Year 3 Curriculum


At Freegrounds Junior school we adopt a thematic approach to learning and learn through topics, however discrete subjects are taught where relevant. The topics develop key skills and knowledge in different curriculum areas through a common theme. The topics are designed to be engaging and relevant to the children as well as being driven by our curriculum drivers of:

  • Promoting positive mental health and wellbeing
  • Learning Outdoors
  • Celebrating the diversity of Britain
