Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!  Our learning journey continues as children go into the first year of Junior School and the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Pupils will be expected to be more independent and have greater ownership of their learning but they will also enjoy more privileges associated with being in the Juniors; a bigger playground, joining the Choir, learning the violin and tin whistle.  We look forward to seeing you all flourish throughout the year.


St Teresa's offers a thematic approach to the curriculum, where we largely teach through topics or themes so that the work pupils do in different subjects is related.  Additional work is planned in Mathematics and English and this is increasingly the case as your child gets older.  A topic usually covers a term or half-term.


Our reading schemes are:

  • Sounds Write
  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • Ladybird Books Read It Yourself
  • Start Reading
  • Read Zone
  • Big Cat Books
  • Reading with Phonics
  • Fairytale Phonics
