From the beginning of Spring Term 1, Year 3 will be doing their spellings a little differently. We will be sending home a list of spelling words to learn, rather than a set of 3 dictation sentences. These words will slot in with the writing that we are doing in our English sessions so will ensure that the children have the opportunity to utilise these in their everyday writing, not just their spelling tests.
These words will come home in the yellow ‘Home Spelling’ book that you have seen before and the test will take place on a Friday morning in the red ‘Spelling Test’ books that the children used to use. The children will continue to focus on learning their spelling words and the rules for how to use them in their spelling and phonics sessions on a daily basis.
Please continue to help your child practise their spellings at home as your support and help is invaluable.
Autumn Term 1 Home Learning
Well done for an amazing first half term of brilliant home learning! You have written some wonderful fact sheets about pharaohs, come up with some super rules for Ancient Egyptian law, used hieroglyphic numbers effectively and been amazingly creative. I’ve been so impressed with your pyramids, sundials, death masks and mummies.
I can’t wait to see what the next half term brings!
