These are some of the things we will be learning during the Autumn Term
How to help your child at home
Expectations in Year 3
As the children are now in Key stage 2, it is expected that they begin to organise themselves effectively. This includes looking after their belongings, remembering sports kit and homework. Responsibility and Independence are key values we promote. Children are often distressed if they come to school without the things they need for that day, so please help them with this.
Maths Makes Sense is a learning system that allows the children to learn by seeing, hearing and doing. Working in pairs the children demonstrate their understanding by teaching each other new skills. Maths Makes Sense provides a solid mathematical foundation which increases confidence, engagement, understanding and enjoyment for all pupils.
During the Autumn term the children will be working on and improving their Multi-Skills. They will need their indoor and outdoor P.E. kits in school. Outdoor kit must include jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt and suitable footwear.
Our P.E days are: Tuesday and Wednesday – Orca
Wednesday and Friday – Blue Whale
Literacy – ‘Robins Recruits'
Literacy will be taught through Read Write Inc, Language and Literacy and the Creative Curriculum topic of Robin’s Recruits. Some aspects will include coverage of legends, poetry, adventure stories, instructional and letter writing. We will also be developing our composition skills of planning, drafting, writing and editing. As our knowledge grows we will continue to develop our note-taking and non-fiction writing.
Reading remains a high priority and weekly spelling lists reinforce class work and support independent writing. Phonics and Grammar work will follow the New National Curriculum requirements and the school’s scheme of a Read, Write Inc. Spelling programme.
