We would like to welcome you to the Year 3 page.
We have a fantastic team in Year 3, including Miss Wilson, Miss Durber and Mrs Tarris. Together as a team we strive to ensure all children succeed and thrive in everything they do.
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.
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.
A subject-specific 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. We aim that at the end of each half term, the children will have a wealth of subject-specific learning they can confidently recall and talk about. This enables a real purpose to learning.

Miss Wilson – Little Women (Louisa May Alcott)
Meet the March Sisters:
- Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love.
- Then there’s tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer.
- Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first
- Finally there’s Amy, the youngest and most precocious.
Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures – including Laurie, the boy next door.
Miss Durber – The Wind in the Willows (Kenneth Grahame)
Spring is in the air and Mole has found a wonderful new world. There’s boating with Ratty, a feast with Badger and high jinx on the open road with that reckless ruffian, Mr Toad of Toad Hall. The four become the firmest of friends, but after Toad’s latest escapade, can they join together and beat the wretched weasels?
