Welcome to Year 3! This is a very exciting year because it is the transition from Key Stage One to Key Stage Two, where the children are encouraged to become more independent learners. They not only revise what they have learnt in previous years but continue to enrich their lives through new multi- sensory learning experiences.
The children are encouraged to learn in a creative, fun and energetic way. This means acting out characters and scenes from books, going on a ‘Shape Walk’ around the school to spot different shapes, and travelling back in time to see how people in Ancient Greece lived. This approach brings learning alive for the children and enhances their understanding of the topics covered. Every child will be given time to progress and learn at their own pace in order to achieve their individual potential.
I believe the most important aspect of my job is to inspire the children to investigate the world around them, to prepare them for a fulfilling life as 21st Century adults by providing them with opportunities to be independent thinkers and confident learners.
As part of our Science topic on Teeth and Healthy Eating, and linked to our Design and Technology topic on Designing and Making, Year 3 were asked to plan, sketch and prepare a healthy sandwich for their snack.
