Year 3 Curriculum Overview
In Year 3 this term, we are learning how to read and write a range of non-fiction, fiction and poetry. We will be continuing to explore a range of texts, including those written by Pie Corbett. This includes descriptive pieces and wishing tales. It would help your child enormously if you could support their learning by encouraging them to read a selection of fiction and non-fiction books. The children are allowed to borrow two books at a time from the Active Learning Library and we are also fairly close to both Britwell and Slough libraries. There is also a wealth of resources on the internet.
In Maths we will continue to develop quick recall in times tables (3, 4, 8) as well as number bonds up to 100. We are learning how to tell the time to the nearest minute, as well as looking at measurement and money. It would be helpful if you could support your child to tell the time and to use money when out in real life situations, as little and often is the best approach for these topics. If you would like to know what methods your child is being taught, please do not hesitate to email your child’s class teacher.
In other subjects, we’re investigating forces and magnets and rocks and soils in Science. In Geography, we are learning about the water cycle and History we are looking into the monarchy and castles. In RE, we are learning about Christianity and in PSHE we will be exploring how we grow and change throughout our lives.
Many thanks for all the support you give your child. It is very important that we continue to work in partnership with you to ensure they make the most of their learning opportunities.
