Welcome to Year 3!

A huge hello from all of us in Year 3.

We’re a motivated, enthusiastic group that treat one another in a friendly, respectful way as we learn, challenge ourselves and seek to be the best we can be.

This year we have a curriculum jam packed with fantastic topics. We love to learn and know that mistakes prove that we are trying.

Take a look at our fantastically diverse curriculum topics and find out what we’re learning.
