Y3 Residential

Each year, we invite the Year 3 children to come for a sleepover in the school hall. For many children, this is their first night away from home and helps provide a stepping stone to longer residential experiences in other years. 

Y3 Homework

At Mayhill we see the purpose of home learning as the following:

  • Consolidating and reinforcing skills and understanding, particularly in English and Maths.
  • Exploiting resources for learning of all kinds at home and developing the learning environment from the school to home.
  • Encouraging pupils, as they get older to develop the confidence and self-discipline needed to study on their own, and preparing them for the requirements of secondary school.

For more detailed information, see the Home Learning Policy on our 'Policies' page.

    Published 06/02/19, by Y3 pupil

    On Wednesday 6th February, Year 3 had a fabulously creative day making board games to teach players all about keeping safe online. 

    We considered what we already know about e-safety and then discussed how the choices we make online leave behind a ‘digital footprint’ which reveals information about us.
