In Y3, we pride ourselves on the smooth transition into Key Stage 2.  One of our aims is to ensure that children are confident and motivated to learn more independently. Our Y3 curriculum is designed to serve the needs of all pupils, using a variety of approaches and stimuli, including visits, visitors, theme days and engaging activities.  We are committed to making learning enjoyable in a safe environment protected from harm.  In Year 3, every pupil studies subjects prescribed by the National Curriculum, exploiting cross-curricular links where appropriate.  The following link details our overview of topics taught.
