Years 3 and 4
An opportunity to begin to take responsibility for their own learning.
Year 3 sees the beginning of the steady transition from the Junior to Senior part of the school. Pupils attend daily assemblies with the older pupils and are involved in senior sports days and other activities. Their academic programme broadly follows the National Curriculum and encourages them to develop a positive attitude to study and a sense of independence as they progress through the school. At this stage, the creative skills required for subjects such as Music and Drama begin to develop.
Class work is supplemented by field trips throughout the year, for example, to the British Museum and London Zoo. Weekly homework activities provide the pupils with an opportunity to begin to take responsibility for their own learning.
Pupils are streamed in maths from Year 4.
