Being the best we can be


Class 3

In Class 3, we aim to learn through exciting and hands on projects that are led by the children’s interests. Lessons are then planned and delivered in line with the National Curriculum.  The children’s interests influence our projects, and highly skilled teaching ensures full coverage of the National Curriculum objectives across the year and over time.  The projects run for an entire term, they involve exciting days for the children including trips, visitors, child led ‘Google’ days and WOW days.

The current Class 3 project is called ‘does sport unite us.’ This topic is going to be exciting and engaging for all. During this project, we will be finding out about the wide range of different Olympic sports; the history of the Olympic movement and modern games; how important a healthy body is; as well as trying a range of sports and much more! We will also carry out scientific research to discover the types of food that professional sports players eat and why it is beneficial to them. We will also make our own part of a meal for them.

During our projects, we aim to have opportunities for children to enhance their Literacy skills; writing at length as well as focusing specifically on grammar, punctuation and spelling objectives.

Mathematics is also included, where possible, in our project and covers the objectives in the Year 3 and 4 curriculum. We teach Maths in practical and exciting ways, ensuring we deepen the understanding that children have of the three key areas; Problem Solving, Reasoning, and Fluency.

It’s going to be a really good term for Class 3 with a lot of exciting opportunities for learning!
