Homework & Spellings

Welcome to Year 3.

The children have had a brilliant first full week back looking at the book 'Journey' where they have produced story maps of the amazing adventures in the book and written their own versions of the story,

They have also been brilliant weather forecasters, explaining the weather and location of the Amazon Rainforest.

We expect they are very tired but we have been very impressed with their amazing attitudes they have shown to their learning this week.




In Year 3 we would love for your child to read as frequently as possible. Your child has a reading book and a Reading Record diary that you can write comments in. We are also keen to see children writing their own comments about what they have read! Each Wednesday, your child will be sent home with a reading comprehension activity. Please complete this with your child for the following Wednesday. 


Writing (We love writing!)

Every week your child has plenty of opportunities to write. We encourage the children to write at length in many different subjects. We also have a weekly Big Write session where we focus on writing lots of different text types, e.g. traditional tale, diary entry, explanation text.

BIG Write and the BIG Talk!

Every Thursday your child takes part in the Big Write. We would love for your child to discuss the Big Write with you so they are full of ideas for the session! You can find details on the Big Write on our homework page.
