Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Mr White (3W), Miss Sharratt (3S), Miss Read (3R)

What an exciting year Year 3 is! It is hectic and fun-filled, as well as incredibly rewarding.


We have terrific topics and engaging lessons as we are lucky enough to have wonderful specialist teachers for Music and Modern Foreign Languages.


Now that the children are in Year 3, we will be encouraging more independent learning from the children through the use of a growth mindset every day. Through learning from mistakes, never giving up and always trying our best, we hope your children will become life long learners.


This is the beginning of KS2 and is the start of a great journey at Great Missenden school. We look forward to seeing what the year has to offer and we want the children to have the most exciting year possible.

Important Information


In Year 3, we would like the children to be reading everyday for minimum of 10 minutes. They are required to record at least 4 of their reading sessions in their reading record a week (this must cover 4 separate dates). If a child has finished a book, they need to tell their teacher so that they can change it in school. If your child is a 'free reader', then they are welcome to choose their own books to read either from school or from home.


Across the school there is a comprehension focus on children's reading. Children should regularly, be questioned on what they have read and how much they understand the text. We will have similar exercises in school to support this learning. 


Reading records will be collected and checked each week.
