Year Three -Stonehenge
Welcome to Year 3, and welcome to KS2. Your class teacher is Mr. Forde and he is supported by Miss Lopes and Mrs Dobson.
As our pupils make the transition from KS1 to KS2 a lot of support is put in to help them with this transition in the first few weeks. Pupils settle quickly into Year 3 and we begin our learning journey in what is an exciting and important year as we start life a juniors.
Topics include the study of the Stone Age, volcanoes, flowers and plants whilst we ask philosophical questions for our Inquiries such as, ‘What would happen if all the bees die out?’
Later on in the year, we undertake scientific investigations into the nature of light as well as making a study of ancient Egypt.
We develop our reading and writing skills further of course and we take the step forward into solving ever trickier maths problems and understanding how to use maths in our everyday lives.
Design and technology features prominently and we study a number of famous engineers such as Thomas Heatherwick.
Year 3 is indeed an exciting and important phase of education and we look forward to seeing our pupils succeed in their first year as juniors.
Our P.E days are on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The children will also further develop their coding skills in Computing lessons and how to stay safe with E- Safety lessons.
Homework is given out on a Tuesday (English) and a Friday (maths) and we are always just an email away if you need any help. (firstname.lastname@example.org )
If you would like to talk to your child’s class teacher, please email or call in to make an appointment and we will always be available to have a chat.
