Welcome to Year 3
Hello! My name is Miss Jones and I am so excited to be teaching Year 3 this year. This is my first year at English Martyrs' and I'm thrilled to be starting my teaching journey in such a wonderful school.
I have a huge passion for art and musical theatre. In my spare time, I love to watch new musicals and plays at the theatre and I love to create art. I also enjoy reading and spend time with my family back in Wales.
Year 3 is such an important year for the children's religious journey and I am looking forward to guiding them along their Sacramental journey.
"Together, the children and staff in Year 3 have created a caring, safe and happy environment, with positive relationships and where pupils are rewarded for hard work."
We will cover a huge amount throughout this school year, teaching a wide variety of topics that will enthuse and excite the children right across the curriculum.
We build on previous learning in Maths, but focus on the more formal methods of calculation. These methods form the basis that the children will continue to use for the rest of their lives.
In English, we visit a wider range of genres, both fiction and non-fiction, that are continued to be built on throughout KS2. Grammar and Spelling also becomes more diverse, in order to enable the children to develop further as skillful writers.
Year 3 is also a very special year spiritually for the children, as they receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Both the children and parents attend special meetings to help them prepare for this important time. Lessons in class give them a more in depth understanding of their faith journey.
We also like to think that Year 3 are leaders in language learning as we begin to formally have Spanish lessons that build on vocabulary and develop sentence level, each week. These help us to develop our understanding of other cultures and become citizens of the wider world.
All children are encouraged to work to the very best of their ability, while being challenged as well as supported every step of the way. We also encourage independence to help the children grow into the adults of the future.
