Welcome to Year 3. The teachers, TAs and children are hard-working, enthusiastic and creative, who always love to learn.
We aim to make a smooth and relaxed transition to the junior school so that the children are quickly settled into a new building and daily routine.
In Year 3 there are three exciting main topics planned for over the year with a focus on History, Geography and Science. These cover Ancient Egypt, how Churchdown has changed and the Rainforest. We investigate these topics on a weekly topic day when we develop our skills through carefully planned, exciting activities and aim to extend the children’s learning with trips and local walks. These topics include Art, Design and Technology and Music. Other science topics covered are: rocks and soils; forces and magnets; light; animals including humans and plants.
We encourage all Year 3 to read regularly, learn weekly spellings and practise Times Tables with rewards to encourage them on their way including badges and certificates. A homework grid, linked to the topic, enables children to explore the topic further, which we love to share through Class Dojo.
