together as one, big team.
