Years 3 and 4

Year 3, Primary Foundation

Strong foundations in English and maths are vital to building education success, and the best time to start is during the primary years.  We know that children have different strengths and weaknesses and our Primary Foundation lessons support weaker areas and extend strengths, letting each child progress at their own pace.

Course Content

For pupils in year three (aged seven to eight), our Primary Foundation course provides a rigorous grounding in English and maths at an appropriate pace and level for each child. 

English skills include: reading comprehension, spelling, grammar and vocabulary building.

Maths includes: mental and written arithmetic, as well as a wide range of curriculum topcis such as fractions, decimals, time, money and worded problems.
