Maths with Parents - Message from Miss Lewis
The most useful, effective and efficient way of supporting your child with their Mathematics learning at home is to make sure that your child is registered with the Maths with Parents programme. Each week (Monday) your child's class will be set a piece of learning (by their teacher) that fully corresponds to what they would be learning if they were in school at this point. If you have not registered as yet, please do so as soon as possible.
Further learning activities can be found at the Oak National Academy
Welcome to Year 3
In Year 3 we continue to develop competent and confident learners who have the key skills, knowledge and personal characteristics for a successful future learning career.
Meet the Team…
Mrs Bickerstaffe – Y3B Class Teacher and Phase Leader
Miss Lewis – Y3L Class Teacher (2nd half of the week), Director of Maths for the Rose Learning Trust and Maths Lead SLE in Doncaster Schools
Mrs Wilkinson – Y3L Class Teacher (1st half of the week)

We help the children to build upon and extend the knowledge and understanding they developed in KS1, increasingly advancing their mastery of the Key Stage 1 curriculum and move in to Stage 3 learning.
Current Learning (Spring Term 2020)
Our topic for this first half term is ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’. This will focus on food & healthy eating / diets. The topic will cover all areas of the curriculum with a focus on Science, Geography, Design Technology, Internet Safety & History. Our school trip will enhance all of this learning when we visit the ‘Chocolate Story, York.’
In English, we will be studying the novel ‘A Place called Perfect’ by the author Helena Duggan. Other texts such as ‘Rise of the Wolves,’ Fair’s Fair,’ ‘Oliver Twist,’ non-fiction and poetry genres will also enhance our focus on Reading and Writing.
In Maths Mastery we will be learning multiplication and division facts and strategies, learning Time to the nearest minute and developing our understanding of Fractions further. Greater depth learning will include explaining our answers in full sentences; solving word problems and investigating properties of numbers.
For RE we are studying Christianity – the meaning of Lent
