Year 3

Week beginning 19th April 2021

Welcome back to our final term in Year 3. We hope you have had a lovely and restful Easter break.

Our PE day is Wednesday 28th April. Please come in PE kit for the day.

Project – Name to be decided. Learning will be based all around sport.


In English this week we are going to be focusing on use of grammar and looking at comprehension and how to answer inference style questions.

Our spelling test will be on Friday 23rd April. We appreciate the spellings are beginning to feel quite tricky but these are spellings that are set by the National Curriculum and we have done our best to break them down into manageable chunks with a similar theme. Please continue to reassure your children that we do not wish them to worry about their spellings, all we ask is they try their best. The spellings for this week are: caught, naughty, early, earth, eight, eighth and learn. Please find here our updated weekly list – Updated – Year 3 spelling list for 2020-2021

In Maths, we are continuing to focus on fractions, looking at counting in tenths and tenths as decimals.

Times Table Rockstars

All of the children have been sent home a username and password for Times Table Rockstars (TTRS). This is a fantastic website that we use throughout Key Stage 2 to help consolidate and continuously practice the children’s times tables. By the end of Year 2, children should be able to recall the 2, 5 and 10 tables and Year 3 the 3, 4 and 8’s. At the end of Year 4, all children nationally will complete a multiplication test up to 12×12 and these will be asked randomly so it is important they can recall them out of order.
