Our Philosophy

In Year Three we teach from the national curriculum in an all inclusive and creative way, to develop the children's progressive learning.

Parents As Partners

At Robsack Wood Primary Academy, we value your opinions and your input into your child's education as we believe that close home-school relations are wholly beneficial to children's learning.

For this reason, we operate an open door policy and welcome parents into our classrooms to share and celebrate our achievements. All staff in Year 3 will always be willing to discuss your child's progress and development with you and will be available before school and at the end of the day for these conversations.

We look forward to working in partnership with you during this exciting year ahead.

announcement We operate an open door policy...

Our key text this term will be Invasion, by June Crebbin. This tale brings to life the Battle of Hastings through the eyes of a young boy and his thoughts about the world around him. Our fiction unit will be centred on adventure story writing and we will focus on the development of character as well as setting descriptions and the key features of an engaging plot. Our non-fiction unit will be recounts and we will be using our visit to Battle Abbey to inspire us to write incredible recounts.

We will look at mental strategies for multiplication and division and the pupils will be consolidating their times tables. All pupils should have secured their 10, 5, 2, 4, 8, and 6 times tables by the end of year 3!
Learning Journey Our Learning Journey this term is a History focused topic on 1066. We will be identifying who the Anglo-Saxons and the Normans were, exploring causes of the Battle of Hastings and looking at what happened afterwards and how the battle still impacts on our lives today.
