Meet the Staff
Year 3 is a two form entry with 38 children in total. We work very closely together as one year group, participating in a range of activities, such as sporting events, singing and seasonal festivals.
In Summer Term 2, we have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Ways that you can support your child’s learning:
- Listen to your child read regularly.
- Access Times Tables Rockstars.
We enjoy reading a range of fiction and non-fiction books to support our English learning.
We follow the White Rose Maths long term plan to support our Maths learning, where children use the CPA Approach (Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract). This is supplemented by the use of Times Tables Rockstars.
