TT ROCKSTARS

The children are introduced to the exciting world of times tables through the world of rock!  After an initial assessment, the children can practise in the ‘Garage’ and focus on specific tables in ‘Jamming’.  When they are up for the challenge, they can try a ‘Gig’ or a session in the ‘Studio’ to gain a new rock status.  Every visit to the TTRS app or website leads to more points which can be spent in the virtual shop.  Many a Rock God is born in Year 3!

VISITS

We aim to take the Year 3 children out into our local community termly.  From visits to the woods to enjoying the local library, we hope the children enjoy the opportunity to learn in different ways.  In addition, the entire year group shall be visiting Colchester Zoo in December to celebrate the end of the first term’s topic and to meet the penguins!  It really is such a wonderful experience.

 

It is a fantastic start to the children’s journey in our Junior school.
