 Year 3 is an important year in your child’s learning. Children should have learnt their 3, 4, 6 and 8 times tables by the end of the year.

In Year 3, we will be teaching children to develop as writers , enhancing the effectiveness of what they have written.  Find out what we have been up to each term by clicking the links at the bottom of this page!

What we are learning this term 

In the Summer term we will be focusing on Fair Trade as part of our ‘We are Innovators’ topic.

In English, we will be reading the texts ‘La Mariposa’  by  by Francisco Jimenez ‘The Journey’ by Francesca Sanna and The Village that Vanished’ by Ann Grifalconi. The children will be focusing on narrative as well as non-fiction writing, such as newspaper reports.

In Maths, we will be focusing on time, measuring mass, capacity and temperature and shape. Throughout the term we will continue to practise our times table daily.
