Are you ready for reading?

 

Children in Year 3 should read most nights of the week for at least 15 minutes.

Record the books you read in your Reading Record Book and there is also space to write a comment about the book. 

Are you ready for writing?

In Year 3, you will learn to plan in detail, to use imaginative ideas, and to write with a particular purpose in mind. This includes:

  • talking about similar pieces of writing, and using these to help you plan your own
  • using a rich vocabulary and a range of sentence structures
  • creating settings, characters, and plots for stories
  • using simple organisational devices (for example, headings and sub-headings) for non-fiction
  • proof-reading for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

Are you super at spelling?

In Year 3, you continue to work on the spelling patterns you have begun in previous years, but this year there is less of a focus on phonics and more emphasis on understanding and learning the spelling rules, as well as attention to prefixes and suffixes.

Every week you will be given a list of 10 spelling words to learn for homework - these are usually tested once week.

Are you magic at maths?

Maths in Year 3 has more of a times tables focus. Quick recall of the 3, 4, and 8, times-tables (as well as the 2, 5, and 10 times-tables you’ve already learned in Year 1 and 2) is important as they form the foundation for much of the work you cover this year.

You will begin to use column addition and subtraction of three-digit numbers this year, as well as learning about multiplication and division, and using — and applying — your times tables knowledge. We also cover fractions, angles, parallel and perpendicular lines, length and perimeter, and shape.

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.

Are you a science sensation?

In Year 3 Science, you will learn about plants, rocks, light, forces and magnets, and animals (including humans). How to work scientifically and writing up your investigations is also a key part of this year’s science curriculum.
