This class is taught by Mrs Murphy and Mrs Lauf. The class will also be supported by a team of teaching assistants; Mrs Sophie Pool and Mrs Clare Eden. 

How can I help my child ? 

Make sure your child is fluent and confident in these mathematical skills.                 

They need to have mastered the skills in this end of Key Stage 1 booklet, however, if they are still developing their learning, help them progress further, by listening to them read to you each day, supporting them in learning their spellings and homework set by their teachers. 

Use these spelling lists to help your child. Spelling lists Years 1 -6 

Maths: children need to learn their times tables. Start with 2s, 5s, and 10s. In year 3 they will need to master 4s, 8s, 6s and progress towards 9s and 7s. The 100 square below can be used to help children become fluent in their times tables and adding or subtracting. 

RE Curriculum Year Three 

We wholeheartedly follow the Bexley Agreed Syllabus as this reflects that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions presented in Great Britain. This agreed syllabus expects schools as a minimum to provide opportunities for pupils to be taught about Christianity and the five recognised world faiths and also explore the secular world view.  We support this inclusive approach. Read about the Year three RE curriuculum here.
