Expectations for Year 3

We have high expectations for all of the children in Year 3, and not only do we wish for them to be responsible learners but also responsible for their belongings. Please make sure all uniform is labeled clearly. We expect the children to be willing to learn and grow as individuals and be the very best they can be by respecting and growing in the Catholic ethos of our school. We ask that children will take every opportunity given to them to develop to reach their full potential and achieve their goals. All we ever ask in Year 3 is that everyone tries their best!



Reading: Reading is the most valuable homework that your child could ever do and in Year 3 it is expected that they read for about 15 minutes each day outside of school. Please actively encourage your child to read for pleasure.  They have been provided with a home reading record, which should be completed daily, detailing what they are reading and with whom. I ask for your support in encouraging and monitoring your child’s reading. This should be brought into school on a Wednesday so we can sign it and change the books.

Spelling: Every Friday, Year 3 will be tested on their spelling. This test will consist of 5 words from the Y3/4 statutory word list (set the Friday before) and 5 words that are chosen in relation to testing the spelling rule that we have been focusing on in lessons that week.

Times-tables: Please make sure your child is practising their timetables regularly; it is such an important part of their subject knowledge in maths. All children have a login to Timetable Rockstars which is a fun and engaging way to consolidate and extend their timetable knowledge.

 SPaG.com: Homework will be set fortnightly on SPaG.com and login reminders will be going out early next week. SPaG.com allows the children to consolidate and revise their learning. This should be completed independently, as it will be used as a tool to assess understanding.
