Welcome to Year 3
We would like to wish you and your child a big, warm welcome to Northmead Junior School. Year 3 is a special stage in your child's education. Importantly, it is a time when they start to grow their social, moral and creative skills as well as develop a real hunger to learn. That's why we hold our school motto of 'Try more, learn more, achieve more!' so close to our hearts. We hope that your child will be very happy this year.
If you have any concerns, please come and chat to us after school (check with the school office first to make sure we are available).
Follow the links at the bottom of this page to find out what we will be studying each term in Year 3.
