The heart of education is education of the heart

Year 3

Welcome to the Autumn Term 2017

Our new Year 3 children have begun to settle well into their new classroom and are very busy adapting to the many changes that a move into KS2 brings.

In Year 3 we place a lot more emphasis on the children becoming independent and self-motivated learners, laying a foundation for the rest of the Key Stage. During this year the children will begin to develop in their maturity and are expected to enter into greater communication about their own learning. There are many differences between KS1 and KS2. We endeavour to bridge this transition smoothly in the first term by introducing the children to new structures for their learning, building on the vital skills and knowledge gained in KS1.

The Year 3 curriculum offers a rich and stimulating learning experience which children thrive and flourish in. We aim to, where possible, guide the children to make links across the subjects and to real life situations.
