Year 3

Welcome to Year 3.

We aim to provide a happy and secure learning environment where all children are encouraged to try their best and reach their full potential.

We ensure that the classrooms are an exciting and stimulating place to be which motivates and encourages them to work hard and achieve highly, whilst having fun.

It is a very special year for our children as they will prepare for and receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion. Our families work alongside us, in the preparation for our Sacraments and several times during the year, our parents support us as we share family Masses. Our celebrations of First Holy Communion are eagerly awaited each year by the whole School community and Parish.

We hope that the children have an enjoyable time with us in Year 3 and are successful and happy in all they do.

The teaching staff are Mrs Howley and Mrs Coley. The phase leader is Mrs Wilde.


We continue to use the IPC (International Primary Curriculum) program. For details of what your children will be researching, please click on the topic titles below:
