Spelling

Below, is the full list of spellings that your child needs to know by the end of year 3. They will be learning them in school as well as being tested on them randomly. If you can find the time to help your child learn them, it would be much appreciated.

 

Spelling Bee Year 3

Aim: All year 3 children are to learn the meaning and spellings of the Y3 and Y4 word list from now until the end of the summer term.

Structure: Across the next seven weeks of the summer term the pupils are to learn (in school and at home) the spellings from the list below. There will be 16 spellings given out each week. These will need to be tested each week.

The children should be able to explain what each word means; providing definitions, recognising the root words (where applicable), creating word families (where applicable) and being able to produce Y3 standard sentences containing each of the words.

We will be giving this work a high profile within the classroom by offering rewards, using classroom display space and putting the information on the class page on the internet. During the end of the seventh week, commencing on 17th July, all the children will be tested in writing on all of the spellings. The top 10 in each class will go forward to a Year competition at the beginning of the week commencing 24th July. This is an exciting way for the children to keep learning and understanding the words they need to be using in all of their work.

Thanking you for your support Mrs Plackett & Mr Pugh
