Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Miss Smith is looking forward to encouraging the youngest juniors to develop their learning skills and independence. Y3 become even more confident in their learning as they take on various challenges to become enquiring learners over the year.

Mrs Hodson is the Teaching Assistant for Y3 and is thrilled to be helping Y3 move on with their learning.

There is a balance of formal and investigative learning styles that will help children of all abilities to achieve their potential.

To further improve their learning experience, the children will benefit from specialist teaching in French and  Music.
