Magic Maths

In Maths lessons, we have covered place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, measuring length and perimeter, and some fractions.

You can continue your maths learning by following the White Rose Maths lessons in the link below.

Remember you are expected to know the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, and the 3, 4 and 8 times tables by the end of Year 3.

Super Spelling

Try to access Spelling Shed on a weekly basis to work on your weekly list of 10 spelling words or phonic sounds.

Ready for Reading

Regular practice at home will make a real difference!

Children in Year 3 should read most nights of the week for at least 10 minutes.

Record the books you read in your Reading Record Book and there is also space for you to write a comment about your book. Please could you ask your parents to initial your Reading Record Book each time you make an entry.

Book Reviews

After every 5 weeks, there is a page for you to choose one book you have read in the last month to review. This does not have to be your favourite book and you do not have to wait until the end of the month to complete this.
