Welcome to Mr Schofield's class page
Welcome to year 3 – the first stop in your key stage two journey. A journey that aims to build up your skills in independence, resilience and empathy. What will your week look like? Mondays will become one of your favourite days of the week, as this is the day you get to do PE with Mr Sidebottom. It is also our day when we teach French – Ca Va Bien? Comme c'est fantastique? Spellings are sent home today to be learnt throughout the week for a spelling text on Fridays. We also do a weekly count up of who has 5 in 5 for returning their reading books every day. On Tuesday afternoons, we have the lovely Mr Moore visiting. He will be teaching us how to play Samba this year. How good is that? On Wednesday afternoons, Mrs Scully joins our class to teach us Art. On Thursdays (fortnightly) we have time in the library whereby we have time browsing and selecting books from our school's beautiful library to take home.. Fridays are busy days, we have our big celebration assemblies - to applaud all of the pupils who have achieved amazing things that week and children who always show fabulous learning dispositions. We then have our spelling test and children are expected to get over 7/10. Super spellers getting 10/10 become our class champions. Finally, we choose a home for Wildbury our class mascot, who likes to go home for the weekend to listen to them read and share in the fun family activities you may do. It is exciting to discover what he has been up to during Monday story time.

Each day, there will be daily guided reading based on a whole class text; mental maths and maths activities developing your abilities to recall number facts, but crucially to develop a range of strategies and skills in solving mathematical problems and developing the vocabulary to talk about them; and literacy- where you will develop your writing skills in a range of genres including instructional texts, narrative writing, poetry and non- chronological reports. Each day finishes with my favourite time of the day – Story. Here we read a class story from the year 3 recommended reads and have fun listening the exploits of the various characters. Each week, there will either be an history or geography lesson, depending on the topic focus, a science lesson, an art or design technology lesson, a PSHE lesson and an ICT lesson. In addition, we have three RE topics throughout the year. Our Autumn topic begins with a great history topic - ' The Stone Age to the Iron age'. Here the children will discover what life was like for people living thousands of years ago and how we use clues from archaeological evidence to help us find out. Our other history topic this year is the Romans. In geography, we begin by looking at “Why do some earthquakes cause more damage than others do?” in Autumn 2, followed by What is the Sunshine State really like?' (A study of Florida) in the Spring and “Why do so many people live in Mega Cities” in the Summer term. Our science this year, starts with forces, with a particular focus on magnetic forces, before moving on to health and movement before Christmas. After this, we be studying light and shadows followed by rocks and soils. To end the year, in the Summer term, we will be looking at how plants grow. In PSCHE, we begin by looking at families and relationships- developing an understanding that families may be made up differently but all contain love. We will look at what respect is and how we can respect ourselves as well as show respect to others. In the Spring, we look at our community and look at rights and responsibilities. We will also look at online safety, money and work. In the Summer term, we look at keeping ourselves healthy - physically and mentally, building resilience to setbacks and keeping safe in the environment. In RE - we begin quite topically before Christmas - discussing the question of whether we have lost the true meaning of Christmas. In Spring we have a Christian focus - looking at the miracles Jesus performed, before moving to Summer with a study on Hinduism and the Hindu festival of Diwali.
