Year 3 marks the start of Key Stage 2, four more years of learning.
In Maths children will start adding and subtracting with three-digit numbers, using column addition and subtraction. They will learn their 3, 4 and 8 times tables and continue to learn about fractions. They will learn about perimeter and also how to tell the time on a 12-hour and 24-hour clock. Children will learn more about geometry with right angles plus horizontal, vertical, perpendicular and parallel lines. Children will need to interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables.
In English children will increase their familiarity with a wide range of genres of writing. They will be preparing poems and play scripts to read aloud and perform. They will be thinking about inference and making predictions about what is going to happen in a story.
This year they will need to build on their handwriting work in Year 2, becoming more confident with joining letters. They will be thinking carefully about the setting, characters and plot in their stories and how to structure a text, remembering to use plenty of good description. They will need to use conjunctions such as when, before, after, while, so and because. This year, they will start to use speech marks when writing dialogue.
