Welcome to Year 3:
The first step in the Junior School learning journey!
In Year 3, all the staff are dedicated to supporting the children’s transition between Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. It is during this year that children will be encouraged and begin to become more independent within their learning and themselves whilst continuing to develop their love of learning. Over the year, there will be fantastic opportunities for each child to grow in their knowledge and understanding of the world and their own personal development through our exciting and engaging topics.
Let the learning begin:
In Year 3 we explore an exciting variety of topics. From keeping our bodies healthy to the formation and life cycle of plants. Travelling back in time to the life of Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age people as well as exploring emperors and empires of the Roman times. Discovering the different properties and uses of rocks, how fossils are made and the reasons for earthquakes and volcanoes. Developing skills in textiles and mechanical systems and understanding the process of colour and medium selection to create a piece of artwork.
Supporting your child at home:
To support your child at home, could you please listen to your child read at home three times a week and encourage them to practice TTRockstars.
We look forward to all of the opportunities through Year 3, seeing each child make progress academically and grow in their character and personality.
