In year 3, we aim to ensure all children know how to spell the common exception words from Year 2. The common exception word list is available by clicking the link below.
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 can find each of our half term's spelling lists by clicking the links below as they become available.
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.
