Year 3

Welcome to our Year 3 class page!

Class Teacher - Mrs Hodgson and Miss Lamb

Teaching Assistant - Miss Holmes


Year 3 is such a brilliant year and we can't wait to start our learning journey with you! Your child will be transitioning from Key stage 1 into Key stage 2 which is not only a scary time but also an exciting time. In Year 3, we will be building on and developing children's previous learning in Year 2 as well as creating our own amazing learning journey along the way. Throughout the course of the year your child will be learning about new topics and subjects and we look forward to sharing our journey with you.

Year 3 loved their drama workshop with As Creatives based on their knowledge and understanding of The Stone Age. 

Look at these wonderful photos of our first day in Year 3!

DT: we had so much fun designing and making our own cushions. We looked at how to create a running stitch and a cross stitch. 

PSHE: The children really enjoyed their session with @safetyseymour, learning all about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide and the signs to look out for. We can’t wait to start our mission and spread the information onto others
