Year 3

In Year 3, the children learn how to be more self-sufficient and practice skills to encourage them to be independent learners; for example, accessing the Internet and using books for research, having access to dictionaries to check their own spellings. They are encouraged to solve problems for themselves and rely less on support for day to day tasks.

The children’s learning is based around curriculum maps that have been carefully considered for each topic, ensuring the children have access to a rich and varied curriculum; which will give them the skills and knowledge they require, to help them to progress through their educational journey. The children will also have experience days, trips and lots more to help to enhance the children’s learning experience.

Presentation and handwriting are very important and as the children move into the juniors, they will learn how important it is to present their work well.  Children can earn a pen licence, which is a wonderful accolade and great celebration of the child’s effort to present their work to the best of their ability. However, this can only be achieved once they are able to join their writing and present all their work neatly.

In Year three, the children are very lucky to have other adults and teachers working with them: Mrs Calderbank (Teacher) & Mrs Hunter (TA). 

The children learn in a large, bright environment which is full of learning resources and children's work.  They are encouraged to use the resources independently to help them with their learning.
