Welcome to Year Three

Welcome to Year Three. We are four form entry so have four classes in this year group. The Year Three staff team are: Arooj Cecil (Lead), Gail Skelham, Claire McGeown and Tracey Phipps.

Our classes are named using the Year Group followed by the Class Teacher’s initials. Our classes are Y3AC, Y3GS, Y3CM and Y3TP.

We are going to be studying and exploring six exciting topics this academic year. These are:

  • Tribal Tales
  • Gods and Mortals
  • Heroes and Villains
  • Scrumdiddlyumptious
  • Tremors
  • Predator

Topics will be explored through all areas of the curriculum.



We use a range of rewards throughout Year Three from stickers, star of the day, star of the week, dojo points and weekly Celebration Certificates which are presented in our Celebration Assemblies. We use school coms to communicate with parents.

In Year Three, the children who did not achieve the Phonics Screening assessment retake in Year Two will complete further work around developing their phonological awareness.
