Year 3 is the start our of Prep school, when pupils at Hendon Prep transition from the National Curriculum to the more challenging ISEB (Independent Schools Examination Board) curriculum for the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.
By starting the ISEB curriculum as early as Year 3, at Hendon Prep we build gradually towards our end goals, preparing our pupils so that they feel confident to meet the challenges of the 11+ process.
This broader curriculum, which is delivered by subject specialist teachers has been devised to stimulate and challenge our Year 3 pupils, giving them the confidence they need to begin to question and inquire for themselves and become critical thinkers.
PSHE lessons provide an opportunity for pupils to explore their growing level of responsibility, whilst feeling supported by the guidance and encouragement of their teachers.
Fridays afternoons are devoted to sport for our Prep pupils and Year 3 pupils take part in a wide variety of sporting activities including, rounders, athletics, tag rugby, hockey, football and cricket, depending upon the season. Year 3 pupils will also swim for one term per year and have a weekly PE session.
