Welcome to Year 3!
In Year 3 we place a lot more emphasis on the children becoming independent and self-motivated learners, laying a foundation for the rest of the Key Stage. During this year the children will begin to develop in their maturity and are expected to enter into greater communication about their own learning. There are many differences between KS1 and KS2 and in Year 3 we endeavour to bridge this transition smoothly in the first term by introducing the children to new structures for their learning, building on the vital skills and knowledge gained in KS1.
We have an exciting curriculum in Year 3 and will be learning about many interesting topics such as: the Ancient Egyptians, light and shadows, local history as well as developing skills in PE and music. As a school use the Secrets of Success (Push Yourself, Work hard, Don’t Give Up), ensuring children welcome challenge and are not afraid to make mistakes but most importantly we recognise the importance of parents/carers in their child’s progress and endorse and open door policy, so please feel free to ask us any questions.
In our classes, we learn with:
Mr Ingram, Miss Moore and Mrs Wookey (Class Teachers)
Mrs Hart & Mrs Mistry (Classroom Teaching Assistants)
The booklet below provides information for parents and carers on the end of year expectations for children in our school. The staff have identified these expectations as being the minimum requirements your child must meet in order to ensure continued progress throughout the following year.
All the objectives will be worked on throughout the year and will be the focus of direct teaching. Any extra support you can provide in helping your children to achieve these is greatly valued.
If you have any queries regarding the content of this booklet or want support in knowing how best to help your child please talk to your child’s teacher.
