Year 3


Welcome to Year 3.

Year 3, the children's first experience of Key Stage 2, sees lots of changes for our pupils. This year we will focus on becoming independent thinkers whilst facing lots of new challenges. This is something which is especially important as the children take their first steps into the juniors. It is wonderful to see them develop and mature.

Our classroom is a happy, busy, friendly space where everyone contributes and everyone has something special to offer.

In Maths we follow the White Rose Maths Curriculum where children are able to learn through a variety of concrete, abstract and pictorial resources. In English, we become confident writers- exploring a variety of styles and taking inspiration from our favourite high quality texts.

We love to learn about the past. Our particular favourites are the Ancient Greeks and the Romans. Children go home full of knowledge and can’t wait to find out more. We become Scientists studying a variety of topics such as Forces and Magnets, Plants and Rocks.

We are also very lucky to have so much outdoor space within our school which we try to make use of as much as possible, right across the curriculum, from History to Science, Art to English. We aim to make learning inspiring, motivating, interactive and fun!

This year, every child will be encouraged to take risks, be creative and aim high in order to reach their full potential.
