Year 3

Autumn Term 2019

Year 3 is an important year for the children as it is their first year in the Juniors. The children also have the excitement of going swimming in the Spring term and visiting Skillzone in the Summer.

Maths is an exciting time in Year 3! The children have daily maths lessons and will be focusing on developing their understanding of place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (both formal written and mental calculation strategies) and fractions this term.

During the Autumn term, through Talk for Writing sessions, the children will explore a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts, focusing on developing their ability to write spooky setting descriptions as well as non-chronological reports.

The children will also partake in daily reading 'Book Club' sessions with the class teacher. During this time, the teacher will hear a group of children read and discuss a text. In Year 3, children are expected to read regularly at home. The aim is for the children to work their way up the reading caterpillar in class. the more entries they have in their reading record, the further up they are able to progress.

Our school 'Big Idea' is 'Leadership' this term. As part of this, the children will be learning about different inventors, such as Thomas Eddison and Alexander Graham Bell, and how their inventions have impacted on our lives today. Alongside their history skills, the children will be developing their computing skills by creating their own stop motion pictures after exploring how film technology has developed over the years.

Staying active and being healthy is important to both children and teachers alike at BCPA. In Year 3, the children will spend time developing their social skills and attitudes towards being active whilst developing key skills such as running, jumping and hopping in PE lessons. In gymnastics, this children will be exploring balances and using these to choreograph sequences of movement.

Homework in Year 3 is sent out in a pack at the beginning of each term. English and Maths homework will be based on the text type/VGPS skill or maths focus for the week. Spellings are sent home on a Thursday for the children to practise ready for their test the following Wednesday. They will also practise these spellings, and the linked rules, during 20-minute daily spelling sessions.
