There are 90 children currently in Year Three, split across 3 classes of 30 children.In Year Three we strive to ensure the children are engaged and excited to learn through our creative curriculum.Year three is a challenging year with new routines and the children are encouraged to develop their independence. We learn in a cross curricular way so writing, science, history, geography and other subjects are integrated into our projects.


Children will continue to earn credits for reading at least three times per week (with an adult signature) and homework will be set each Friday and is due back into school on a Wednesday.

The children’s PE kits will need to include clothing suitable for inside and outside PE lessons:

  • Shorts
  • Tee-shirt
  • Trainers or plimsolls for games (barefoot for gym and dance)
  • Tracksuit bottoms
  • Sweatshirt
  • Trainers or plimsolls
The year so far...

Term 1: Commotion in the Ocean

We have begun the year with our project ‘Commotion in the Ocean’. During this six week topic the children will be exploring the depths of the underwater world. The topic is based upon a book entitled ‘Dougal’s Deep Sea Diary.’ Here an intrepid explorer fulfils his curiosity by following his dreams of becoming a scuba diver.



Literacy skills (writing and reading) are imperative to the children’s education and will be taught throughout this project. For example, we will be learning to write diary entries from our underwater expeditions, create a descriptive piece of writing based upon Atlantis and constructing informal letters. In Year 3 there is a huge focus on the children becoming more responsible for their learning therefore they will be challenged to check and improve their own work wherever possible.
