Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 – Mrs Dickerson
Year 3 is a very important year for the children because they are now embarking upon their journey through Key Stage 2 at Winshill Village Primary and Nursery. However, the 28 Children that are in year 3 have all settled in perfectly and have made a fabulous start. We have some extremely hardworking children in year 3 and they work alongside two committed and determined members of staff: Miss Whitley and Mrs Timms. The first term in year 3 the children will be basing their learning around their topic of “How Humans and Animals Survive”.
The literature that we will be focusing on this term in English will be ‘books from around Europe. We have a lot of work to do in English including a lot of writing of different genres. We will look at writing a newspaper article; as well as many letters and diary entries. We will also be looking at story writing and hopefully we will get the chance to write and ‘publish’ our own book at the end of the year.
During Maths we will be focusing on the calculations policy looking at written and mental methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as well as shape and space, problem solving, money and data handling. We will also be developing out arithmetic skills.
