Paget Primary School, Paget Road, Pype Hayes, Birmingham

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3.

This year is the start of Key Stage 2 and is particularly important for the children because they move from the infants to the juniors. We help the children become more independent and to take more responsibility for their own learning.

Throughout the year we will teach a variety of exciting themes through our 'Big Idea' and the Paget Curriculum Guarantee. Through these we will build on your child’s education and develop learning in all areas. Year 3 covers topics such as Stone Age and Iron Age, cave art, healthy diets and mapping skills.

Year 3 is the first year that the children learn a Modern Foreign Language. They begin with early Spanish, starting with key vocabulary and progressing onto simple grammar. The children also are lucky enough to take part in whole class music lessons. The children learn the Djembe Drum and Steel Pan.

To support learning at home, the children have access to Oxford Owl, this gives an opportunity for you and your child to read lots of different texts. There is also Spelling Shed, this allows the children a chance to learn spellings through games and TT Rock Stars, which can help boost your child’s time tables ready for the Year 4 times table test.

The teaching staff in 3B are Mr Bagshaw (Class Teacher) and Mrs Nasim (Teaching Assistant).

The teaching staff in 3C are Miss Cheng (Class Teacher) and Mrs Steer (Teaching Assistant).

We look forward to helping your child thrive in all areas and seeing them grow from an infant pupil into a responsible junior pupil.
