Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Year 3 is an exciting year with an amazing team who work collaboratively to give children every opportunity to learn.


The team consists of:

Mrs Ghosh (3 Penrhyn Castle and Team Leader),

Miss Savage (3 Stonehenge),

Miss Cranfield (3 Ben Nevis),

Mrs Sawyer (HLTA),

Mrs Achour (Key Worker and EAL Specialist for Years 3, 4, 5, & 6) and

Miss Rivet (key Worker).

Also supporting the children and adults is Mrs Parmley who is the Vice Principal for Years 1, 2 & 3.

Year 3 children will continue with the reading scheme, Accelerated Reader. Children are encouraged to read at home and then complete the quiz related to the book in school. We ask that parents listen to their child read and then encourage their child to discuss the contents of the book. 


Year 3 sees the beginning of children practising Times Tables Rockstar in school. Children will benefit further from learning the times tables at home and practising them.  


Over the course of the year, children will be immersing themselves into
exciting topics during PBL (Project Based Learning). They will be learning about ‘Lights Camera and Action’, ‘Extreme Earth’, ‘Light’, ‘The Stone Age’ and ‘The Secret Garden’.  Throughout these topics, children will be exploring a range of skills and objectives in history, geography, art and DT which will enhance them to explore, investigate and broaden their views and understanding.

During the Spring Term, the children will be partaking in swimming lessons which are always fun and a great opportunity to learn a life skill!

We are so excited to have the children with us and look forward to creating
great experiences ahead of us!
