Silver Birch Class

Welcome to Silver Birch Class Page!

We are Year 3!



We are very happy to be welcoming back all of our Year 3 children on 8th March!

Many of our children have missed out on much of their learning during the recent lockdown and school closures, and we will be working hard to bridge any gaps which may have formed as part of our 'catch up curriculum.'

We will complete our unit of work on The Romans in History, linked with creating Roman mosaics in Art and making Roman shields in Design Technology! We will also be focussing on developing our stamina for exercise outdoors - fingers crossed for some lovely sunshine!

In English we will be starting to use our new Literacy and Language scheme of work where children explore stories in depth with a wealth of engaging activities linked to these texts. Our children will also be encouraged to develop their deep comprehension skills and build upon their already strong 'Accelerated Reading' skills.

In Science, we will be planning, investigating and carrying out experiments and reminding ourselves how much fun we can have with Science!

In Maths, we will be identifying gaps and misconceptions, and then moving on to a Fractions unit this half term. We will continue to work on our Schofield and Sims arithmetic learning at school, in our daily arithmetic sessions. Our homework continues to be daily reading and spellings! Look out for our super new homework book to support your child's learning in spellings. We will be sending this out week beginning 15.03.21.


Looking forward to seeing all our lovely children again and 'hitting the ground running'!
