Year 3 E-Safety Lessons

Gooseberry Planet - Street

As we are spending more time online at home than we might normally, our online safety curriculum is as important as ever!  Please additionally find our final two lessons for Gooseberry Planet below for you to complete at your leisure over the remaining half-term.  Don't forget that each lesson also has an online game in the app and your login details are in your reading diary.  Below, you will also find the Q&A for the end-of-unit Rapid Fire Quiz which is on the app and a very jazzy certificate for you to print out and keep to celebrate the end of the year's learning.

Further learning activities can be found at the Oak National Academy


Post COVID-19 Year 3 Information

Welcome to Year 3

Year 3 starts the transition into KS2 which can be a very different experience for some children.  Children are led towards a change in curriculum expectations, as well as a change in mindset, now accessing a classroom at the opposite of the school, where the 'older' children are taught.  Year 3 children access a different playground, therefore a period of transition takes place at the beginning of the year to settle children in to their new routines. 

Children tend to flourish and mature in Year 3 which is a truly magnifcent thing to encounter as a teacher.

Home Learning

In Year 3, we encourage an increased degree of independence. Pupils are expected to bring their diaries as they are checked each day. Homework is to be completed by deadlines and there is an expectation that pupils begin to take responsibility for bringing their P.E kits, swimming kits, packed lunches etc.

Spellings are given out weekly each Monday, then tested the following Monday. These also link in with our novel study.

Pupils are expected to read 5 times a week at home. Diaries are checked each Friday for ‘Reader Leader.’ Those pupils achieving this receive tokens and treats!
