Welcome to Year 3


From Year 3 to Year 6 pupils follow a topic based curriculum which incorporates all National Curriculum subjects. Core texts and topic books (e.g. books related to the Romans) are used in reading and writing lessons. Generally maths is taught discretely.
Maths is taught through 'Power Maths’, a programme which supports a teaching for mastery approach. Lessons and activities are designed to be taught using problem-solving approaches to encourage pupils’ higher-level thinking. The focus is on working with pupils’ core competencies, building on what they know to develop their relational understanding.
Writing is taught through a range of exciting stimuli which includes books, film clips, artefacts, and real life experiences. We strive to equip children to develop a rich vocabulary which can help them bring their writing to life. Basic skills and non - negotiables underpin writing in all areas of the curriculum. Teachers model the writing process and demonstrate the ambitious high standards expected of all children.


Below are some information sheets for parents and carers outlining English and maths expectations for each year group.
