Underpinning our learning in year 3 is our belief that all children can succeed when given opportunities, guidance and support. Each child is encouraged to develop a growth mindset and have a ‘can do’ attitude towards their learning, knowing that making mistakes is an inevitable and vital part of their learning journey.
We understand the importance of a smooth and enjoyable transition from Key Stage 1 to the juniors. We guide and support each child through this journey to help embed their sense of belonging.
During the year our children become Stone and Iron Age experts and Ancient Egyptian archaeologists. They also have the opportunity to study Ancient Greek civilisations. Every year, the children look forward to our experience days where they can explore what life was like as a Stone-Age hunter, Egyptian worshipper and Ancient Greek citizen.
Our children relish the opportunity to take their learning outside the classroom. We visit the Avebury Stones, Crickley Hill and attend an author talk at the Literature Festival. It’s an action-packed start to life in the juniors!
