Welcome to Year 3! We are the Badgers, known for being hardworking and loyal! We have lots of exciting things happening this term, please scroll down to view what we are doing in Maths, English and Topic.
Please look at the literacy non-negotiables to see what is expected in Year 3
This term the children will continue to develop their comprehension skills and also have lots of opportunities to enjoy reading independently, in small groups and as a whole class. Our focus will be on improving the children's knowledge and understanding of grammar and punctuation skills to ensure children continue to make large steps forward in line with the Government's requirements. As writers we will be developing our fiction and non fiction through a variety of genres and using technology to support.
