Welcome to Year 3!
The School day
Following wellbeing and reading activities as the children come in, each class begin the school day with a maths lesson using carefully selected concrete resources to support learning. Maths lesson are planned and delivered to develop reasoning and enquiry skills in addition to numerical literacy. This is followed by a daily guided reading session.
After break time pupils will develop their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills within English lessons which are planned to complement topical learning. Each lesson begins with a focused spelling session, with specific areas of grammar and punctuation covered with purpose within the main lesson. Some genres taught in the Year 3 curriculum include persuasive writing, adventure stories, letters and diaries.
Topic lessons usually take place in the afternoons and incorporate different subjects through one shared theme. Our topics throughout the year are: Amazon Adventures; Savage Stone Age; Romans on a Rampage; and Legends, Monsters and Magic.
Our PE lessons take place on Monday afternoons and encourage development of skills.
We use a system called Target Tracker to help monitor the progress children make at Lent Rise School. The documents below show a series of 'I can' statements that explain the different things children should achieve to be at the Age Related Expectation at the end of their Year band.
