Year 3


Welcome to Year 3


Would you like to learn the recorder? Or maybe learn a new sport? Or even create amazing stone age art?  These are just a few of the exciting opportunities our children are able to experience during their time in year 3.


The children in year 3 are ready to immerse themselves in our jammed-packed curriculum, where they can develop their academic and social skills to become confident, independent learners.


The teaching team are passionate about learning, constantly looking for ways to bring the curriculum to life for our children and aim to inspire each child to do their best and follow their dreams.


Mr Bowden, Miss Charlesworth, Ms Bury, Miss Brown, Mrs Dilkes and Mr James are there to ensure that learning is fun and the children make the best progress they can throughout the year.

Year 3 are currently reading Bill's New Frock by Anne Fine.


In the morning, a horrified Bill wakes up in a girl’s body! He is sent to school in a frilly pink frock with fiddly shell buttons, and finds that life is suddenly very different. The school bully whistles at him instead of kicking him, and – not being a ‘big strong boy’ – he isn’t allowed to lift and carry. His schoolwork is supposed to be ultra neat, and (worst of all!) he gets cast in the school play as Lovely Rapunzel, who never gets to say anything! By the time Bill gets home, the pink frock is covered in mud, and – thank goodness – he will never have to wear it again!
