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 and 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.
Homework: Homework is given out on Fridays and is due back in the following Friday.
PE: will be on Monday and Thursday.
Reading: Please ensure that your child reads 3 times a week at home. They will also read with adults in school during our guided reading sessions.
Spellings: Spellings will be sent home every Friday in the form of a spelling booklet. The booklet needs to be kept in your child’s book bag as it is also needed in school throughout the week.

Trips, events and visitors:
At Savile Park Primary we enrich the curriculum for our children by offering a range of educational visits and other activities that add to and complement what they learn in school. There are also a number of people who visit the school to support our work. Some visits relate directly to areas of learning for individual classes, whilst others relate to all our children.
Year 3 had a wonderful time using the Lego Minestormers to enhance their knowledge of robots as part of the computing curriculum. During the workshop they built and tested their construction. They used motors and Sensor as well as obstacles. The children thought it was the ‘best lesson ever’. They thoroughly enjoyed working in their teams and using their imagination to build their robot.”
As part of their topic for this half term year 3 visited The Piece Hall to take part in a curriculum workshop. The workshop took the children on a journey through the building’s fascinating past; from its roots in medieval times through to its eighteenth century beginnings.
Year 3 went to Cliffe Castle to launch their Ancient Egypt topic. We had a brilliant day and got to have a look at some of the amazing artefacts that are kept at the museum. We learnt about the beliefs of the Egyptians, cracked a code using hieroglyphs and we got to have a go at mummifying a body! Can you believe that they thought the brain was not important and threw it away?
