British Values   

As part of our British Values in Year 3, we will be learning about democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together.  One of the ways we will be doing this is by holding class votes.  We vote for our School Council representatives and also vote for our Behaviour Ambassador each half term.


Mutual respect and tolerance of each other are part of the values underpinned in Year 3, and the importance of accepting, respecting and valuing the feelings and views of others is embedded in the day to day learning.  We will be learning about similarities and differences, and how these should be celebrated.    Children are always encouraged to develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to express their needs and opinions. 


The children are taught the importance of having rules and routines in place within the school and classroom, and how they contribute to making our school a safe and happy environment.  They are always encouraged to think about their actions and make good choices.  Our Behaviour Ambassador will choose a weekly 'behaviour star' to celebrate this.


We will work together to help one another and to make Year 3 Poplar a great class!

Homework is set every Friday to be returned by the following Tuesday.  Children are given a piece of English and a piece of Maths work to consolidate their learning in class.  At times there may be homework related to other aspects of the curriculum.  There will also be some research topics to find out about at different times of the year.  Please support your child with their homework and encourage them to try their best.  Thank you!

Reading Olympics


As part of our Reading Olympics we encourage children to read daily at home.  Please support your child to read on a daily basis and sign their Reading Journals.  We aim to hear all of the children read in class through individual and guided reading.

Creative Curriculum


Our topics enable us to develop and apply knowledge and skills in different areas of the curriculum, such as history, geography and art.  These lessons take place during the afternoon.  Where possible, we go on educational visits or invite visitors in, so that we develop our learning and understanding more.  These are the topics that we will be covering each half-term.
