Welcome to Otters class.

We believe that year 3 is one of the most important years in your child's primary career. In this year, we see the children bloom, leaving behind their Key Stage 1 persona and starting the journey towards becoming the mature, responsible and independent learners who will get the most out of their Key Stage 2 experience. We know that we learn from our mistakes in year 3, and encourage children to have a growth mindset in order to overcome challenges.

Throughout the year we have many interesting topics including: the Stone Age, the Romans and Caring for the environment. Our topic lessons will cover Art, History, Geography, Design Technology, Computing, Science and R.E.

A usual day in Otters class includes English, Maths, Spellings, Maths Meeting and Topic work. We are currently learning our times tables through Timestable Rockstars. The children have P.E twice a week and French is taught by a French specialist once a week every half term.

We are extremely lucky in year 3 to have our own iPads that we use to support our learning. The iPads are used in most lessons and we are grateful for having different apps to share what we have learnt. ‘ChatterKid’ is one of our favourite apps to recall facts.

In year 3 it is important that the children read every night and look up the meaning of new vocabulary to share with the rest of the class. We love learning new vocabulary to use within all of our writing. To build on our independence in year 3 when the children have finished their book they can use the class iPad to summarise their book to recommend the book to their peers.
