Welcome to Year 3

Wow what an  amazing start we have had to the year! Everybody has settled back into school really well and we are all working really hard…I am very impressed!

This year we will be continuing to build on and develop the children’s learning through a broad and balanced curriculum.  In English, we use a text-based approach where this allows us to develop their literacy skills in a meaningful and interesting way.  For Maths, we use a CPA approach to deepen understanding and address misconceptions so that all children become fluent with key skills then with their reasoning and problem solving.  Science follows the Year 2 and 3 National Curriculum and we encourage the children to apply their scientific skills and knowledge through enquiry and investigation.  Each half term, we have either a Geography or History subject specific topic and link Art and D.T. skills to that.

Visit our class pages regularly for updates of what Hawthorns are doing over the course of the year.  We look forward to working with you.
