Year 3 is an exciting time for our children as they bridge the gap between Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2. They become more confident learners, with a greater emphasis on increasing their independence.
The children will begin to move onto the Renaissance reading scheme this year, which allows the children to choose their own reading book from an appropriate range for their ability. The main focus is on their understanding of the book read. Their teacher (or TA) will judge when they are ready to take the online ‘quiz’ which assesses their understanding. We welcome your support in encouraging the children NOT to rush ahead with their quizzes as this usually leads to disappointment when their score is low. After five successful ‘quizzes’ (85% or above) the children progress to the next stage of books.
Our curriculum is enhanced by a range of additional experiences, such as shelter building and orienteering in Sherwood Forest, The Collection (Lincoln) and an Evacuee Day.
