Year 3 Curriculum

Guided Reading

Guided reading is always our first lesson of the day where children are given opportunities to develop their reading skills through a variety of texts. The texts we will be covering this year are: 

  • The Firework Maker's Daughter
  • The Wild Way Home
  • The Great Chocoplot
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory



Seagulls begin every maths lesson with a 10 minute starter working on a specific skill for our year group. This is practical and helps to engage the children with their learning. We often sing times-table songs and learn different ways to remember how to answer questions. 

As often as we can, we follow the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract (CPA) approach to learning to offer opportunities for all types of learners to grasp different methods. 


Children will learn a new skill, apply this practically using number squares, multi-link cubes etc, and then use this knowledge to answer some fluency and problem solving questions. 


An overview of the topics we will be teaching this year:

TermMaths Topics Taught
AutumnPlace Value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.
SpringMultiplication and Division, Length and Perimeter, Fractions, Mass and Capacity.

In Literacy, we will be covering a range of texts to help the children develop their writing skills for a number of purposes. Newspaper reports, creative stories, persuasive letters, non-chronological reports and diary entries are just some of the writing opportunities given to the children over the year.

AutumnEdward Tulane, How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth, Stone Age Boy.
SpringBeowulf, Arthur and the Golden Rope.
SummerCharlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Great Kapok Tree



At break times, we are very lucky to be able to provide a piece of toast and fruit for the children to enjoy. They eat their snacks whilst listening to a class text being read aloud. Our current class text is The BFG by Roald Dahl. 


In the afternoons, our lessons consist of RE, Topic, Art and DT, PSHE, Science, PE and Spanish. 

Please remember that I use Marvellous Me to communicate homework and messages back to you.
