Year 3 Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2024

The children make an exciting discovery when they return to school after the Easter Holidays; the corridor has been trashed and an egg has been laid, but by what? The children will become detectives and soon it all becomes clear. They write newspaper reports about the amazing discovery.

In Maths, the children continue with their learning of fractions, and then move onto learning about time, shape and measurement. Science lessons focus on finding out more about Rocks, soils and plants.

In the foundation subjects, children will learn to use Scratch, will write compositions in Music, continue to learn new vocabulary in French and stay fit and healthy during PE and swimming lessons.

At White Meadows Primary we use the Read Write Inc. phonics programme across both Key Stages up to Year 3. This phonics scheme provides a systematic approach to literacy, both reading and writing, which is fun and engaging. This is supplemented with the use of phonetically decodable books from Oxford Reading Tree and the Phonic Bug schemes, along with a range of other texts. Further details on how you can support your child can be found on the Read Write Inc website, www.ruthmiskin.com.
In addition to the above programme, we also use the Big Write and Big Maths schemes and Little Big Maths in Foundation Stage.
