    Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags. You also have a Spelling Shed login for use to further practise spellings at home.


    Spelling Shed -

    Your child's weekly spelling list will be uploaded to Spelling Shed for further practise. Log ins can be found in the front of your child's reading record.


    Reading Record

    Please use your child’s reading record to keep a record of the books your child reads and to enter a comment about their reading. These may be books they have brought home from school, ones they have borrowed from the library or an e-library book. This record will help us to know what your child can do and inform us about the range of books they have read. We will also write in the record when your child has read in school and provide an appropriate next step for them to practise, e.g. a particular tricky word or grapheme.


    In Year 3, children continue to learn to write different types of texts and we use model texts to highlight the key features of these texts before children create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we will be learning in Year 3.
