Welcome to Year 3!
The staff in Year 3 from September are:
Mrs Jacoby (Year Group Leader)
Class 12 – Miss Flynn (Class Teacher)
Class 13 – Mr Kirby (Class Teacher)
Class 14 – Miss Ingram (Class Teacher)
Miss Fellows & Miss Elward (Learning Support Assistants – LSA)
Moving from Year 2 to Year 3 is a huge change and a big step but it is also an exciting time! The children will be immersed into our Year 3 topics: Meet the Greeks, The Great British Bake Off and Across the Ages. These topics offer fantastic learning opportunities such as a brilliant, outdoor learning trip to Bishop's Wood and a science based visit from ‘The Animal Experience’. Children also start learning French and take swimming lessons! Comme c'est excitant!
As well as the great academic opportunities, Year 3 is all about encouraging the children to become increasingly independent and confident. As part of this move up into KS2, we expect children to come into school by themselves, walking from the gate to their classroom in the morning, and walking to the gate from their classroom at the end of the day. Homework is now also set on a weekly basis, rather than every other week. It can also a daunting time for children as they move to a new playground! However, all children at Manor Park are extremely friendly and welcome the Year 3s to their new playground. The children in Key Stage 2 no longer receive free fruit so they are encouraged to bring in a piece of fruit or vegetables to eat at playtime.
The Year 3 team look forward to welcoming your child and working with you to ensure your child has a happy and successful year. If there are ever any questions that you need to discuss with your child’s class teacher, please do not hesitate to contact us.
