The Year 3 teachers are Mrs Mower, Mrs Collin, Mrs Norfolk and Mr Hannington. They are joined and assisted by Mrs Czartowski and Mrs Dexter.
In Key Stage 2 our classes are named after local rivers. Mrs Collin's class will be known as 3 Aire and Mrs Mower’s class will be known as 3 Esk.
Year 3 is an important year as it represents the jump from KS1 to KS2. Across the year we strive to further develop the children’s levels of responsibility and the growth of independence. We aim to create a stimulating and challenging environment for the children to develop the skills and confidence that they need as they move up KS2, and ensure that learning is always fun.
In English we deliver a book led curriculum and cover a wide range of genres in our writing. We will write fiction and non-fiction texts including reports, instructions, narratives, recounts, character descriptions and letters.
Reading is an important skill that we will continue to develop in Year 3. Both of the classrooms have reading books for the children.
Each school day also starts with whole class focused reading. The children will be carrying out a range of activities such as: inferential questions, literal questions, true and false questions, ordering and word meanings.
In Maths we use Big Maths and include problem solving and investigation work. All areas of maths are taught across the year, from the more basic number element, to work on measures including time and data handling. Methods to help improve our mental maths are an important part of each and every lesson.

If you want to buy one, lots of different brands are available in various different prices. The brand we use in school is a Makala Soprano Ukulele it measures 54cm in length. As long as it is a soprano one it will be fine. I can sort finger chord stickers and tuning at school. The ukuleles, when new, do keep going out of tune but with repeated tuning they eventually stay accurate.
