Year 3

Welcome to the Year 3 class page.  The teacher in Year 3 is Mr Brown.

A child in Year 3 will experience their first year of lower Key Stage 2. We build upon the experiences and learning the children bring with them from Key Stage 1, and with a careful blend of support and increasing independence over the year, we aim to promote each child's sense of responsibility as a learner.

We follow a broad and balanced curriculum in Year 3, with a strong emphasis on linking English and Mathematics to practical experience, to learning in other curricular areas and to children's lives. The children have regular lessons in English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, Music, R.E. and P.E. There are also age-appropriate lessons in P.S.H.E. and sex education. Other subjects - History, Geography, Art, Design Technology (DT) - are taught through 'Topics'. This year the children in Year 3 will study the Ancient Egyptians, Extreme Earth, The UK and Great Yarmouth.  Year 3 also offers children the opportunity to learn French and to go on a residential trip linked to one of the study units.

The home-school link remains a critically important element in supporting children's progress in English and Mathematics, with weekly homework set for these subjects. Sometimes additional homework in other subjects is also given.
