Welcome to Year 3
Class Teacher: Miss Moores
Classroom Teaching Assistants: Mrs Richardson & Mrs Hynes
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 2021/2022 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.
