Year 3 Routines

Reading In Year 3, the children read every week with an adult during group reading. Children bring their independent reading books everyday as we like to read at every opportunity. Everyone has a reading record where adults and children can comment on what has been read each time they read. Every child is encouraged to read daily to enhance their fluency and comprehension. Once they finish a book, the children need to ask a parent to sign their reading diary.

Spellings – Spellings are given out on a Monday and are tested on the Friday. The children are expected to practice their spellings at home.

Homework – Homework books are sent home on a Wednesdays. The weeks homework is to be returned by the following Monday this is to ensure there is enough time for children to complete their tasks. Homework is a mixture of Topic, Maths and English.



PE – PE is on Thursday

Staffing – In Year 3 we work with our Teaching Assistant Mrs Dumpleton.

The BFG by Dahl, Roald (ebook) 

Sophie, an orphan, is taken away by a giant named BFG (Big Friendly Giant) as she sees him in the witching hour (a time when everyone is sleeping and giants show up). He takes her away because he is afraid that she will tell everyone and he will be in danger. BFG is a good giant. But his fellows aren’t.



Curriculum English | Ravenshall School

We have started our new Power of Reading book. There is a man made of iron, who is the size of a house and has a head the size of a bedroom. We decided to imagine the size of his head. The children used chalk to show the size of a bedroom. 



We have had a great start to this terms topic. We have created a disaster relief centre and the children have made fantastic volcano models at home, which we have exploded!!
