Welcome to our Year 3 Class Page.
We have an exciting year ahead of us in Year 3! Now that the children are in Key Stage 2, we will build on the knowledge and skills learnt in Key Stage 1 and the children will experience new and engaging learning opportunities.
In English, we study a wide range of core texts and we use these as the stimulus for a range of fiction and non-fiction writing. We continue to develop our handwriting style and we practise using a range of features when writing in different genre. Reading continues to be a high priority in Year 3. As children become fluent readers they move on to our Accelerated Reader Programme.
We have an exciting year ahead of us as we enjoy new topics such as rocks, soils and fossils, the Stone Age, Prehistoric Art and the Ancient Egyptians. We will also be going on Educational Visits connected to our studies to places such as the Chiltern Open Air Museum and the British Museum. In order for the children to achieve the best they can, we will continue to focus on mental and physical well-being including learning more about the Zones of Regulation.
To find out more information about our fascinating topics and the vocabulary we will be using, please read the Knowledge Organisers below.
