The Doves (Y3)

Welcome to the Doves!

As children move from Key Stage One to Key Stage Two, this is an exciting time to develop children’s independence and support them to take more and more responsibility for their learning. The class is taught by Miss Abbott, with the support of Mrs Smith, Miss James and Mrs Garner who will support and encourage your children to develop their understanding of different concepts and skills.  

We set high standards for behaviour and attitudes to learning and inspire children to be the best they can possibly be in each area of the curriculum including their understanding and use of our school values. 

We have an exciting year ahead in terms of learning and hope that your children will enjoy the activities and lessons we have planned. It is important that children continue to read regularly at home in order to develop their understanding of texts and recall the main events of a story. They will have opportunities to look at different types of writing and use these to develop their ideas. Through English sessions, we will continue to develop children’s understanding of spelling, punctuation and grammar. 

The children should be able to recall their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables out of order as well as related division facts by the end of the year and develop their understanding of numbers up to 1000. We will encourage the children to tell the time to the nearest minute and develop their understanding of space, shape and measures. 

In science, we will develop our investigation skills whilst studying topics including: Rocks and soils, food and our bodies, light, forces and plants.  

During our humanities work, we will be looking at different historical eras including the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age as well as looking at historical buildings and monuments within our town. We will also learn about rivers, climate zones and the UK’s cities and counties. 

You can follow the links to the Doves Long Term Curriculum plan to see full coverage of our learning for this academic year. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us about any aspect of your child’s education and we hope that your child will enjoy all aspects of their time with us in The Doves.?? 

Many thanks
