Year 3 Expectations

​Year 3 develops the transition into Key Stage 2, therefore we have high expectations of the children becoming independent learners who take ownership and responsibility for their learning, as well as their everyday organisation.

 

Maths

•Place value
•Number bonds consolidation.
•Multiplication and division facts – 3, 4 and 8.
•Beginning to use formal written methods.
•Fractions.
•Time and money.

 

Reading

  • Changing books – Children will have the opportunity to change their reading books when needed during the school week.
  • Home Reading– We expect children in Year 3 to read a minimum of 3 times a week. In order for children to make their best progress across the curriculum, they will benefit from reading as much as possible with an adult or older sibling. Please write in their message book.​
  • We aim to hear your child read at least twice a week – once individually and once as part of a Guided Reading session.
  • Year 3 Reading Challenge – Children will get the opportunity to take part in challenges to encourage their home reading across a range of genres & celebrate their success.
  • Comprehension – In Year 3 we are working towards developing comprehension skills and a deeper understanding of the text.   

 

English

•We are covering a range of genres during the year. We will focus on improving sentence structure and independent writing.
•Handwriting – As a school we have taken on a new cursive approach to handwriting. Children will have regular opportunities to practise.
•Spellings –Children will learn spelling strategies and investigate and explore the morphology of words. Children will continue to develop their spelling using phonics as appropriate. 

 

Homework & Teacher Contact

Weekly
  • We expect every child to read a minimum of 3 times a week.
  • We will be introducing weekly spelling tests for children to take home and teaching ways of learning spellings in school.

Across the year
  • Maths skills. This will include addition and subtraction facts
  •        Topic related research or project. 


Please make sure you look in your child’s book bag each day to check for letters and return slips as soon as possible.
