Year 3

Welcome to Year 3. Here you can find information about the Curriculum being taught to your child whilst in Year 3 at Riverside Primary School. Our aim is to ensure that each child develops a lifelong love for learning where everyone is encouraged to develop, grow and reach their potential whatever his or her ability. The Year 3 Curriculum has been developed to ensure that it is progressive, follows a sequence of lessons which builds on prior knowledge and is committed to knowing more and remembering more. If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

The Curriculum

Your children will be exploring Invaders and Settlers, Life Around us and Natural Disasters throughout the year.  Children will grow their knowledge and skills of and within different subjects using key skills needed, for example as a Scientist, children will be exploring how to make a fair test.

As part of the Curriculum, children’s education is underpinned by our 6Rs which are further supported by our use of Character Muscles (also known as Character Traits) such as Teamwork, Imagination, Independence and Creativity.  We aim for these Character Muscles to support our children to grow into lifelong learners.
