Year 3 Curriculum Overviews

Welcome to Jamila Class


In Year 3 we begin our journey into KS2, we build on all the work that the children have completed in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. 

Mrs Wright is the class teacher and Year 3 are supported by Mrs Edge, Mrs Storer and Mrs Morris. Please feel free to contact any of us with queries; we enjoy working in partnership with parents and carers and our amazing pupils for the best outcomes for your children. 

In Jamila Class we are lucky to teach a variety of interesting topics, more detail about these can be found in the long term map document which provides a brief overview of the year. For more detail each term, our topic webs show the learning in specific subjects. Our favourite topics are those about The Stone Age to Iron Age and the Ancient Egyptians.

Reading continues to play an important part of the Year 3 curriculum and we work hard to instill a love of reading into all the children through individual reading and whole class reading activities. Although your child will be starting to read more independently, it is still really valuable for them to read daily to an adult at home, regardless of their ability. This valuable time can be an opportunity to tackle new words, discuss new word meanings, and enjoy discussing new texts together. We love hearing your children read in school which takes place daily/weekly/fortnightly depending on the needs of your child. We write comments in their reading record, and enjoy seeing your comments too.

Within school time, we will be focusing on a range of different rules and patterns. Mini tests will take place throughout the week on the learnt words, patterns and rules. As part of the spelling work at home, the children will be set spelling work on Spelling Shed each week which is linked to the pattern in school. We are striving for children to become confident spellers, who apply their knowledge in to all areas of writing.

Mathematics Homework
Times table work continues from where the children were in Year 2.They will have a set of questions to answer on Maths Shed. We also send out maths homework every week via Google Classroom these are questions based around the previous teaching; this homework gives you and your child an opportunity to practise and share the strategies that they are learning within school.

Learning Log
Details about learning log homework are sent out each term with activities linked to the topic focus of that term; we love seeing how creative the children can be.

Routine of the Day

Here are a few items that your child should have in school every day:

  • Book bag.
  • Water bottles - as we are a ‘Healthy School,’ we only allow water in the water bottles.
  • Coat- with the British weather being highly unpredictable, a coat needs to be in school everyday.
  • School reading book
  • A healthy snack for break time.
  • PE kit - this should be worn to school on our PE days.

Everyone in Year 3 looks forward to providing your child with the best opportunities and seeing them continue their journey through Key Stage 2.
