Year 3

YEAR 3

Welcome to Year 3!

In Year 3 we work on building positive relationships in a caring environment where the children feel happy, safe and secure. We promote a love of learning and curiosity through exciting topics and opportunities. The children will become enthusiastic, independent learners by questioning, investigating, evaluating and creating whilst building their confidence and becoming more resilient when trying new things. In the transition from Key Stage1 to Key Stage 2, we work hard but hopefully have lots of fun along the way!
