Year 3 2016 - 2017

Mrs Myatt

Mrs Myatt

SENCO, Senior Leader and Teacher

In year three 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 three 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 three – but this can only be achieved once they are joining their writing and presenting their work neatly.

In year three the children are very lucky to have other adults and teachers working with them. Mrs Calderbank (TA) works with us every morning and three afternoons, Mrs Myatt (Teacher) and Mrs Brown (TA) are in class all day, everday. 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.
