National Expectations for Year 3 in English

 

Spelling:

The National Curriculum outlines the spelling rules that children will learn inYear 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

See: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/at-school/subject-guides/spelling-at-primary-school/

 

Your child's teacher is Mrs Startin. The class teaching assistant is Miss Hardwick.

 

PE: Children will need their PE kits on Tuesdays (outdoor PE) and Wednesdays (indoor PE). 10 weeks. 

 

Topic: This term, our topic is "Rumble in the Jungle", learning about Rainforests.

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.......

Spelling: We will be continuing the 'Read Write Inc Spelling' programme so please check your Read Write Inc log book and practice the spellings!

 

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.
