Year 3

Hello and welcome to our new Year 3 classes!


In Year 3 we have Laurel class with Miss Hails and Poplar class with Miss Rees. We are helped by Miss Glynn and Mrs Pratt. Miss Hails and Miss Rees are delighted to be teaching your children this year and are very excited about all the new things we will be learning about.


We have a really busy period ahead, full of engaging and exciting topics to investigate, all linked to our termly picture, The Thames Below Westminister. Through this picture we will be exploring London.

We have very high expectations of the children and look forward to getting to know them more. As a team, we are all dedicated to ensuring every child has the opportunity to make the progress that they are capable of.


At this stage of the year, the children will be working on their times tables, place value and addition and subtraction in Maths. In English, the children will be looking at a range of narratives and non-chronological reports.


We will also continue to work extremely hard on their 5R's. We will be focusing on working together collaboratively and promoting our independence as responsible learners and thinkers. We will be encouraging the children to be resilient when they are faced with challenges in their work and praising their effort.


We are so excited for our first term with our new Year 3 classes!
