Learning in Class 3 is vibrant and engaging. This year we once again have a class is composed of all those children in Year 3 and some Year 2 children. We are lucky enough to have two teachers – Mr Smith and Mrs Easton, who will share their expertise and knowledge throughout the year. The environment in the class is nurturing and encouraging, allowing the transition to be supportive and smooth while, at the same time, promoting a sense of independence and self-belief. The children are taught through well-chosen and varied topics delivered in a cross-curricular, skills-based format using the children's initial questions as starting points. This will help to encourage creative and innovative deep learning as the topics will be explored in great depth. We have high expectations of all children who are assessed at various points during the year to ensure continued progress. Provision is regularly adapted to suit the needs of the individual child. We operate an open door policy to allow parents to come into the class and discuss any issues, at any time, as well as more formal meetings throughout the year. There are many opportunities to take part in the wider school life such as a variety of after-school clubs and activities, a whole school Poetry Recital competition, sports competitions, the school choir and a residential trip which takes place every two years.
