Foxes Class Y3
Welcome to the Year 3 'Fox Class' page. You will find homework, spelling weekly lists, times table practice and details about all of these within the Home Learning Section below. Spelling groups have been worked out using assessments of the children's Phase 3, 4 and 5 Phonics knowledge and the percentage of spellings known from the Year 1 and 2 Spelling list. Those children achieving less than 90% of the words on this list will be consolidating Year 2 spelling patterns and phonic knowledge to start with this year. Those achieving 90% or above will be starting to explore the spellings and spelling patterns from the Year 3 and 4 Spelling list. The lists are on the 'Spelling Guidance' page below, if you would like to support your child at home.
Also, more importantly to us in class is that your child can do the following, so spending time doing the activities below is preferable to doing lots of additional 'activities'.
- Times Tables Practice (Year 3 is a crucial year for times tables learning. Children are expected to learn multiplication facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables and to use that knowledge to multiply and divide two-digit numbers - for example, 15 x 4).
- Spellings (either the Year 1/2 list or the Year 3/4 list)
- Cursive handwriting practice.
- Reading. Not just the School banded book - read EVERYTHING! Recipes, online instructions, news reports, comics, signs, ingredients, shop notices, etc)
