Year 3 2015 - 2016

Miss Fildes

The teacher in Year 3 is Miss Fildes.

Mrs Friar and Mrs Axon also work in this class.

Year 3 is an exciting year as the children learn how to be more independent and practice skills to encourage independent learning such as researching on the internet and using books and dictionaries. They are encouraged to solve problems for themselves and rely less on support for day to day tasks.

Presentation and handwriting is very important and as the children move into the juniors they learn how important it is to present their work well.  Most children will earn their pen by the end of year 3 – but this can only be achieved once they are joining their writing and presenting their work neatly.

Learning Environment: We have a safe, caring learning environment where children’s individual talents and achievements are recognised and built upon.  We have both  Numeracy and Literacy working walls and the children are encouraged to develop their independence by accessing the resources when necessary. We have three class computers and have access to 15 laptops and 15 ipads each week, enabling us to have lots of opporunities to develop our computing skills.

Literacy and Numeracy: Literacy and Numeracy are taught daily and are often incorporated into other lessons. The activities we complete range from practical to written and they are always differentiated to cater for the different learning needs of the children. Our Literacy lessons are taught around a book such as 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. We use the text to explore grammatical features and to provide us with inspiration for exploring and writing different text types.

Topics: We learn about lots of exciting topics through the Learning Challenge Curriculum, such as The Ancient Greeks, Rocks and Volcanoes, and the history of our local area. They go on some exciting trips to extend their learning in these areas. Click on the 'Curriculum Overview' document, for more information.
