Mr D. Farry - Teacher

Hi, my name is Mr Farry and I’m one of the Year 3 teachers. After spending a few years in Upper KS2, I’m now lending my hand to Lower KS2 in Year 3 and very much enjoying the journey.  I still consider myself very much part of a great team in a great school, we really do ALL pull together to ensure the children complete a fantastic and enjoyable curriculum. I am still the P.E coordinator (a veteran now that I’ve joined the over 40s club), and still completely passionate about sport and my role in sport at Park.  I am still actively involved external sports (both team and individual) and consider this essentially to maintaining a healthy body and mind.  The children will tell you I’m still the jovial and humorous person I was when I joined the school, buy I’m simply four/five years older and ‘hopefully’ a little wiser, albeit with a few stray greys! My classroom is a busy place, with high expectations whilst still maintaining a nurturing environment, especially with the kind and generous Mrs Lucas by my side.  The children, thus, continue to feel comfortable and content in their learning environment.

Mrs Lucas - Teaching Assistant

After qualifying with an NNEB in childcare in 1996, I have worked in secondary and primary education supporting pupils of all abilities. I love to paint and draw, and during my time at Park Primary, I have painted the various murals around school. I am a very proud mum of three, who enjoys spending time in the ‘great outdoors.’

Welcome to our brand new classroom.  I am looking forward to continuing our learning journey in Year 3.

During our treasure hunt on transition day, you became familiar with the Key Stage 2 building.

Look at this page regularly and show your parents as I will be updating the page with photos/activities of our learning.

Y3 Autumn Term 1 Curriculum Overview

    1v5a4549-smallReading is an important life skill which you will use every day for the rest of your life.  In Year 3, it is important that you manage your reading independently.  Please ensure you read at least four times a week.  When an adult has signed your reading record book, you will be able to change your reading book by yourself.

    Guided Reading will happen four times a week.   Two groups will work with an adult and the rest of the class will work on independent comprehension skills.

    Children love being read to so we do this as teachers, sharing class novels on a regular basis and would encourage parents to read at home to their children.

    Writing is an important part of our day. Cross–curricular writing and Independent writing will take place every week.

    In Year 3, we know how much reading impacts on our writing.  Our writing is usually linked to books we are reading as a whole class.  These are often related to our topic or to a particular author we are focusing on.  We make sure our writing has a purpose and gives us the opportunity to improve our writing skills.  We have reading and writing books, where we collect ideas, vocabulary and great sentences we have been working on.  Writers are magpies, so we take our influences from anything we read or hear – just like real authors!

    Spelling , Punctuation and Grammar is an important part of our writing and we will be spending time concentrating on these areas.

    Our aim in Year 3  is to make maths fun and lively; we want all our children to love maths.  Part of this includes teaching our children that maths is a subject where it’s OK to get things wrong.  In fact it is inevitable.  If you never make mistakes, you aren’t discovering anything new.

    Children are taught to understand the methods they are using so that they can find and work through their own mistakes.  Of course, it is still essential to have a good knowledge of maths facts to support our learning.  In year 3 , we work towards knowing all our times tables up to 10 x 10 by the end of the year.  The children practise these as often as they can in their mini maths sessions, focussing on personal improvements in speed and known facts.

    Maths is taught and used every day, either in the maths lesson, or in other subjects. We do lots of investigations: challenging the children to be responsible for their own learning and search for patterns or make statements.

    Support from parents is vital to the progress your children make in maths.  Please feel free to pop in for a chat if you would like to know how you can help your child with maths at home.

    In our class we do P.E. on Mondays and Fridays.  Please make sure all jewellery, including earrings, are removed on P.E. days. If your child has recently had their ears pierced, please provide plasters to cover up the earrings.   Our PE on Fridays will be led by our new PE teacher

    Please could you ensure that your child brings his/her P.E. kit (T shirt, shorts and pumps) in a small bag to be left in school throughout the week. With many children’s clothing being similar it prevents ‘falling out’ if all these items have names in them!  Following on from this, please could you ensure that your child’s coat is clearly named.
