The staff that work in this year group are:

You are finally in KS2! It is the start of great things, and you will grow so much. Our first English class text will be 'Into the Forest' by the Year 2 spot light author, Anthony Browne. You may have already read some of his other books such as 'The Tunnel', 'Silly Billy' or 'Gorilla'. In Maths, we will be looking at place value, counting, comparing, and ordering numbers in Term 1.

Being a Year 3 child is exciting as you get to have so much fun and learn so many things. We will even be visiting the Botanical Garden to support our learning about plants. We will step back in time in our time machines to the stone age, as well as, meet the Romans and Egyptians, during the year. 


We are looking forward to sharing this learning journey together!
