Welcome to Year 3!
Year Three is part of the ‘Lower Phase’ in our school. Mrs Jacoby is the phase leader for Year 3 and her role is to support the staff, children and families. If you have any questions, concerns or positive feedback then we would love to hear from you. You can contact Mrs Jacoby via the school office or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Moving from Year 2 to Year 3 is an exciting transition into KS2. The children will be immersed into our Year 3 topics: Meet the Greeks, Food Glorious Food and Across the Ages. These topics offer fantastic learning opportunities such as a brilliant outdoor learning trip to Bishop's Wood. Children also start learning French and taking swimming lessons!
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. The children in Key Stage 2 no longer receive free fruit, so they are encouraged to bring in 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 via Seesaw.
