Year 3 Teacher - 3KG
I have been a teacher for eight years and love to have a sing and a dance in the classroom to make our learning as fun as possible. My favourite lessons are Art, Maths and Geography. In my free time, I enjoy going for walks and spending time with my family.
Miss K Harris
Year 3 Teacher - 3KH
I am a year 3 teacher at Webheath. My favourite subjects are PE, Science and Maths. I enjoy making lessons as active and practical as possible. My favourite part about teaching is helping to build children’s confidence and academic ability through a positive mental attitude. Outside of school, you will usually find me spending time with family or doing something physically active such as running.

In KS2 we use the Accelerated Reader Computer Program to develop, manage and monitor children’s reading skills. The children pick a book within their own ZPD range and read it at their own pace. We allocate at least 15 minutes a day to reading their book. When finished, they will take a short quiz online in school – this helps to home in on their reading skills and give an indication that they understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback on the children’s understanding and reading habits which the teacher then uses to help the children set targets and ongoing reading practice to ensure personal growth.
Daily ‘Book Club’ is also timetabled. This provides opportunities for the children to work in small groups with an adult to develop reading skills and build a love of reading, and it gives an opportunity to read books of choice for pleasure.
We use high quality text to deliver our English Curriculum and focused reading lessons are taught within a sequence of learning.
In Year 3, we focus on all children being able to recall and use the multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables.
