P3 Term 1 Overview

Primary 3

Term 1


This is an overview of what we are learning in school.

Please support your child by discussing and reinforcing at home.



  • Full Stops and capital Letters
  • Writing in sentences
  • We will be talking about authors, illustrators, fiction and non-fiction.
  • We are encouraging the children to write independently. Please encourage the children at home to write a few sentences. We praise the children for having a try at more difficult words rather than correcting every mistake. This builds their confidence in writing




We are reviewing our policy on sending reading books home as this is key to the children's progress. We are still reading together in class.

The children still love to hear a story, please encourage reading for enjoyment by reading with your child. This might be on-line books or books from home. Ten minutes a day can make a huge difference.

  • Numbers up to 50 (Nov/Dec)
