Year 3 Expectations Transition in to Key Stage 2, therefore we have high expectations of the children becoming independent learners who take ownership and responsibility for their learning, as well as their everyday organisation; I am responsible for my learning I know how to present my work. I know what to do when I am stuck or finished. I know what I am expected to do. I can use the time given effectively. I can look after my own property. I can organise myself for the day ahead.
Reading Changing books – children will have the opportunity to change their reading books during the school day. Reading everyday – in order for children to make their best progress across the curriculum in year 3 they will benefit from reading everyday at home with an adult or older sibling. Please write in their message book We will hear every child read individually and in a group once a week.
Spelling and phonics Spellings – children will have weekly personalised spellings, linked to our Support for Spellings programme or key words as appropriate, to learn. As homework their spellings will be given out on a Monday and need to be practised daily in preparation for a test on Friday Phonics – 2 sessions per week, recapping on phase 5 and 6 of Letters and Sounds
Literacy We will be looking at a range of genres during the year, working with the children to improve sentence structure and independent writing. Over the next few weeks we will focus on reading and writing stories and performance poetry Handwriting – As a school we are all following the same handwriting scheme which the children will have regular opportunities to practise and see modelled. By the end of Year 3 it is expected that children join their writing and most will be writing in pen.
