Woodland Walk

Year 3 have loved getting outside to explore local trees in our own school. We have already started learning the names of some of the trees and identifying them from the shape of their leaves as well as the bark and seeds. We used our woodland walk to inspire our writing and have produced some incredible vocabulary and phrases.


"glistening cobwebs entangled in an old tree root"

"juicy blackberries surrounded by a prison of thorns"

"dark green ivy strangling the towering tree trunk"

Year 3 Number Targets

Click on the above links to see a PowerPoint for progression of maths skills at Ashley school. These will be useful so that you are able to understand the methods your child uses, which may be different to the methods you use, so that you can best support them. Please ask your child which method they use as it will differ for each child. The key is that they are comfortable and secure in the method they use.
