Croeso i Dosbarth Maple
Welcome to Year 3. In Year 3 Mrs Mapletoft is the class teacher and Mrs Roberts is the Classroom Assistant. PPA sessions are covered by Mrs Evans on Tuesday afternoons teaching Science and RE. The class are also supported intermittently by Mrs Walker and the intervention team for Literacy and Numeracy support.
This year 'Focused Teaching' approach to learning has been adopted in Years 3 and 4. Pupil will have topic based literacy and numeracy lessons taught in smaller groups with a high level of differentiation so that activities are closely tailored to the skill level they are currently working at. Children will also have access to a corridor learning provision using individual timetables that ensure that children access learning in each area during the course of the week. The corridor provision is organised into: Humanities sessions- History or Geography, Creative sessions - Art or DT and ICT sessions. Activities are theme based and carefully planned to encourage, motivate and inspire, empowering our pupils as confident learners. Pupils are encouraged to move their learning on at an appropriate time, whilst being challenged to push their learning on through the enhanced activities. The children also experience discrete lessons in Science, Physical Education, Music and Welsh.
