What are we learning?

Please refer to the Year 3 Curriculum map on the curriculum page so you can see what we are learning and when!




Monday: Indoor PE (Gymnastics)      Thursday: Outdoor PE (Netball)



Children will have a banded reading book and a 'Reading for Joy' book. Your child should be reading their school colour banded book more than once to aid with fluency and comprehension. Alongside this they can read another book of their choice to encourage 'Reading for Joy'.

Please read with your child daily, or as often as possible at home - recording in their diary when you listen to them read. Children will read to adult in school weekly.

It is important that children can not only read books but understand what they are reading.Try to discuss the story, characters and vocabulary with your children. Support with this can be found in the files at the bottom of this page.



Please check your child's homework diary for all homework pages. Their diary should be in class everyday.

Every Friday children will be given Maths and English homework - to be in by the following Wednesday to be marked. English will be Comprehension or SPAG. Spellings will also be given out every Friday and will be stuck into their diary. Weekly spellings are based upon a spelling rule that we will be focsuing on the following week.

It is vital that children are learning the spelling rules in order to apply them to their writing, rather than just learning the words they bring home. A google search of the spelling rule will bring up lots more words to practice!
