Welcome to Year Three!
Year Three is the time when your child will consolidate all their learning from Key Stage One and begin to apply their knowledge in more depth. Our aim is for your child to grow in confidence both socially and academically throughout the year.
While the particular areas of focus are in reading, writing and maths, there is a continued effort to ensure that the children remain enthusiastic about learning through exploring exciting topics. This is supported by our homework structure, which we hope you are enjoying assisting your child with. Please also continue the great support we have been given, and ensure every child reads daily and learns their weekly spellings, at home.
We are looking forward to seeing the progress the children will make this year.
If you have any questions please do come and discuss them with us.
