Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

I and Mrs Molloy look forward to working with you and your child during this academic year.  Together, we will ensure that your child is supported throughout the year.  This year, your child will be building on their knowledge from KS1 to become independent, mature learners. 

If you have any questions or concerns, I am around after school or alternatively you can arrange a more convenient time with me at the office.

Once again, I look forward to working with you over the year and supporting your child throughout this year at St. Anne’s.
