Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Teacher: Miss Vaz, Teaching Assistant: Mrs Lambe

Year 3 have had a fantastic start to the term. They've really enjoyed getting stuck into their "theatre" vehicle. We've had a backstage tour of Stafford Gatehouse and saw Madagascar the Musical live at the Regent Theatre! We have also been lucky enough to take part in a theatre workshop led by Andy Reiss, director of the theatre company "Beyond The Barricade".


During Autumn term, our vehicle is: 

"It's Show Time!"

This learning vehicle will have a focus on the world of theatre and entertainment. The outcome of the vehicle is that the children will produce their very own Y3 Showcase, for parents and friends to watch.
