Numeracy and Literacy 

Throughout Year 3 the children will be taught a range of: 

  • Numeracy skills such as addition and subtraction, place value, simple multiplication and division, money, problem solving, 2D and 3D shapes, data handling and measurement.
  • Literacy skills including elements of handwriting, phonics, spelling, independent writing, guided reading, speaking and listening skills and role play/drama.

Where possible these will link to our topics. 



Children will experience a full range of activities through a topic based approach. The Autumn term’s topic is ‘The Rainforest’. Our other topics are based on light, dark and the ‘Power of the Force’ (Star Wars themed!) Dragons Tale, Our Amazing village (a local study ) and prehistoric adventures. Further information about each of these topics will be sent out on our half-termly newsletters. 


PE takes place on a Thursday and Friday. 

Please ensure that your child has relevant named kit. Hair should be tied back for P.E days and please provide tape for pierced ears.  


Reading at home 

To help support reading progress, please encourage your child to read several times a week and record this in the reading diary. To recognise the importance of reading, the children will be encouraged by having a display in class to show their progression on the reading stars. 



Homework (Maths and literacy) is set on a Friday and is due back on a Wednesday of the following week. 



Letters giving parents information from the teacher, head teacher, PTA or governors, will be given to the eldest child in the family. These should be in their book bags, on Tuesdays and Fridays. Year Group newsletters providing details about the topics and curriculum will be handed out every half term.
