Year 3

We would like to welcome you to the Year 3 page.

Our Team

We have a fantastic team in Year 3, including Miss Erskine, Miss Rowe, Mrs Bew and Miss Ashton. Together as a team we strive to ensure all children succeed and thrive in everything they do.

Our Aim

It’s a big transition for children as they enter into KS2. During their time in Year 3 pupils are given the opportunity to continue to develop their transferable skills such as; communication, independence and teamwork, whilst building upon the vital foundations that are needed in order to prepare them for the challenges of Upper Key Stage 2.

Our Values

All children are encouraged to follow the ‘Big 5’ and this ethos is embedded into their daily routine. It is important that children take on more responsibility, be confident, set themselves new challenges and be excellent role models for the younger children within our school.

Our Curriculum

A cross-curricular approach to learning is at the heart of Year 3, and we tailor the learning around the children’s previous knowledge and areas of interests. At the end of each topic we will produce a real project outcome. This enables a real purpose to learning.

Miss Erskine – Holes (Louis Sachar)

Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes.

We hope that you find the information that we have shared on our class page useful, but if you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of our team, please email and a Year 3 teacher will be in touch!
