Year 3

Welcome to Year 3.

Mrs Chumbley teaches on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and Mrs Cornish teaches on  Friday.  Mrs Williams is the Year 3 teaching assistant who is class every morning to support pupils with their learning.

Year 3 is the first class in Keystage 2 and children are provided with opportunities to develop the skills that will enable them to be more independent in their learning.  Pupils are expected to become increasingly responsible for themselves as well as enjoying greater freedom around the school.  We provide the support needed for each child to reach their potential as well as enjoy the journey along the way.  Opportunities for group work are frequent as teamwork and collaboration are key skills for a successful life.  Children are encouraged to express their individual talents across the curriculum and there are plenty of opporunities in assembly to celebrate these achievements.  We enjoy sharing their successes in and out of school.

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.  Children have the opportunity to take part in class trips and visits to enhance these topics and they also go swimming in the spring term.  Maths and English are core  subject within the curriculum and parent support at home with reading, comprehension, multipication and division facts and homework are essential so that children make the best possible progrress in all areas of the curriculum.

We all enjoy being in Year 3 and look forward to an exciting year ahead.
