Welcome to our Year 3

Mrs Foley, Mr Mullin, Miss Waters, Ms Conlon, Miss Stokes (1:1) & Mrs Moses (1:1)

Year 3 is a place where your child will make the smooth transition from the infants to becoming a more confident, resilient, independent learner in the juniors. We want our pupils to skip into school, with a big smile and to know they are in a safe, caring environment, where they can become more confident and express themselves. We genuinely believe, a happy child is ready to learn and learning should be fun and engaging to all pupils. We strive to achieve this through our broad, well-planned curriculum, which ensures all pupils are stimulated and challenged.

It is therefore important that pupils arrive on time every day, ready to start the learning journey. Each day begins with spelling, reading or handwriting practise. It is vital these foundations are in place to ensure progress in English and it is their ticket to a whole host of learning in other subject areas. We want our pupils to be proud of the effort and work they produce!

Reading for pleasure is celebrated throughout Year 3 and we encourage parents to read as much as possible at home with their child.  Reading books will be sent home each week with a reading record so that we have ongoing feedback. 

There is also a big emphasis on developing confidence and knowledge in Mathematics. An understanding of place value, how to use addition, subtraction, multiplication and division competently, which can only be achieved by a willingness to practise regularly. With practise comes confidence!

We also have a real passion for Science in Year 3, We have a duty to inspire future scientists to become excited about the world around them. We will help them on their journey to become scientists, to pose questions, predict and investigate and report their findings.  All the time building their science capital and helping them to become global citizens.

In Year 3, we are committed to helping children achieve their best each day. Being part of the ‘Florence Melly family’ means that we respect one another and live out our ‘DREAMS’ core values in all that we do. Manners are important and we treat each other with respect.  This ensure that we create an atmosphere of happiness, positivity, belonging and belief. We care for our children and keep them safe, and we respect the beliefs and cultures of others in the community. 

All of the staff in Year 3 motivate our children through praise and celebrate their achievements.  Our teaching promotes responsible, independent learners who will become confident young adults. We build self-esteem so that children discover the true champion within. Above all, we have fun!

‘You always remember your favourite teacher!’ We will try our best to ensure it is us!
