What are we learning?
In our Mantle work this term we are a team of dieticians.
We have a number of commissions, including devising a menu for a care home to meet the needs of the elderly residents.
This will involve our Science work on nutrition and plants.
We are also able to teach our HISTORY, GEOGRAPHY, COMPUTING, ART and DT through our Mantle.
We read in class every day.
We do whole class reading practising all our decoding and understanding skills, as well as exploring books at other times such as to assist our writing and Mantle work.
The children read to adults in class and those who still need to develop their fluency and phonic skills read in small groups regularly as well.
They will also have the chance to read their school library books, look at books linked to our Mantle work and change their library books regularly.
Every day we have story time with the teacher reading to the children.
Some children will have extra reading opportunities to develop their reading skills.
In Year 3, we continue to develop our independence in writing and become more accurate with our spelling, grammar and punctuation. We write for a wide range of purposes, including within our Mantle and other work.
We work on our spellings every day using No Nonsense Spelling and practise our handwriting as well. We use Spelling Shed in class and can use it at home as well.
Some children will have additional chances to build their writing skills as needed.
In Key Stage 2 we use the White Rose Hub Maths plans. We follow a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning in Maths.
At the moment we are learning about fractions, as well as time.
Children work on times tables everyday and should practice regularly at home, too.
We do a daily times tables quiz and also enjoy using TT Rockstars to get better and better! They can use this at home as well.
Every week Rob works with each class on Music skills, and Year 3 also take part in Rocksteady Music's Feel Good Fridays to further develop their musical knowledge as well as having fun. We will also sometimes have the chance to work on additional musical opportunities within our Mantle.
We follow the Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE.
We follow the PSHE Association Programme Builder plan to structure our teaching in this area. We use the resources recommended in the plans such as Discovery Education and NSPCC Share Aware.
Computing and Online Safety
We are working towards becoming a verified National Online Safety school. We will be following their plans to teach online safety.
