In Year 3 the children continue to be taught in two classes – 3H, led by Miss Hard and 3HO, by Miss Hope, supported by Mrs. Padmore.
Our curriculum is wide, varied and taught in separate subjects. The lessons are often supplemented with trips outside school and visitors in school. For example, the Partake Theatre Company come into school to hold an Ancient Egyptian Day, and pupils visit Burghley to learn about Plants and Living Creatures.
In Year 3, the pupils have increased opportunity to join a range of clubs and activities after school. Those on offer may include bushcraft, computers, construction, games and sports, judo, ballet and Languages.
Year 3 take on a variety of responsibilities within the Pre-Prep and take turns to carry out roles such as collecting the fruit for break, filling the water bottles, helping with the register and recycling our paper. Each child is encouraged to develop their social and emotional skills through our Learning for Life sessions and through our system of rewards such as being awarded with ‘Bobby Bear’ for good manners and behaviour. We aim to increase their independence within the school environment as the children begin to take on more responsibility for their learning. The emphasis is, as in earlier years, on enjoyment and building on the child’s natural interest in learning.
