'Love one another as I have loved you' (John 13:34-35) Helping each other to reach for the stars

Class 3

Welcome to Class 3's Page

Transition into Key Stage 2

 We understand that while remaining in the same school, moving up a year can still present new challenges and fresh experiences for some children.

The Year 2 and Year 3 classrooms are conveniently located next to each other. This allows your child to maintain a sense of familiarity with the school environment while stepping into the Year 3 space. The language we use across the school to support teaching and learning is consistent so the children will already be familiar with many of the routines and expectations. 

To further support a smooth transition, we take proactive steps to introduce the children to their new teacher and classroom. In July, we arrange for the children to spend a morning with their Year 3 teacher. This early interaction helps them become familiar with the new classroom setting and build a bond with their new teacher.

Our curriculum has been designed to ensure continuity in your child's educational journey. We aim to seamlessly link their previous learning from Year 2 with the upcoming content in Year 3. This approach helps them carry forward their knowledge and skills, setting a strong foundation for their continued growth as they reach for the star. 

In September, your child's new teacher will deliver a 'Welcome to Year 3' presentation. This is an excellent opportunity for you to gain insight into the curriculum focus and the expectations set for Year 3. We encourage you to attend this session to stay informed and actively support your child's academic progress.

We believe that with open communication and collaborative efforts, we can make this transition a positive and enriching experience for your child. Should you have any concerns or questions regarding the transition process, please feel free to reach out to your child's classroom teacher.

Our Reading Journey

 The purpose of our Reading Journey is to outline the carefully curated Storytime map we have here at Stone School. In order to offer a diverse and enriching literary experience for our students, we have thoughtfully selected texts that they will encounter throughout each academic year. This journey is not exhaustive and the children will also hear other texts throughout the year and other subjects. 

Life in Year 3

In Year 3, the children learn the violin as a class. Learning to play the violin is a fantastic way for children to explore their musical abilities and develop a new skill as they reach for their star. It can also help with concentration, discipline,and creativity, all of which are valuable skills for our young learners to cultivate.
