Welcome to the Year 3 web page!
My name is Miss Moores and I would like to welcome both children and parents/carers to the juniors.
We have a very exciting year ahead of us with a wide, varied curriculum, enhanced by stimulating school trips to support learning. Of course a real highlight is the residential trip to Chet! Throughout the year we will be developing our reading, comprehension, spelling, grammar and maths skills, whilst continuing to flourish in our sporting, music, art, Spanish and computer opportunities. There are also opportunities for children to be a part of our school, digital and sports council.
Year 3- your child's first year in Key Stage Two- is a very special year to grow in independence, confidence and kindness. This year we encourage children to take more responsibility and become more independent learners so that they are able to make decisions for themselves which will help to prepare them for challenges in life.
It is with great pleasure that I wish you all a happy 2020/2021 academic year, and I express my enthusiasm in being able to teach your children. I look forward to working with families to best support the development of your children, and I thank you for your commitment to encouraging regular reading and extra home learning.

Year 3 have adopted the Gospel value & virtue of 'confidence' and 'honesty'.
Confidence - Psalm 70:2
O God, come to my rescue; make haste to help me!
Many times, when we feel lost, or in difficulty, we ask help from someone we know will lend a hand.
In this psalm, David asks the Lord to help him be confident.
Honesty - Proverbs 16:8
Better to have little and be fair than to have too much and be dishonest.
The proverb tells us to be honest and to earn things honestly.
Children are expected to establish and maintain a daily routine which consists of Reading, Spelling and Multiplication/Division Practise:
TimesTablesRockstars - 5 to 10 minutes practise (playing in both Garage and Studio)
SpellingFrame - practise and test on the given spelling rule (practise, before taking a 'test' each time)
Oxford Reading Owl- reading 2 books aloud to a parent/carer at home each week.
Additional work in maths or reading will be required of individuals/groups of pupils, aimed at targeting specific objectives taught in class; this might include pre-teaching, reinforcement or revision tasks. These will be targeted and distributed as the year progresses.
