Our new year 3 cohort has had a fantastic start to their Key Stage 2 career. This week, we have been thinking about the expectations for learning and behaviour in Year 3. The children have written themselves a letter about what they are excited about in year 3 and what they are looking forward to learning about this year. They will then read these letters at the end of the year so that they can reflect on the progress they have made throughout the year.
We are all already very excited about our first trip of the year which will be to see the site where the Crystal Palace stood before it burnt down as well as visiting the dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins. Our first Literacy unit this year is ‘Into The Forest’ by Anthony Browne and the children have really enjoyed sharing all of their knowledge about the various fairy tales that are referenced throughout the book.
It has been amazing seeing the enthusiasm for learning which the children have demonstrated throughout the week – a fantastic start to what will be a wonderful year!
