Year 3 - Blwyddyn Tri

My name is Jasmine Langdon and I am the Class 3 teacher in Tavernspite School. Our class offers a warm, safe space where children feel happy, comfortable and ready to learn. As we are the first class in the juniors, the children do a lot of growing up in this year and work hard to become excellent role models for the Foundation Phase pupils, which they continue to be as they move through the school. We encourage the children to be polite and helpful, and also to develop their independence and to take more responsibility for their own learning and progress.

We provide a wide variety of tasks that cover lots of different topics! Whilst the children will begin to complete more written tasks and really develop their academic skills, there will be lots of opportunity for practical activities whereby the children can explore and gain hands-on experiences to support their learning. We will look at the Iron Age, focusing on the Celts and the Romans in the Autumn term and get to visit Castell Henllys to experience life during this time. Later, we learn about South America, its people, culture and history, including links to Wales in the Welsh colony in Patagonia! In the Summer term, we take a look at our own ‘Extreme Earth’, focusing on weather, climate and natural disasters.

The learning is designed to encourage the children’s independence as well as collaborative working, alongside the acquisition of skills and subject knowledge. Our mornings are dedicated to Literacy and Numeracy, with afternoons sessions focusing on the foundation subjects; Science, Welsh, Humanities and Expressive Arts. Wherever possible, cross-curricular, thematic learning opportunities underpinned by Literacy and Numeracy skills, are planned for.

We aim to make the most of our beautiful outdoor environment and many activities will be planned for outdoors. Our class motto is, ‘There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!’ so we encourage pupils to be prepared to go outside come rain or shine. We work hard to ensure the children are healthy, confident individuals and activities will be planned throughout the year to ensure that they understand how to keep themselves healthy. The children will also become more aware of our human impact on the planet and over the course of the year, they will take part in activates which focus on sustainability and reducing waste.

Our aim is to ensure that our children achieve the very best that they can, enjoy a happy and productive time at school and arrive and leave with a smile on their faces!
