Year 3

The Year Three Class Teachers are Mrs Riley, Miss Wolsey and Mrs Williams.

Teachers

Miss Wolsey and Mrs Riley teach in Year 3. We are supported in the classroom by Mrs Nunns, Mrs Robinson and Mrs Eglin.

We are usually on the playground from 8:45am. We are also on the playground at the end of the day if you need to discuss anything or arrange an appointment to meet us. Please feel free to catch us there or send a message via your child’s home/school book if you would like to make an appointment.

We cover the National Curriculum 2014 objectives and have several cross curricular themes throughout the year. To enhance our learning within these themes, we have visitors in school and also take the children on at least one educational visit.

  • Autumn 2: Terrible Tudors
  • Spring 1: The Iron Man
  • Spring 2: Stone Age to Iron Age

Homework

At the start of each theme, children will bring home a choice of homework activities which they can select from to complete over the half term.

Superhero Maths Targets are sent home to practise and tested in school every three weeks.

Children will also bring home weekly spellings and reading books which we encourage them to read as much as possible so they can change them regularly.

Maths Targets

Effective understanding and recall of times tables is an important foundation of Maths and the curriculum puts emphasis on these skills. In order to help ensure this happens, we are using Superhero Targets to build on the children’s rapid recall of their tables facts. Children are introduced to the Superhero Targets in Year Three and they continue to work through them throughout Key Stage Two. The levels are:

Superhero Tables Facts
Batman x2 x5 x10
Hawk Girl x3 x4
Thor x6 x7 x8
Black Widow x9 x11 x12
Superman All with division
Catwoman All with place value – HTU and tenths
Ironman 2 digits x 1 digit
Wonder Woman Fractions, decimals and percentages of quantities

English Targets

The children have individual writing targets to work on and these are recorded on their target cards. Their targets are changed regularly as the children meet them in their writing. Please speak to your children at home about the targets they are working on.
