Welcome to Year 3
Our teaching team this year is Mrs Boddington and Mrs Quintin (Exeter) and Mr Smith (Epsom). Our amazing TAs are Mrs Hewer and Mrs Smith who will work with a variety of children across both classes throughout the year.
This year’s topics are:
Term 1 How to wash a woolly mammoth
Term 2 Can we live in a world without plastic?
Term 3 Krindlekrax
Term 4 How to train your dragon
Term 5 Mr Stink
Term 6 Would you live in the shadow of a volcano?
This year we will be for the first time enjoying 'Wild Wednesdays' where the children will enjoy forest school style activities on Wednesday afternoons which will then lead into a writing session about what they have been doing.
The successful KS2 Enrichment afternoons will continue this year on Fridays. There are a variety of activities to choose from each term which the children rank in order of preference and we aim to give every child their first choice at least once throughout the year. Activities that have been available over the last few years have included: Gymnastics, Adventurous Games, Cooking, Arts and Crafts, Multi Sports, Pride in Our School, Animation, Bloodhound SSC, Woodwork and Love Where You Learn. We encourage the children to stick with their choice throughout each term.
If you have any questions about life in year 3, please come and speak to one of us at the end of the day, email the office at email@example.com or pop a note in your child's reading record. There is a link below to the 'Meet the Teacher' presentation from the start of the year which covers a lot of key information about life and learning in Year 3, including homework expectations.
