A very warm welcome to Year 3!
Our experienced, dedicated and enthusiastic staff include: Mrs Sweeney and Mrs Murphy. Mrs Murrill is the teaching assistant in Year 3.
We feel that the first steps into Key Stage 2 is a key transition for our children. We instil our Year 3 children with opportunities to develop skills that will enable them to become independent learners that are responsible for taking ownership of their learning processes. This in turn, equips them with the necessary fundamental skills that will support their development as they progress further up the school.
We always provide the support needed for each individual child in order for them to not only reach their potential but enjoy the journey along the way.
We have a collective attitude of working hard within a creative and dynamic way. Children are encouraged to express their many individual talents across the curriculum. Opportunities for peer group work are frequently practised to encourage and develop group cohesion, teamwork and collaboration, as well as working together on developing key friendship skills.
During the year we learn about a range of exciting topics including Europe in geography, the Romans in history and Forces and Magnets in science.
We strive to develop a passion for learning in Year 3 and promote working outside of school as well with times table practice, regular reading and a high standard of homework.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need to know anything further about any aspect of your child’s education. Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to meeting you during the year.
