Welcome to Cherry Class
Cherry Class marks the children’s important transition from KS1 to KS2. With the move, children will develop the confidence needed to face new and exciting challenges. Over the year, the children are taught the skills to encourage them to become more independent and embrace a wide range of learning experiences.
Along with greater challenges, we aim to keep learning fun and stimulating. We aspire to keep lessons topic based where possible, enabling the children to deepen their subject knowledge and make learning more purposeful. Topics in Year 3 include; forces, living things and materials in Science; exploring our local area and comparing it to other areas in Geography and investigating the Stone Age in History.
In English we cover a wide range of units, from adventure stories, instruction writing and performance poetry! We continue to read daily in guided reading sessions and enjoy exploring more sophisticated texts.
Within maths lessons, we fine tune our use of known number facts e.g. number bonds to 100, before moving onto written methods of calculation. We enjoy the new challenge of the Multiplication Awards in Year 3, which allows us to work on our quick recall of multiplication and division facts.
We take every opportunity to enhance our learning further by the use of technology and over the year, we will become experts in Scratch and Microsoft Office. We will continue to use a wide range of apps across the curriculum to support our learning.
