Welcome to Class 3
All About Us
In class 3, we follow a broad, balanced and enriching curriculum, this encourages our children to become independent, successful learners as well as responsible citizens. We are ambitious in our class and encourage our children to become confident inside and outside the classroom and build strong and positive relationships with both peers and staff.
In class 3 we aim to teach our English curriculum alongside a class book. This terms book is “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Book?”. We will look at the book as a theme as well as delving into writing instructions and recounts.
As a school we follow the White Rose long term plan, this allows for children to develop their learning using concrete – pectoral – abstract approach (CPA). This term we will be furthering children’s knowledge in place value, addition and subtraction and geometry. We aim to cement knowledge of key maths areas by engaging the children in daily morning calculation exercises and all test multiplication knowledge in a fun rock style online learning too called TT Rockstar’s.
In Science we will be exploring and experimenting with light and shadows. Our Science lessons are aimed to be practical, engaging and fun to help enhance the children’s learning. We also aim to visit the Discovery Museum to immerse the children in their light exhibition.
Class 3 have PE on Thursday afternoons and will be looking at ‘Piggy in the Middle’. We will also have an outdoor education specialist half termly to help deliver our outdoor curriculum.
We will be working with a music specialist on a Monday morning who helps supports the delivery of our music curriculum.
In cooking we will be looking in depth at health and safety in the kitchen as well as cooking simple sweet and savoury recipes, which will be on a Thursday morning.
History will allow us to become researchers and look into “How did Britain change from the Stone Age into the Iron Age?” This will give the children opportunities to learn about where we are in history and how to look at artefacts and research evidence from that era.
In RE children will look at ‘What we know about the bible’. This will coincide with a trip to our local church to help further children’s learning and will also open our children up to cultural capital opportunities.
We aim in French to introduce children to the world of animals focusing on pronunciation and retaining simple words and phrases.
In DT children will work collaboratively to build a castle from simple materials.
PSHE will delve into family and relationships and health and wellbeing as well as looking at our Zones of Regulation. This is aimed to help our children to understand their own feelings and how to manage them in a positive way.
In school we have 2 mini buses, which we try to use as much as possible during the school year to further our children’s experiences of Culture Capital. As well as visiting the church and Discover Museum we also have the children booked in for a fun Cinema trip to see Super Mario Bros. This is a free trip that the INTU Film Festival puts together annually to allow all children to experience a big screen experience.
