Welcome to Year 3
We have a great team in Year 3: Miss Wood, Miss Reburn, Mrs Oates and Mrs Bennett. We pride ourselves on our fun, safe, engaging learning environments, where the children are encouraged to ask questions and take risks with their learning.
As you can see from our photo, we love to completely immerse ourselves in our topics each term. In the Autumn term, the children really enjoy learning about changes from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. The Spring term takes on a Medieval theme, when we visit Pendennis Castle, whilst, in the Summer term, it’s all about the Ancient Egyptians. During this term, children also have the opportunity to take part in the exciting over-night “Sleeping with Sharks” residential trip to Plymouth Aquarium.
We have adopted a practical approach to maths, where children physically build calculations before moving on to more formal recording, and then deepening 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.
The Year 3 Team
Keeping children safe in school is the most important role we play. If you have any serious concerns about any child, please speak to Mrs Walpole or Mrs Stoddern.
