Juniper and Pine classes make up the Year 3 learning zone.
Following reading, the children start maths learning with a combination of fluency, reasoning and problem solving which allows them to apply previous learning to new topics. Maths is interactive, varied and follows the mastery approach to learning.
English follows this, which includes either a handwriting or spelling session and then the main session that is focussed around a different high quality text each term. These lessons may include immersion into the text, role play, drama, vocabulary work, grammar activities and writing.
Our afternoon curriculum is largely based around our key question. Our topic web (which can be seen below) shows what our current key question is. This includes History, Geography and Science but also gives the children opportunities to be designers, artists etc. through the sessions. Some topics are taught separately such as RE, PE, music and PSHE. We are also fortunate to benefit from the expertise of our secondary colleagues, who teach sessions in computing and French.
