Life in Year 3
Welcome to Year 3! The year ahead offers children the opportunity to build on previous learning and deepen their understanding through workshops, trips and hands-on learning experiences. Your child will be supported in their transition into Year 3 in order for them to become more independent in their organisation and learning. Children continue to develop their Forest School skills and spend a term enjoying swimming lessons.
Transition from KS1 to KS2
Children will begin their transition into Year 3 at the end of Year 2 with visits to their new classrooms and meeting their new teacher. Their transition continues as they get to know the routine of being in KS2 and mixing with children in older year groups for shared reading and Core Value days.
Parent and Carer Communication
Parents are welcome to talk to class teachers before and after school or to arrange a meeting. Children’s learning is shared through the Parent evenings, the Seesaw App, newsletters and Find Out Friday’s which the first Friday of every month.
Children will be given pre-learning information and a topic overview which will provide ideas for work to be carried out at home. This work is then celebrated in class.
