Year 3 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Year 3

This year children in Year 3 will be starting KS2 with the main focus being to consolidate learning from Year 2 and progress onto new concepts and learning of the KS2 curriculum. 

In English children will be learning to become interesting writers and better readers. There is a great focus on spellings in which children will learn different spelling rules to gain further confidence in their writing.  Also a great emphasis will be placed on cursive handwriting so pupils are aware of how to join their writing remembering their ‘lead ins’ and ‘lead outs’.

The Guided Reading sessions will allow opportunities for children to read books, make predictions giving reasons, ask questions, explain why particular vocabulary has been used by the author and retell the story in their own words using key vocabulary.

In maths concepts will be divided into different terms and children will build on their mathematical knowledge as the year advances. Throughout the year pupils will consolidate number by identifying the value of digits, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing applying their learning in real life problems.
