Year 3 Curriculum Map
Maths
This year we have changed our method of teaching and learning Maths across the school, choosing to adopt an exciting ‘Mastery’ approach to deliver the National Curriculum.

This is based on the ‘Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract’ journey, which encourages children in all year groups to use ‘concrete’ objects and equipment (such as place value counters, dienes or cubes) to physically make and manipulate numbers and perform calculations.

They then learn to visualise calculations as pictures (particularly bar models) before moving on to represent them as abstract, more formal written methods.




Welcome back to the Summer term.

Welcome back to school, I hope you and your child/ren enjoyed a relaxing Easter break. Please click on the link at the bottom of the page to download our most recent newsletter, which includes details of what we will be learning about during the Summer Term, as well as our newly launched Reading Challenge.


The school is looking bright and colourful thanks to new signs, tables, chairs and displays, as well as freshly decorated corridors. The weather outside is not always so bright though, so please ensure your child brings a raincoat into school!


I look forward to seeing you around the school, and I really hope that your children have a fun and challenging Summer term in Year 3.

Mr R. Davies,
Year 3 Class Teacher

















Reading rewards.

Children’s ability to read fluently underpins all of their learning and their ability to access the Key Stage 2 curriculum.

So, thank you in advance for your continued support with your child’s daily reading at home. Please write comments and your initials in their Reading Record every time they read, as we will be rewarding regular readers.
