Welcome to Year 3!
A warm welcome from the team in Year 3! This year is a challenging and rewarding year and sees the children experience a lot of new things for the first time, including swimming lessons and the opportunity for lots more sporting events!
The children in this year group are taught by Miss Heaney (Bridgewater class) and Mr Snape (Warhol class) and supported by Mrs Brough and Mrs Boulton. We work very collaboratively across the year group working off each other’s strengths meaning the children get a good variety of teaching style experiences. It is great to be able to share these passions with the children!
Year Group Information
During Year 3, children will take part in Swimming lessons at Fenton Manor. These lessons take place during the Spring term and last for 10 weeks. They are a great opportunity for the children to develop a key life skill.
During Summer 1 we will explore where food comes from and how it manufactured. We will look at how food is cooked and the range of foods available to buy on the market. We will look at how food manufacturing has changed through history and how modern technology has enabled us to eat a wide and varied diet from around the world. Children will bake their own food from recipes and think about using healthy alternatives in their diet.
In Summer 2 we will look at world history and the impact of the Ancient Greeks. We will look at how the Greeks influenced the world and how their legacy still influences our daily lives today. We will read Myths and legends and learn about Greek mythology and Gods.
We welcome communication between home and school. Staff are often available at the start or end of each school day or appointments can be made by contacting the school office.
We have 3 Parents’ Evenings during the year; one in each term. Each meeting is an opportunity to discuss your child’s learning and celebrate their achievements and progress.
The summer term meeting is an opportunity to meet your child’s new teacher for the following year and find out all about their new class and year group ahead of the summer holidays. This helps our parents and children to prepare for these changes and come back in September feeling settled and ready to learn.
