The Year 3 & 4 Team
Our team consists of 120 children, 4 teachers and 4 teaching assistants. The children in the Year 3 and 4 team enjoy coming to school and the teachers in this phase deliver wonderfully creative learning experiences which support the children to become self-motivated learners. In Year 3 and 4, we have two school Football teams who play in a league with other schools in the local area. It is a great chance for the children to work with new people and see other school: the teams make us proud at every game they play.
Within this team there are lots of changes for the children. It is the beginning of Key Stage 2 so we encourage them to become more independent and set a good example to the younger children in the school. We ask them to take more responsibility for their own learning and organisation in a supportive environment. Because of this aim, we are having a real focus in our team on ensuring that the children work hard at home too so we ask our children as well as our parents to practice times tables from 2x to 12x and read at home every night.
