Year 3

In Year 3 the children learn how to be more independent and practice skills to encourage independent learning such as researching on the internet and using books and dictionaries. They are encouraged to solve problems for themselves and rely less on support for day to day tasks.

For the challenge curriculum in Year 3 the children experience exciting topics such as Ancient Egypt, Rocks and Volcanoes, and the history of our local area. They go on some exciting trips to extend their learning in these areas.

Presentation and handwriting is very important and as the children move into the juniors they learn how important it is to present their work well.  Most children will earn their pen by the end of Year 3 – but this can only be achieved once they are joining their writing and presenting their work neatly.

In Year the children are very lucky to have other adults and teachers working with them. Miss Jenkinson (Teacher) teaches Monday - Thursday and Mrs Rollason (Teacher) teaches on a Friday. Mrs Rumsey (TA) works with us full time, and Mrs Evans(TA) will be with us every morning. Mrs Braithwaite, a languages teacher from a local High School, teaches the children French every Thursday and the children also learn guitar every Tuesday, delivered by Mrs Connolly.

The children learn in a large, bright environment which is full of learning resources and children's work.  They are encouraged to use the resources independently to help them with their learning.


Important things to remember: -

  • We do PE on a Monday and Friday – please ensure that your full indoor and outdoor PE kits are in school at all times as these days may change.

  • We do Forest School on a Tuesday morning - please send suitable foot ware and clothing. No shorts please.

  • Homework is set on a Friday and is due back on the following Wednesday – please ensure you bring it back on time.

  • We change reading books regularly – please ensure that you encourage your child to read at home and bring the book back to change it. 

  • We have a water machine just outside the classroom that the children have access to – please send a water bottle into school for your child to use.
