Year 3 is a wonderful year group transitioning from KS1 into KS2 with the excitement of;

  • swimming lessons
  • brass instruments
  • Fantastic French (oh la la!)
  • a huge array of extra- curricular clubs and competitions
  • a fabulous KS2 playground with a wealth of areas to enjoy (The junk Jard on a Monday is a firm favourite!)
  • Reading extended chapter books from amazing authors
  • Times Tables Rock stars battles and competitions

(the list could go on and on…!). 

As our children mature and grow more in the All Saints’ Way, they develop further independence which is an absolute joy to see how they spread their wings and fly following their firm foundations in KS1. 

Every second in Year 3, we are busy, busy, busy encouraging children to LOVE LEARNING, find their passions and develop their hobbies and talents.  We love celebrating strengths and many pom- poms are awarded in Year 3 for ‘Curriculum Stars’ through the day! There is a real focus on working hard, challenging yourself to be the best that you can be and of course this being celebrated on Tapestry for other to celebrate with us too!

Our classroom fosters stunning views of our amazing school field and Spirituality Garden that we love getting out into especially when the sun shines to find a magic moment of peace and tranquillity! Prayers are prominent in Year 3, and we always take time to reflect and write prayers linked to key current affairs showing our curiosity about the world as well as respect and kindness for others. In Y3, the children really embrace learning about other religions and a trip to the Manchester Jewish Museum and Synagogue is a real highlight.

Year 3 and the class TEAM, take real pride in their classroom environment and spend quality time ensuring that our classroom showcases the children’s riveting learning!  Art adorns our classroom walls and features prominently in our classroom alongside writing as more and more children achieve their pen licence for fluent joined up handwriting in Y3.

We especially love music in Year 3! From classical, to Jazz or ballads music is often buzzing from the Y3 classroom door!

Year 3 have the best ADVENTURE stepping back in time to ‘Ancient Egypt’ in the Autumn Term.  A real highlight is usually the workshop at the World History Museum in Liverpool exploring all about mummification (not for the faint hearted!)  
In Spring, Year 3 adore being able to EXPLORE extreme weather and natural disasters in Geography alongside the ‘Stone Age’ in History a truly fascinating time! In Summer, Year 3 have lots to look forward as we APPRECIATE the fun to be had at the end of the year, from our Class Assembly to Active Week where a lot of courageous determination is needed (we love PE!!!).

Year 3 is an action packed year ‘knowing more and remembering more’ whilst still finding time for lots of smiles, fun and laughter!  

For families of children already in our school, please remember to regularly view Tapestry for our weekly ‘Friday Shout Outs’ and much more!
