What will they be learning in Year 3? 

Newsletters will be sent out from the Year 3 team every half term providing an up to date overview of their learning and topics being covered.  

Long term Curriculum Overview for Year 3 - see attachment below. 

How is English taught at Mayhill? 

Here is an example of a Learning Journey in English from Year 3. Children all access the same high quality text which is then used to inspire and model a writing outcome. A Learning Journey provides children with approximately 3 weeks working towards a single piece of writing, ensuring all of their grammar and punctuation is purposeful and individual pupil targets are developed. Quality over quantity is prioritised, with time provided for editing, redrafting, publishing and self-reflection. 

Trips and Workshops

Trips and workshops play a significant part in ensuring all of our children are excited about their topics and that the learning comes to life. If you would like support with payment, contact the school office or Mr May to discuss a range of options. 

Autumn 1: Trip to Stonehenge. 

Spring 1: Egyptian Day workshop

Summer 2: Trip to Wisley Gardens

Y3 Residential

Each year, we invite the year 3 children to come for a sleepover in the school hall. For many children, this is their first night away from home and helps provide a stepping stone to longer residentials in other years. 

Maths targets

To support our Maths curriculum, all children have a sheet of targets that will help support them in reaching Age Related Expectation. These can be downloaded as a reference for parents here
