Year 3


 

I’m Mrs Knight and I’m the Year 3 class teacher. I have been at Silkmore since September 2020 and I have enjoyed getting stuck into the engaging Mini Missions and immersive curriculum.

When I’m not at work, I am a busy mum of 3 beautiful children. We are a very musical family and spend a lot of time watching theatre shows and learning musical instruments. 

 

 

 

I’m Mrs Whittingham and I’m the Year 3 learning support teachers and also Forest School assistant. I love taking the learning outdoors and finding new and exciting adventures in nature.

Meet the teachers

As Year 3 is the first year in Key Stage 2, this is the year where the children begin to find their independence and experience different learning styles.

What We Teach

The content of the National Curriculum is taught through 15 exciting Mini Missions across the year. These Mini Missions allow the children to become jungle explorers during ‘Charlie Small’ to scientists during ‘The Big Bang Theory’.

One of the sparkles of Silkmore is the unknown nature of the upcoming Mini Missions and the way they are brought to life to hook and engage every pupil. Therefore, we don’t like to publish the names and content of the upcoming Mini Missions. However, if you would like further information about our curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

In Maths we follow the White Rose planning and content. This is supplemented by weekly ‘Flashback’ sessions which allow pupils to re-visit previously taught content.

Our classroom learning is complemented by weekly PE sessions, Forest School sessions, AIM HIGH lessons and Commando Joes team building.

How you can help your child

If your child is in Year 3 you can support their learning by:

  • Practising their weekly spellings

  • Practising all the times tables to help children develop instant recall

  • Reading every day

  • Giving them opportunities to be independent at home

  • Allowing children to practise basic ICT skills such as typing, editing and presenting work

  • Supporting your child to access their home learning sites: Timestable Rock stars, Maths Seeds, Oxford Reading Buddy and Lexia.
