Pupils in year 3 will be 7 or 8 years old, with most of them having their 8th birthday during the school year.  The class teachers are Mrs C Macdonald and Mrs S Malacrida in Class 3MM and Mrs G White in Class 3GW.  They are are ably supported by the TAs –   Mrs James, Mrs Sissou, Miss Thomas, Mrs Shirran, Mrs Burnham and Mrs Robertson.

This is the start of the children's junior school education, otherwise known as Key Stage 2 (KS2) in the national curriculum.  Although there is a definite change in the way we expect our juniors to behave, the teachers know that such changes do not happen overnight, and go to great lengths to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible. The children have a term of swimming in either the spring or summer term.
