Year 3 – Drew Class

Welcome to Year 3!

Year 3 is taught by Mr Sanderson supported by Miss Martin. We have very high aspirations for all children in year 3 and will be challenging them all to reach their full potential.


In Year 3, the children follow the National Curriculum. English sessions are taught through the Talk for Writing approach. Children’s reading and writing will develop through reading, analysing and responding to high quality texts. Maths sessions follow the White Rose Maths teaching sequence and progressions. Mastery of Maths through practical, pictorial and abstract experiences will ensure children have the deepest understanding possible.

Our foundation subjects, Geography, History, Science etc, are taught through the Cornerstones curriculum. This topic themed approach ensures children cover the national curriculum through a broad range of exciting, progressive learning activities.

Children read for 30 minutes daily and their reading progress is tracked through the Accelerated Reader software. After reading a text that’s suitably challenging, the children take quizzes to check their understanding of the book they’ve read. The software then recommends a new, suitable book for them.

In Years 3 and 4 the learning journey continues. Pupils develop skills – the dreams and aspirations they have been developing start to come true and they grow tremendously, experiencing success along the way.  Children become innovators and develop their individual learning style through our Lillington Learning behaviours.
