In Year 3 there is a focus on handwriting, grammar and spelling. Handwriting is a key component to ensure work is presentable and legible. Weekly spellings can be practised on the spelling sheet sent out and on the spelling shed website, which is linked at the bottom of the page. We also would expect children to practise the 100 year 3/4 common exception words.
Every day the children have an opportunity to read in guided sessions. They also have the chance to read and discuss books that they enjoy. It is expected for children to read daily. They are able to choose a new library book weekly and are encouraged to change their banded book when ready.
In Maths our priority is to ensure that the children understand and consolidate their learning before progressing to next stage. We use concrete resources and pictorial examples to help with their learning for more abstract concepts.
To assist with their learning in the classroom, at home you could help your children practise the times tables up to the 12x table, expose them to money (coins) and focus on telling the time on an analogue and digital clock.
Every day the children have the opportunity to practise their times tables on a paper copy of TT Rockstars. We encourage the use the TT Rockstars website every day to support their learning in class. There is a link to the website at the bottom of this page.
PE will be taught on Wednesdays and Fridays.
