Welcome to Year 3. This is the first year of Key Stage 2. For the majority of children, there will be less of a focus on phonics and more emphasis on understanding and learning spelling rules. In maths, the children will begin to deepen their understanding and focus on their times tables, primarily consolidating knowledge and understanding of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and learning the facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. There is no formal testing in Y3. However, we will assess your child during the year to see if they are at the expected standard for English and Maths and help us to decide how best to support their learning. Homework is sent home on Mondays and is due back in on Thursdays. PE takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so please ensure that your child comes dressed in the correct kit on those days. There is a spelling test and a times tables check on a Friday.
