Welcome to Year 3!

Brainwaves

The Big Idea

Every day we are learning lots of new and different things – gaining the knowledge, skills and understanding that we will need to become successful adults. By finding out more about how we learn, and how we can improve our learning, we will be better equipped for meeting the many challenges ahead of us.

In this unit, we’ll be ļ¬nding out:

  • How different people learn
  • About the importance of practice when learning a skill
  • How the brain works
  • How to make connections between our learning
  • How we can share our learning with others
  • Why it is important to learn from other children and cultures around the world
  • How positive thinking can help us to succeed
  • How to look after our brain
  • How to design a school for learning

When they learn children will be:

  • Investigating
  • Thinking
  • Reflecting
  • Researching
  • Teaching
  • Observing
  • Assessing
  • Presenting
