We have a great team in Year 3, which consists of Miss Wood, Miss Reburn, Mrs Oates and Mrs Butler. We pride ourselves on our fun, safe, engaging learning environments, where the children are encouraged to ask questions and take risks with their learning.

In the Autumn term, the children will be learning about changes from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. They will have the opportunity to get dressed up, allowing them to immerse themselves in our topic and experience what life might have been like during this time period. The Spring term is all about the Ancient Egyptians. During the summer term we will be our focus will be on plants which is when our classrooms begin to look like jungles. Not forgetting our exciting overnight “Sleeping with Sharks” residential trip to Plymouth Aquarium. More information will be sent out nearer the time.

We have adapted a hands-on approach to maths, where children physically build calculations before moving on to more formal recording and then deepen their understanding further through various problem-solving and reasoning opportunities. Watch this space for more information regarding our parent-teacher maths workshops. In English, we carefully select exciting texts and themes to hook and excite the children and further develop their love for reading and writing.

We have an open-door policy and welcome parents and carers to get involved with their child’s learning throughout the year. Please keep an eye on our website for more information over the coming months.
