Year 3 and Year 4 Curriculum and Expectations

 

With the new National Curriculum, the Department for Education has produced new expectations for the end of each curriculum year. These will replace the old system of levels and provide you as parents with a clear idea of what the children should be achieving at the end of the year.

Below you will find the expectations for Year 3 and Year 4  in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. We have also produced ‘deepening’ targets for parents to show you the targets that the children will be working towards if they have met all of the ‘expected’ targets to master their learning skills.

 

As a school we shall report your child’s progress against these end of year expectations at parents' evenings during the year. The following terms will be used:

·         Your child is not on track to meet the end of year national expectations.

·         Your child is on track to meet the end of year national expectations .

·         Your child is on track to exceed the end of year national expectations.

 

Any extra support you can provide in helping your child or children to achieve these will benefit them greatly.
