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 and times tables to be learnt that week, on times tables rockstars. They will be tested every Friday. 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 afternoon and on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that they have their PE kit in school for these days. During winter it is recommended that children have a pair of jogging bottoms as it can be a bit chilly outside!


Our topic this term is Extreme Earth and Wild Weather. We will be learning about volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis as well as hurricanes, tornadoes and other extreme weather and the race to the Antarctic. We are all very excited about this topic, particularly as we touched on it when we looked at Pompeii.


Thank you for all of your support!
