Year 3

In Year 3 and Year 4 we strive to create independent learners who are actively involved in developing new skills and understandings and relating them to practical situations. We encourage our students to work in teams, take a risk with their learning and celebrate the sense of satisfaction that overcoming challenges can bring.

Highlights in Term 1:


  • Writing: Focus on the Narrative, Recount and Procedure styles of writing
  • Word Study: Soundwaves Units and persuasive language.
  • Reading groups: Developing comprehension and independent reading through Café reading, web based research and Guided Reading.


  • Term 1 focused areas of mathematics are Place Value and Measurement.
