A Message From Mr Ricketts
I am happy to be working with the class this year. I have taught all the years in Key Stage 2, from Year 3 to Year 6 and so have a good understanding of what all the year groups entail. We aim to foster a good appreciation of learning and the opportunities it provides to grow, understand and develop positive attitudes.
Learning in Year 3 provides all the pupils with a wealth of experiences and good subject knowledge. We work with The Power of Reading books in writing , that cover a wide range of types of writing including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Children engage with the text including using drama and art. In maths the children learn areas of maths following the mastery approach. Children learn a range of topics over the year including the Vikings, Norman Conquest and The Tudors in History. In science the children gain understanding of the world around them as well as taking part in experiments in forces, light and rocks. Children develop their musical appreciation through weekly recorder lessons and engage in developing their balance and dexterity during indoor and outdoor PE lessons.
It is our aim to be available to help our students and parents as they make their way through primary school. Please approach us if you have any queries about your child's learning and development at school.
Don't forget, you can also keep up to date with your child's progress and what's going on via ClassDojo. If you are yet to sign up, please contact us or the school office for sign up details!
