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:
Mrs. McManus (Class Teacher)
Mrs. Boyce (Classroom Teaching Assistant)
