How can I help my child in Year 3?


Practise weekly spellings

You can support your child at home by helping them to learn their all-important weekly spellings — these are tested once a week.


Continue reading

Reading is key this year and there are plenty of ways you can help. It is still important to listen to your child read regularly. Ask questions about what they’re reading. This will encourage your child to think deeply about their reading, whether they’re reading aloud or independently. A fun way to encourage expression is to use silly voices – and even to make the occasional deliberate mistake – as allowing your child to correct you helps them to see why certain punctuation changes the way we read aloud.


Diversify their reading

Give your child access to as many different styles of writing as you can. This will assist with their reading fluency and expand their vocabulary and knowledge. 


Practise maths

In maths, you can support your child at home by practising the relevant times tables (3, 4, and 8 times tables – as well as the 2, 5, and 10 times tables from Year 1 and 2) regularly. This can be done in many ways and different children respond to different styles.



Please ensure that your child comes to school in their school PE uniform on their designated day. This year PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday.
