We follow the National Curriculum 2014. You can access information about the curriculum for Year 3 in the documents below. If you require any further information about the curriculum you can access the Department for Education website or contact school.
In line with national guidlines, pupils will study the four areas of Mathematics. These are number, measurement, geometry and statistics. Pupils will be taught to:
Number - count in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100; find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number; understand place value of 3 digit numbers; order numbers to 1000; read and write numbers to 1000; add and subtract 3 digit numbers; solve number problems; recognise, find and write fractions; add and subtract fractions with the same denominator; compare and order fractions with the same denominators; recognise equivalent fractions; recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables.
Measurement - measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm), mass (kg/g) and volume/capacity (l/ml); measure the perimeter of simple 2D shapes; add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using £ and p in practical contexts; tell and write the time from an analogue clock including 12-hour and 24-hour clocks; compare times in terms of seconds, minutes and hours; know the number of seconds in a minute and days in each month, year and leap year.
Geometry - draw 2D shapes and make 3D shapes; recognise 3D shapes in different orientations and describe them; recognise angles as a property of shapes; identify right angles; identify horizontal and vertical lines.
Statistics - interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables; solve one-step and two-step questions using information presented in scales bar charts, pictograms and tables.
The children study writing activities across both fiction and non-fiction genres. Vocabulary, grammar and punctuation are also taught as a dedicated lesson. There is a weekly long writing session. Spellings are given out as homework and tested the following week. Most children will be asked to choose an appropriate reading book, either from school or home, and this needs to be brought to school everyday. Guided reading sessions also take place regularly.
