Year 3 

The Year 3 team consists of three teachers – Mrs Lewis, Mrs Evans and Miss Kay – who are well-supported by Mrs Gardner, Mrs Fett and Mrs Pink-Hatt. Matisse class teacher, Mrs Lewis, leads the Year 3 team.

As we are a junior school, the Year 3 team endeavour to bridge the transition between key stages and schools smoothly in the autumn term by introducing the children to new structures for their learning, and building on the vital skills and knowledge gained in Key Stage 1. The team places much emphasis on the children becoming independent and self-motivated learners with a strong growth mindset, in order lay the foundations needed for the rest of their time at SEJ.

I enjoyed testing which materials were magnetic and which ones were not. Some materials, like on a tap, surprised me!

Mighty metals was fun. I really enjoyed testing my parachute and finding more about air resistance.

I loved creating and designing my own parachute. I found out it needed to be bigger and have less holes in it to work.
