Year 3 Curriculum

In Year 3, there are more formal lessons based around the core skills in English, Mathematics, Guided Reading, Grammar, Handwriting and Spelling.

There are also creative curriculum opportunities focused on a thematic, progressive teaching approach, incorporating all aspects of our core curriculum in Humanities, Creative Art, Science, Design Technology and Religious Education. Religious Education is taught separately every week, as well as Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Education.

Children in Year 3 will experience French as a Modern Foreign Language.

The school is embedding the KRM Instructional Programme which is based on a whole-school immersion in reading real books. This approach impacts positively on longer-term language acquisition. The KRM programme is greatly benefitting our learners who are developing a love of books.

As well as a weekly Physical Education lesson, every child in Year 3 annually accesses a full programme of Forest School Outdoor Learning in addition to two terms of swimming, to enable the end of KS2 swimming outcomes to be realised.
