Welcome to Year 3.
This is the start of KS2. Here we aim to provide a happy and secure learning environment for all who join us. It is an important year as the children learn to become more independent. We encourage them to engage in their learning in order to achieve their full potential.
Our classrooms are based near the back playground and we have an excellent view of the school allotment. We provide a rich, stimulating, creative curriculum which caters for all the needs of our children.
The teaching staff are: Mrs Stirzaker (Year Leader), Mr O'Grady (3S's class teacher), Mrs Bush (3L's class teacher) and Mrs Jean and Miss Ashe (3J's class teacher).
Mrs J Hamilton (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Millward (Teaching Assistant).
