Who do I want to be?

As a Rights Respecting School we are continuing to learn about the rights and lives of children throughout the world and to explore the whole school Big Question, ‘Who do I want to be?’. Through our whole school theme, ‘Our Future Starts HERE’, we continue to focus on turning learning into action in our community and beyond

In year three our English lessons will be topic based and include elements of grammar, oracy, drama and extended writing on a weekly basis. Based upon the narratives Stone Age Boy and Minnow and the Bear, we will use dramatic techniques to engage the children and bring the books and topic to life. After exploring the texts, children will produce character descriptions and write adventure stories.

In Maths, We will focus on place value in the Autumn term. Children will also consolidate their number knowledge including times tables and number bonds. All children must know their 2, 3 ,4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables by the end of year 3. We will continue to use Add’em our school maths character. He encourages children to use reasoning to develop their mathematical language and explanations.
