Year 3 is a transitional year in the Lower Key Stage 2 phase at Savile Park. In Year 3 the children are encouraged to take appropriate risks, as they continue their exciting learning journey into the juniors.
Learning is based around a creative curriculum where personalised child-led activities are central to our vision. The children are encouraged and supported to develop their own questions and enquiries, as well as finding the answers to these through collaborative learning challenges across the curriculum. Furthermore, each child is given the opportunity to ‘Review & Reflect’ on their learning journey so far, utilising what they have learnt in different contexts – in order to gain a deeper understanding and a real purpose for learning.
Each classroom is stimulating, encouraging and vibrant; from interactive displays to working walls, all classrooms are organised so that children can learn in a variety of ways and celebrate success. Each learning environment has five areas of provision that support and develop the children’s skills and knowledge across the curriculum. Our flexible timetable allows for a balance between supported group work, collaborative learning and independent discovery time.
In Year 3 we promote learning essentials that encourage independent, inquisitive and reflexive learners. Where collaborative discoveries are key to our vision and the children are encouraged to take responsibility of their own learning journeys.
