What are we learning about in Year 3?

2020-2021

Autumn Term - Recovery Curriculum 

Our school Recovery Curriculum is designed to support a smooth transition back into school life at Lakenham.

We are aware that our families and children have all had different lock down experiences, and the main aim of this curriculum is for children to have time to talk, settle and recover so they are ready to learn.

In Year 3, we are using the story 'Ruby's Worry' to learn and talk about our emotions and experiences.

We will be identifying what different emotions may look like on different people and we will discuss and create our own strategies to help us manage our emotions.

Spring Term 2 - Return from lockdown

The children will be continuing their New Beginnings projects that they started during home learning, after the Spring half term. 

Here is the menu we will be focusing on in school, up to the Easter holidays:


How does it work?

1) The children will choose a partner/group that they would like to work with (they can also choose to work on their own). 
2) They choose a subject of their interest from the menu options.
3) They map out potential product outcomes (e.g. art - collage of a blossom tree), what it is going to look like and the resources they need to be successful.
4) They plan what they are going to do in each enquiry session.
5) They work through each session: researching, investigating, developing, reflecting, editing and improving their work.
6) They share their finished piece of learning with the rest of the class.

The projects in action:
