Miss Mullen and Mrs Crouch are the teachers in Year 3. Mrs Willows is our Teaching Assistant.
It is the first year in the Juniors and although many things are the same there are a couple of new changes - learning French as a Modern Foreign Language and doing Athletics as part of the PE Curriculum.
In Maths we use the White Rose scheme to develop our knowledge and understanding of Place Value (Hundreds, Tens and Ones), Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division (using the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables), Money, Statistics, Measurement (Length, Perimeter, Mass and Capacity), Fractions, Time and Shape.
We follow the Cornerstones Curriculum and our projects for 2020/21 are: Urban Pioneers, Rocks, Relics and Rumbles, Tribal Tales, Mighty Metals, Gods and Mortals and Predator. These projects will incorporate a lot of Literacy, History, Geography, Art, DT and Music learning but helps us to link it all together more easily.
For the second part of this Autumn Term we will be studying the project Rocks, Relics and Rumbles which is a Geography and Science based project. As the title suggests, we will be learning about the three different types of rock, how to tell them apart and how they form different parts of the Earth's makeup. There will be plenty of opportunity for us to work independently as well as collaboratively in pairs and small groups as we investigate many fascinating facts together.
In Maths we will be completing our Addition and Subtraction unit (3 digit numbers including borrowing and exchanging using formal and informal methods) and beginning a Multiplication and Division unit where we will get to grips with the 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables!

During the first half of the Autumn Term our project was: Urban Pioneers.
During this project we explored our local towns and cities and compared them with Berlin which is where our class story "Emil and The Detectives" took place. We learnt about changes that have happened over time and how we could help to improve the urban environment moving into the future. We looked at various examples of urban art work before creating many of our own using various mediums and holding our very own Art Exhibition in the School Hall.
