This is the first year of Key Stage 2. The day is slightly longer for the children.
We use a topic based approach to learning so that lessons are engaging, challenging and productive.
Teachers base learning on prior attainment so that all children are catered for in the class regardless of their ability. Lessons are differentiated so that all children will learn.
The children are taught literacy, numeracy, science and RE as separate subjects. The other subjects are taught through the creative curriculum. We make links with learning where ever possible. More information about the National Curriculum can be found on the Department for Education website and in the information document, The National Curriculum In England.
They will be given homework. You will receive a letter at the start of the year informing you which days they will have homework and what is expected of them.
See the Year 3 Curriculum Maps for more details.
