Welcome to the Sharks and Dolphins
COVID-19: We are really sad that we cannot see all of you at the moment. School is open to children of critical workers and vulnerable children. However, due to the overwhelming applications for places we have had to prioritise.The guidance is to 'stay at home' where possible in order to reduce the spread of this very virulent strain of COVID-19. So please, if you are a critical worker and do not need a place in school, let us know. We are very aware that some of you will be struggling with home learning, especially if you are also trying to work from home - we are doing our best to help you whilst also teaching in school! Please contact us if you have any problems or need some support. We are here to help. If you cannot manage all of the activities, do not worry. Be mindful of your own and your family's wellbeing and health. Thank you.
All home learning will be posted on TEAMS . The teachers will also be doing 'live' meet ups and will let you know when these are.
Welcome to Year 3!

Here is some information for children new to Year 3 in September 2020:
Read our children's guide to help support the move into Year 3.
Please click on the links to find out more information about your teachers:
Please note that from September due to COVID-19 guidance we are operating staggered starts and pick up times.
The arrangements for year 3 are: 8.45 start -enter via Early Years door (same door as when they were in year 2). Collect from key stage 2 playground at 3pm- children will be brought out onto the playground to be dismissed. Please can parents move on quickly at drop off/pick up times to avoid congestion and to support social distancing.
So, you've left Key Stage 1 and finally made it up all those stairs. You're now the grown-up kids that all of the younger children look up to and admire! You're guaranteed to have a blast in Year 3, with plenty of opportunities to take on some extra roles and responsibilities as well as experiencing a wide range of new activites now you are all grown up.
You and your fellow classmates will spend half a year transforming yourselves into your very own Meadows clarinet orchestra with a specialist music teacher taking you from part-time squeaker to full-time music legend! If you love sports and being active, there are many more amazing sports clubs you can join both during the school day and after school. You may even get the chance to represent your school and compete against other schools in sports tournaments such as hockey, tri-golf and football. If you love singing then you will definitely want to join the school choir! But perhaps the most exciting part of Year 3 is our big Spring production! Last year's musical left the whole school 'Buzzing about Bees', we wonder what this year's performance will be?
We love to take our learning beyond the classroom with a range of activites in and around the school grounds. We will all travel back in time together to learn all about the first people in Britain and discover all about those Rotten Romans in our exciting history trips! Your brain will explode with wonder when we visit the Think Tank Science Museum in Birmingham for our science topics. We explore our own location in more detail learning about the rocks of Bromsgrove. Back inside the classroom, we will help you develop your computing skills as you create your very own video games! If art is more your thing, we will explore a range of artistic materials including using clay for scultures as well as developing your techniques across a wide range of different art projects throughout the year. So long as you love working hard, trying new things, helping others and having fun with your learning, you will have an amazing time in Year 3. Sound good to you? Then we'll look forward to welcoming you into our Year 3 family in September.
