Year 3 - Blwyddyn Tri
My name is Miss Lucy Williams and I am the Class three teacher. Our class offers a happy, caring, calm and approachable environment where all pupils feel valued, safe and happy and where they are keen to learn and work hard. We promote the importance of good manners, kindness and a sense of humour, focusing on our School Golden Rules; we work hard, we listen, we are kind and helpful, we are honest, we are gentle and we look after property. As the first class within the Key Stage 2 department, we also help to develop the children’s independence and organisational skills through a variety of weekly roles and responsibilities.
We encourage active, lifelong-learners by providing a rich, broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. We plan for and provide fun, engaging and challenging activities, ensuring each and every child has the opportunity to progress, feel successful and achieve their full academic potential. Learning is continually monitored with any areas for improvement being identified to ensure progression.
The learning is designed to encourage the children’s independence as well as collaborative working, alongside the acquisition of skills and subject knowledge. Our mornings are dedicated to Literacy and Numeracy, with afternoons sessions focusing on the foundation subjects; Science, Welsh, ICT, Geography, History, Art, DT, PSE, RE, Music and PE. Wherever possible, cross-curricular, thematic learning opportunities underpinned by Literacy and Numeracy skills, are planned for.
We benefit from an extensive outdoor environment to enrich the children’s learning across the school year. The children are able to enjoy a variety of playgrounds and a large playing field, as well as our nature garden. Our outdoor facilities are all designed to promote and instil a love for the outdoors as well as a healthy attitude and lifestyle. Termly school trips also offer the children invaluable opportunities and experiences to extend and consolidate their learning and understanding, along with gaining an appreciation for the world around us.
Our aim, as with all classes at Tavernspite School, is for consistent support and encouragement both at home and in school in order to help all the children reach their full potential and enjoy a happy, productive and successful time at school.
- Homework - Literacy and Numeracy piece each week (sent home on Fridays to be returned the following Tuesday).
- Reading - bring books (and yellow reading record books) to school every day. Aim to read at home regularly.
- Learning Logs - extended piece of work to support independent learning relating to class topics (once per half term).
- Terrific Talkers - individual presentations based on pupils’ interests/hobbies delivered to their classmates (Autumn and Summer terms).
- Individual targets will be discussed and set by the children (with our support) to help develop areas of learning in Literacy, Numeracy and another area of their choice.
- PE kits - PE planned for Thursdays and Fridays (best have kits in school all week in case of any changes).
- Fruit money - Key Stage 2 children buy their own fruit from the Fruit Tuck Shop. They will need 30p per piece of fruit.
The school provides a good range of high-quality learning experiences for pupils that enhance their education.
The school's commitment to using the outdoors to improve pupils’ learning and wellbeing is outstanding.
The quality of care, support and guidance is excellent.
