National Expectations for Year 3 in English

Spelling:

The National Curriculum outlines the spelling rules that children will learn in Year 3 and Year 4:

  • Use further prefixes and suffixes and understand how to add them (such as dis– and –sure)
  • Spell further homophones (such as except/accept)
  • Spell words that are often misspelt
  • Use the possessive apostrophe accurately (plurals)
  • Use the first two or three letters of a word to check its spelling in a dictionary

Reading: We encourage children to read a wide variety of fiction genres, as well as non-fiction. Your support at home can make a crucial difference to your child's reading progress, which in turn often has a significant effect on the quality of their writing. Encourage your child to answer questions about the text, try to predict what happens next, write a book review.......

 

Time tables: The government expectation is that nearly all children will be fluent in all times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of their next school year (Year 4). Regular class work on the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 and 11 times tables this year would ideally be supplemented by quizzing and activities at home. Links to some suggestions are below. Topmarks has links to a wide variety of computer-based education resources and games.
