A Warm Welcome to Year 3!
Year 3 marks the beginning of our children’s Key Stage 2 journey! We have high aspirations and strive for our children to become inquisitive lifelong learners, with respect for their world and those around them.
There are two classes in Year 3, Beavers and Moles. In Beavers class, the class teacher is Miss Khan and Mrs Mcdonnell supports the learning. In Moles class, the class teacher is Miss Baxter and Mrs Beardsley supports the learning. We are also very lucky to have Mr Maunsell supporting the learning across Year 3, running groups alongside the children’s timetable to ensure all children reach their full potential.
Have you ever wanted to meet a real-life dinosaur? Well, the children in Year 3 do! We aim to offer engaging, hands-on activities to all our subjects to really bring our learning to life. A typical morning in Year 3 consists of daily Reading, English and Maths lessons. In science, the children learn about many interesting topics, to spark their curiosity. We also have a huge focus on the foundation subjects as we recognise the importance of allowing children to develop their knowledge, to grow and thrive both now and in the future. Within these topics, we use an inquiry-based approach, which includes practical, hands-on activities to increase engagement and maximise learning. We encourage the children to apply the skills taught to answer open-ended questions such as ‘Where on earth are we?’ and ‘Is a mountain a good use of space?’
As you can see, the Year 3 children have an action packed day! We aim to keep you up-to-date with all the fun we have through our online learning platform, Class Dojo.
We look forward to meeting you!
