About Year 3

Year 3 is an exciting year for the children when they move from KS1 to KS2. We try to make the transition as enjoyable as possible for the children.

We have a number of exciting topics that are taught throughout the year. We have revised our curriculum to make it as relevant and interesting as possible for the children. Our thematic, skills based approach has been extended to incorporate a wider range of writing, mathematic and creative opportunities.

Term 5 and 6
