A day In Year 3
A day in Year 3,
8:40 am Morning work – handwriting or mathematical challenges, getting Ready for learning – organising books and stationery. Our pupils have developed their Self-help and Self-responsibility values immensely, responding to instructions and rules Respectfully to keep each other Safe in our learning environment.
8:50 am registration – Silence! This is important, as we would not want to miss anyone.
9:00 am -10:00 am Maths - We are just rounding of our learning about different methods and strategies to solve multiplication and division calculations. We have used dienes, counters and other objects to multiply or share out amounts. The formal written method of multiplication, at first seemed a challenge but our perseverance and determination, enabled most of us to grasp the concept.
10:00 am – 10:20 am Phonics time – We get to go to different classes, meeting the different progression groups.
10:20 am – 10:35 am Time for a breather! (Breaktime)
10:35 am - 11:35 am English – This term our English lessons are inspired by Maurice Sendak’s ‘Where The Wild Thing Are.’ His brilliant imagination has encouraged us to create our own fantasy settings. To build our knowledge of vocabulary, we have used Thesauruses to find synonyms for simpler adjectives.
11:35 am – 12:00 pm (one more lesson to go!) Reading time – as a year group we are focusing on fluency and expression. The recently introduced strategy of ‘Echo reading’ has been a hit with the pupils.
12:00 pm – 12:50 pm LUNCH! Time to regenerate our minds, enjoying some football or just quiet time in the Hub with their friends.
12:50 pm registration – time to demonstrate their self-responsibility skills again, getting ready for learning, respectfully and safely.
In French, we have been learning to name body parts, and as we love a bit of a singsong, we have learned to sing Tête Épaules Genoux Pieds (Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes).
On most days, our days end with a biscuit and a song! We really like singing Bob Marley’s Three Birds (Don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing will be alright....).
This might read as if it has been a busy day, but time flies when you are having fun!
