Welcome to Year 3

Meet the Year 3 team:
Mrs Tonks: Class Teacher

In Year 3 we celebrate the children's achievements and encourage a love of learning! Each half term we focus on a particular topic and use a cross-curricular approach to engage and enthuse the children. Our topics for this academic year are: Meet the Flintstones (The Stone Age) Romans and The Great Outdoors.
The children are taught Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Phonics, Science, History, Geography, Computing, Music, Art, Design Technology, French and Physical Education.
Our two School Council Representatives are chosen by the children each year and take our ideas and share them with the rest of the School Council. We also have Class Ambassadors, Eco Councillors, Sports Councillors and many other important child-led roles which enable the children to feel valued and important.
We have lots of fun in Year 3 and there are many opportunities for children to consolidate their learning through taking part in activities such as extra-curricular visits and workshops throughout the year. 
We hope the information on this page gives you a ‘window’ into life in Year 3. Our door is always open if you would like to visit!
