In Tulip Class we work hard every day to create an enjoyable learning environment where we are encouraged to achieve our best and work together for a brighter future!
In Year 3 we cover a range of genres including: narrative, recount, poetry, information texts and diary writing. We link our English to our learning theme for example: 'Repelling Tudors?' (Science/History) is linked to 'The Iron Man' story.
We encourage children to read every day at home - please remember to sign your child's reading diary! Every child in school is trying to read the star on our reading ladder. Five reads in one week reaches the star to win a prize!
In Year 3 we spend a lot of time focusing on number and calculation. This should give children a good foundation and allow them to apply their skills to other mathematical areas. We expect children to practice their times tables every week. This could be done through TT Rock Stars!
