Year 3 

The Year 3 team consists of three teachers – Miss Bowers, Miss Wong and Mr West – who are well-supported by Mrs Gardner, Miss Dean, Mrs Warr and Mrs Bazes. Mrs Davidson also regularly supports teaching in Year 3. The Year 3 team is directed by the lower hub assistant headteacher, Miss Bateman.

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.

Our updated Year 3 long-term curriculum overview will follow shortly…

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

Year 3 pupil
Mighty metals was fun. I really enjoyed testing my parachute and finding more about air resistance.
Rebecca B
Year 3 pupil
I loved creating and designing my own parachute. I found out it needed to be bigger and have less holes in it to work.

I liked it when it was earthquake day and I learnt that fossils were made out of sedimentary rocks. It was fun.
Mia K
Year 3 pupil
My favourite thing about the project was making fossils out of bread and sweets. I also learnt that the holes in pumice stone are made from the bubbles in lava.
Alli
Year 3 pupil
I loved when Mr West destroyed the classroom on Earthquake Day because it felt real and was fun with the alarm.
