About Year 3

As Year 3 is the first year of the Juniors, we encourage the children to become as independent as possible. The children really enjoy the chance to take charge of their own learning and organise their belongings

Year 3

In Year Three, we study a range of exciting topics, such as Paintings and Photographs, The Generation Game, The Rainforest and the Stone Age. We make the learning as interactive as possible, and give the children hands on experiences of different topics. The children are encouraged to carry out their own research, and we carry on our learning through exciting trips and experience days.

 

In English, we study a range of text types, including traditional tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, short films such as Baboon on the Moon, picture books by Anthony Browne and adventure stories such as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. We love putting our own twists on the stories once we have learned them. During Guided Reading, we use the Reciprocal Reading program, which allows us to analyse texts in detail and develop our own opinions about them.

 

In mathematics we spend time learning our times tables and making sure that we understand the key skills of mental arithmetic by the time we leave Year Three.
