Year 3 Spelling List


As spelling is an important part of writing, the children practise a different group of spellings each week. These are sent home as homework and we work on them during school time too. The children will be quizzed on their weekly spellings each Friday. The weekly spellings for Autumn 1 can be seen below.

Times Tables


In Year 3 our target is to be fluent in recalling our 3, 4 and 8 times tables, as well as the 2, 5, and 10's that we learnt in Year 2. We use lots of different strategies to help us calculate them.  A great game to help with times tables fluency is 'Hit the Button'. Why not have a go here:
