In year 3, we set weekly spellings which the children learn in school and at home. The spelling patterns and activities are taken from our No Nonsense Spelling scheme. The children are then tested on these spellings the following week. You will receive further information about this at our Meet The Teacher evening and it will also be sent home if you are unable to attend.
In year 3, we also begin to work on the statutory National Curriculum spelling words for year 3 and 4. You can find this list of words below. These are words that the children are expected to know and spell correctly in their writing by the end of Year 4.
To help children learn their spellings, there are a number of strategies that can be used. Have a look at these spelling strategies posters for ideas.
