Prep 3

In Prep 3, our children are encouraged to develop their independence further through a variety of exciting activities. We recognise the importance of nurturing talents in all curricular areas and so have a wide-ranging and diverse curriculum to help with this. Children are encouraged to have enquiring minds, asking questions if ever unsure, within a warm, nurturing environment.

Activities encompassing the core concepts of Literacy and Numeracy build upon previous knowledge by using stimulating and illuminating real-life contexts to fire our children's enthusiasm. At TGA Milngavie these include learning in our outside classroom. A love for reading is further established through a variety of reading experiences, including comprehension activities to ensure texts are understood.

We encourage excellent presentation of work from all of our pupils; weekly handwriting lessons introducing cursive script help to achieve this.

We believe that learning another language is a key skill for young people today. In Prep 3, weekly French classes are delivered by specialist teachers across our three sites.

In addition to this, we have exciting class topics such as 'Homes Around the World (incorporating Electricity)', 'Romans' and 'Minibeasts'. Barloch Moor provides a rich and exciting platform to learn about ‘Minibeasts’ in the summer term. Our children get the opportunities to go on stimulating trips related to their topic, along with guest speakers coming into school to share their expertise with us.

Come and visit us to see for yourself. We'd love to meet you!
