We are following a spelling scheme called No Nonsense, which covers all the Y3 patterns, in addition we are doing extra daily phonics for some children who need extra practice. We sent home the spellings your child needs to learn... if you didn't get it (before Christmas) please ask! Check out the list of Y3/4 expected spellings. Spelling Year 3 and Year 4





 We are striving to raise standards in homework alongside presentation. Thank you to all parents for their support with this. We have had some excellent pieces of homework and the children have enjoyed sharing their work with their peers. We will continue to rotate subjects. In addition your child may get some extra during the week. 



From September, children in Year 3 will be taking part in daily DEaR (Drop Everything and Read) workshops.This will include quizzing on Books they have read as part of the Accelerated Reader programme. It is vital that they read regularly and for enjoyment.  In addition there is an extra incentive of a Golden Ticket, read 5 times in 7 days, sign the Reading Record book and send it back to school! All children who have 5 signatures get their name in the Golden pot. Each month a name will the drawn out and that child can get a Golden Ticket and swap it for a book.


The 'Words for Life' site has some good recommendations for reading lists appropriate for Year 3 children. Click on this link: Age 7- 11  to see a summary.
