Year 3 - Mrs Marchington


Welcome to Year 3! Working alongside me we have our lovely teaching assistant, Mrs Jackson.  

In Year 3, we strive to continue to nurture the children's natural curiosity and encourage them to take part in discussions and ask lots of questions. We provide hands-on learning opportunities across the curriculum and love to include lots of drama and discussion in our lessons.  

Throughout the year, we want the children to develop confidence, independence, and resilience to their learning, so we offer a year full of amazing learning experiences which will develop these character traits, ready for the children to progress through the juniors.  

Now that the children have entered the juniors, Year 3 is an opportunity for them to really develop their independence and maturity. There are new subjects which the children will be immersed in, such as French, and new challenges to engage with, such as trying to achieve their pen licence! 

Each half term, we will be exploring a new ‘topic’, which will tie in with many different subjects and areas of the National Curriculum. We have lots of exciting things planned within these topics - full of fun, explorations, challenges and lots of opportunities to be creative. Please take a look at our curriculum map for more information about the topics covered this term.  

The overriding thread in everything that we do inside and outside the classroom is through our ‘Lindow Life Skills’ curriculum. Our aim is that we can support the children to become caring, young individuals, whom are responsible citizens of their community, and confident, resilient and proud to be the amazing person that they are.

We also have our own class dojo page where children are given dojo points for working hard, good teamwork, perseverance etc. We post messages to the closed parent group, which is great for keeping in contact and sharing current learning.
