Welcome to Year 3
Our teachers are Mrs Ali, Miss Khatun, Miss Read and Mr Tish. We are delighted to be working with your children this year and aim to help them settle in to the new key stage with ease.
We have an exciting term planned in Year 3 and will be updating this page regularly to let you know what we have been learning.
Year 3 Homework
Reading – Reading is one of the most important life skills. At Elmhurst, we are committed to developing these skills by encouraging children to develop the love of reading. Therefore, we encourage parents to listen, read and share books as much as possible at home.
Spellings – All children have a weekly spelling test. Please help them practise the words set for them on Friday on Google classroom. In addition, below are a list of high frequency words for Year 3. These are words which occur most frequently in written material. It would be beneficial for you to practise these with your child, so that they can read them and spell them with ease.
Maths – Children will receive a Time Tables Rockstars account. This is an online resource to support your child to practise and become more fluent in their times tables. The expectation is that by the end of Year 3 children should know their 3,4 and 8 times tables as well as their 2,5 and 10 times tables that they have learnt in Year 2. Look out for regular updates on class battles. This is when classes compete with each other by playing as much as possible to win the battle!
"Good, better, best
Never let it rest;
Until good is better
And better is best."
