Year 3 Curriculum Map - an overview of the Year 3 curriculum

Welcome to Year Three!


We have such a busy year ahead! On this page you will find updates about homework and activities taking place within the classroom. Keep checking and make sure you are up to date with any news and photos of our fun learning!


Every Monday children will receive a new set of spellings to be learnt that week. They will be tested the following Monday. Even though this is changed weekly, it is extremely important that you continue to remind your child of previous learning.


Children should be reading daily for 10 - 15 minutes with an adult or independently. They will be given time every day to change their home book and will read at least once a week with an adult in school. Yellow reading records should be signed every time a child is read with.


We have PE on a Monday morning and on a Wednesday afternoon. PE kit needs to be in every day as on non-PE days we will change shoes to do the daily mile in the afternoon. During winter it is recommended that children have a pair of jogging bottoms as it can be a bit chilly outside! 


On Wednesday afternoons, Year 3 have Forest School with Mr Jones. Hopefully, you will have received a message about clothing needed for these days (especially as the weather gets colder). Any questions, please ask the school office.


Our topic this term is FIREWORKS! We are learning about the history of Bonfire Night as well as about ceremonies and celebrations around the world that use fireworks. Please see above for our full curriculum map.


Thank you for all of your support!
