Welcome to Year 3
We’re Year 3 and our class name is Maple. Our team consists of our teacher Miss Short and our teaching assistant Miss Hartley.
Year 3 is an exciting time for your child as they begin their journey through Key Stage 2 but it can also be daunting. We therefore aim to provide a smooth transition between Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. We will also provide a nurturing environment for your child while at the same time equipping them with the skills to become more independent learners.
Although by Year 3 many of the children will have learnt how to read, it is still important that they read with an adult. They still have to develop their comprehension skills and surely there is no activity more pleasurable than settling down in an evening and sharing a book together.
