We warmly welcome you to the first year of Key Stage 2.
The children will be building on their previous learning and developing new skills and knowledge through our creative and diverse curriculum. Our topics in Year 3 include ‘Rockin’ and Rollin’’ - Stone-Age to Bronze Age, ‘Of Myths and Monsters’ - Ancient Greece and ‘Can We Dig It?’ – Food and Farming.
We organise educational trips in Year 3 as part of the children's learning and they will also have the opportunity to learn to play the ukulele as part of an enriched music curriculum.
The children will bring home both reading books which reflect the child's ability and library books which are chosen freely by the children. We encourage reading and sharing of books at home and also the practising of number skills such as number facts and multiplication tables. We also provide a choice of topic and maths homework, which the children can complete and return to school every fortnight.
We encourage parent helpers in Year 3, who are very welcome to support in class. Please speak to your child’s teacher if you are able to help. We are very happy to see you about any questions or concerns you may have at any time during the year. Please feel free to either talk to us at the end of the day or make an appointment if you would like to talk in more detail.
