Year 3

Mrs J. Latham – Year Three Teacher (Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri), Mrs S. Hodgson (Thurs)

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to Year 3’s homepage where you can find out what the children will be learning each term. You will also be able to read about the interesting activities they have been getting involved in.

Year 3 is a significant year at school as the foundations are laid for the children’s journey through Key Stage 2 and it is in this year that we encourage children to become more responsible for their own learning. The teaching assistants who support Year 3 are Mrs Ellis and Mrs Stapleton.

I hope children will find their time in Year 3 exciting and stimulating.
