In Year Three, we have an exciting and challenging curriculum, which encourages us to become independent learners. In our classroom, we have a positive learning environment, which helps us to achieve and exceed our potential. Mrs Turner-Mitchell, Miss Rylatt and Miss Blyth are sure Year 3 will be an exciting year for all of us in Year Three, as we have many interesting and engaging topics to learn about. Mrs Pearce will also be helping out in year 3 in a morning.
