Year 3

Welcome to Year 3. 

We look forward to an exciting year full of diverse and creative learning opportunities that will further strengthen and develop your child’s learning. Year 3 will provide academic challenges that will allow them to successfully grow in confidence as a learner and instil a higher degree of independence.

The year 3 team are:

                Y3C Mrs Cousin

                Y3CW Mrs Clarke and Mr Walters

                Teaching Assistants - Mrs Hathaway 

We are always more than happy to speak to you about any queries or concerns you have and you can contact us at school or via the email links below.

The children’s day begins at 8:45 with 15 minutes of early work to establish a productive learning environment. 

To encourage the children to become more independent, they will come into the classroom on their own at the beginning of each day. They will be responsible for hanging up their coats and putting their bags and lunch boxes in the right places.

Please encourage your child to read every day and ask them questions. These can include ‘on the line’ questions, where the answer can be found in the text, ‘outside the lines’, where you check their understanding of certain words and ‘between the lines’, which look at inference and what is going on in the underlying story of a text.

We are always happy for parents to come in and help in any way that they can, so if you would like to do this, or have any special talents that you would like to share, please come and see us!

We look forward to the year ahead.
