Time in Year 3
In Year 3, children improve their independence and learn valuable skills for their time in KS2. We have lots of exciting topics this year, including India, the Stone Age and Ancient Egypt. We teach English through a variety of texts that will enrich the children's learning and we use a range of concrete resources to teach mathematical concepts.
Our termly overviews show the range of topics covered throughout the year. Please see below for our curriculum maps that give you more information about the aspects of the topics we will cover.
Throughout the year, we will be introducing different vocabulary to the children as part of the topics they will learn. Please see the links below for specific vocabulary for each term which you may begin to introduce at home too:
In year 3, children will receive spelling homework every two weeks. This will be focussed around the pattern that they are learning at school that week. The spelling pattern is explicitly taught at school which they are then expected to practise it at home. The children will be given a task to help them to practise it. Tasks are varied to aid them to apply it to a variety of situations. They will be completing many activities in school too to help them learn their spellings. Please encourage your child to practise and use these spellings and as well the Year 4 common exception words.
