Year 3 Curriculum

We follow the Literacy and Language scheme of work in English. This has an emphasis on children accessing a range of texts to read and understand whilst providing many opportunities to write for all purposes. Please refer to the Year 3 English yearly overview in the curriculum area of our website, for a list of the grammar studied within our lessons.

Mathematics is an integral part of the curriculum. There is a focus on mastery in maths ensuring children become secure in the key skills of arithmetic and reasoning. We have been working on place value and written calculations during our Maths lessons. Please refer to the Year 3 Mathematics yearly overview, in the curriculum area of our website, for more information on future maths topics we will be studying.

All children have a 20 minute daily  Guided Reading session where they read a range of books, both fiction and non-fiction to their Class Teachers and  complete reading related activities.

The International Primary Curriculum encompasses all of the National Curriculum. Through this curriculum, 

children make connections with their learning. The more connections children make, the better they learn.

As we are a  Christian school, Christianity is taught as part of the curriculum. As a school, we also celebrate and learn  

about dfferent faiths. Our Christian values form a key part of who we are as a school and sit alongside the IPC Personal

Learning Goals.

The 12 Christian values we focus on are:

Generosity, Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship, Respect, Trust, Perseverance, Justice, Service, Truthfulness and Thankfulness.


Our specialist Physical Education coach Mr. Smith will deliver all aspects of the P.E. curriculum. The children will need their  P.E. kits on Tuesdays for their lesson. 

The children will be learning Spanish with Miss Brownlees.
