Year 3 2018-2019
Mrs Dutton Class 10
I have been teaching at Woodlands Primary School since September 2013. I am passionate about teaching all subject, but I really enjoy teaching Literacy, exploring different narratives and writing imaginatively and creatively. This year, I will be working closely with Mrs Liversey to develop literacy across Woodlands. My weekly highlight is singing assembly with KS2. I love bopping along to tunes from 'The Greatest Showman' with KS2. When not in school, I can usually be found running round after my two children, reading them stories or baking yummy treats in the kitchen.
My motto is 'Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!'
Miss Roberts Class 11
This is my first year teaching at Woodlands Primary School. My favourite subject to teach is mathematics. I love making the lessons fun and enjoyable. I am very passionate about the humanities and religious education as I believe these subjects to be very interesting and important. When I am not at school, I can be found exercising and travelling to new cities and countries. Most of all, I love spending time with my family and friends.
Miss Moore Class 12
I am new to Woodlands Primary School this year and can’t wait to start in Year 3. I really enjoy teaching Maths. I also like teaching fun and engaging science lessons. I also love Art because it can be so fun and creative. When I am not in school, I enjoy watching live music, going for long walks at the beach and spending time with her friends and family. I am very excited to be a teacher at Woodlands this year in Class 12 and cannot wait to help my class in their new adventure in Year 3!
Welcome to Y3!
This half term, we will be looking at the narrative, 'Escape from Pompeii,' by Christina Balit.
Literacy: Mastery Targets – Spring 2
- To use inverted commas to punctuate direct speech (using dialogue to show relationship between characters)
- Use the present perfect form of the verb in contract to the past tense
- Group related ideas into paragraphs
My on-going targets are:
- Use punctuation at Yr 2 standard correctly (full stops, capital letters, exclamation marks, question marks, commas in a list, apostrophes for contraction and possession)
- Use conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions to express time, place and cause
- Create characters, settings and plot in narrative
- Group related ideas into paragraphs
We will begin by exploring the different parts of the Roman Empire and will look at the change from Republic to Empire. We will learn about the impact that the Romans had on Britain; by looking at life before the Romans and will learn about the life and culture of the Celts. We will study the invasions of Julius Caesar and Claudius and will learn about the unsuccessful rebellion of Boudicca. Once we have an understanding of the history of the Roman Empire, we will learn about their culture. We will learn about their building, entertainment and what they did in their free time.
Trips and visits....
This half term Year 3 will;
- Continue their weekly visits to Hope Farm Library
