Welcome to Year 3!
Our class teacher is Mrs Lawman and our teaching assistant is Mrs McKendrick. Mrs Taylor also spends a lot of time with us.
We aim to help every child make the jump from KS1 to KS2 as smoothly as possible. It is a big step for the children, more responsibilities but also so many opportunities to make the most of. Our mantra this year is
We can't do this...YET!
Good work and behaviour is rewarded in a variety of ways.
Our Golden rule is:
Treat others as you would like to be treated
We hope you enjoy the year!

Homework this week is an activity on telling the time on MyMaths.
As part of our topic on 'How we move' we are investigating how worms move. Do they have a skeleton? How do they use their muscles? What is the scientific name for animals without skeletons?
We have been learning how to tell the time - please take any opportunity to work on this at home.
