Welcome to Year Three

Our Topic – Wild Wood

This topic teaches the children about woodland creatures and their habitats.  We look at Andy Goldsworthy and his natural art and will carry out a cress growing experiment in science.   We hope to enjoy visits from the Welsh Hawking Centre and from Willow Weavers.  Our trip will be to Porthkerry Park in Barry, where we will learn about habitats, shelter building, bug hunting and orienteering.

Curriculum Information

Literacy

Pupils will be given words to learn weekly in school. These words will be based on familiar word patterns as well as the high frequency words all pupils need to learn before leaving primary school. Pupils who can spell these words will be given more difficult and challenging words which will help to stretch their vocabulary.

All pupils from Year 1 up will take part in daily guided reading sessions which are designed to develop all pupils reading skills. Pupils will be grouped to ensure they are all reading a challenging text.

Maths

The children will continue with the BIG MATHS programme this year, it will accompany the main Maths curriculum.  The timed and untimed tests will continue in each year group and the children will benefit greatly if you support them by practising for these at home.
