Year 3

Welcome to Year 3.


The children are now based upstairs at school and are in lower Key Stage 2. 3B is taught by Mrs Bryden and 3H by Miss Hayden. Miss Brennand covers PPA and management time in 3B and Mrs Russell covers release in 3H. The children are supported by a team of great teaching assistants: Mrs Ward, Mrs Mussa, Mrs Bapu, Mrs Ormson (1:1) and Mrs Appleyard (interventions). In Year 3, the teaching time is slightly longer and the children do not have a break in the afternoon. They are encouraged to bring healthy snacks or to purchase toast at morning break. Water bottles are essential as it becomes extremely warm in the upstairs’ classrooms.
