Our Learning

Please see the link below for our curriculum overview. This provides you with an outline of the learning that will take place in Year 3 throughout this term. There will be multiple opportunities for children to immerse, engage, develop and apply their knowledge and skills throughout a whole host of focuses within the wider curriculum.



PE - Our PE day is on a Friday. On this day, children can come into school wearing their PE kit.

Forest School - This will also be on a Friday but please keep an eye on the Dojo page for specific dates.

Reading - We use Accelerated Reader. Children will select books from our library areas from within their reading range. Once they have completed a book, they will take a quiz to check their understanding of what they have read. They will then conference with their teacher before revisiting the library to choose their new book. 



Below are our Oracy Strands. When speaking and listening, we ensure that we use each of the small steps within the four strands appropriately, and have target areas. This term, our focus is around the Social and Emotional strand of Oracy. 


We use Oracy all throughout the curriculum to share ideas and opinions, agree and disagree with our peers, feedback and listen and engage with others. 


Some of the Oracy STEM sentences we are focusing on in Year 3 are:

I think/I found/I predict… because…

An argument for/against is…

If… then…

Because I know… I also know…

I believe… because…

My opinion/in my opinion… because 


The expectations for homework in Year 3 are based around the fluency in reading and number facts. 

Each day, your child will need to read and go onto TTRS. 

Activities completed at home can be recorded in home-school diaries.
