Teaching Jobs in Year 3 Classes
Protocol Education works with primary and junior schools to find year 3 teachers to fill Key Stage 2 teaching jobs.
Year 3 marks the start of Key Stage 2 and entrance into Junior school. In Year 3 there is less of a focus on phonics and more emphasis on understanding and learning the spelling rules, as well as attention to prefixes and suffixes. There are statutory spelling lists for Year 3 and 4, so schools will split these across the two years, with teachers adding additional topic-linked words or words they feel their class needs to practise.
Mathematics in Year 3 has more of a times-tables focus. Quick recall of the required 3, 4, 8 and 50 times-tables (as well as the 2, 5 and 10 times-tables they’ve already learned in Year 1 and 2) is important as they form the foundation for a large majority of the work the children will cover within the year.
