With care and support, each child’s progress in all areas of school life develops in leaps and bounds. Learning remains ‘hands on’ as teachers combine the best of traditional teaching methods with the most effective modern techniques, ensuring that each child is growing in ability, self-belief and independence.
The structure of school life becomes slightly more formal at this stage. Homework is introduced more regularly at Year 3, as well as the essential work on spellings and times tables. All children are involved in school performances and many will be also involved in school choirs and orchestral groups. The level of sport becomes more competitive with regular fixtures against local schools and the opportunity to represent the school in the Under 9s teams.
