Welcome to Bluebell Class!
Year 3 is a big step for the children as they move from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2. They are encouraged to be more independent by organising themselves and taking responsibility for their own learning. This year, they are in a mixed age class with Year 4, who have a little bit more experience and the capacity to support and guide our younger pupils.
All pupils will follow our Year 4 curriculum themes (discrete subjects like science have been carefully looked at to ensure coverage is not missed) and will still work towards their year group specific objectives within the core subjects.
Our Year 4 curriculum helps our pupils develop a growing understanding of the wider world around them and our collective responsibility to develop a sustainable way of living. We learn about the environmental impact of human activity in themes such as ‘Protect Our Planet’ and ‘The Water Cycle’, whilst continuing to build on children’s historical or geographical knowledge and enquiry skills in ‘Cairo to Cape Town’, ‘Tudor Times’ and ‘Pharaohs and Pyramids’. There will be some exciting trips to look forward to as well! In addition to this, we also introduce swimming into our curriculum for Year 3 and 4.
We would appreciate your support this year in ensuring that your child completes their homework on time; reads daily and wears the correct school uniform at all times.
