Welcome to Year 3!
Year 3 is an important transition year, the first year in Juniors. It is an opportunity for the children to grow in independence and flourish within an exciting, stimulating, safe environment.
Reading, writing and topic lessons are based on the Cornerstones Curriculum. This provides a fun, motivational, learning program that includes: Gods and Mortals, Scrumdiddlyumptious, Heroes and Villains, Tremors and Predators. Creativeness, independent thinking, and wider engagement is facilitated through the curriculum.
Mastery Maths is taught using the Shanghai approach which enables children to use equipment as an introduction to strategies providing a secure foundation, fluency follows where strategies are practised then applied to reasoning and word problems.
The aims behind science are that the learning is child-led and the children experience a variety of hands on practical investigations.
We expect children to read everyday at home and complete spelling practise and maths homework weekly.
