Welcome to Year 3
We would like to tell you all about Year 3 and the exciting things we do. This year we will be using Parenthub to update you and keep everyone informed of the exciting things Year 3 have been doing. Parenthub will be launched after half term so for the time being we will be using twitter and the monthly newsletter to share our learning.

We encourage Year 4 to go on Times Tables Rockstars and EducationCity every week to support their learning at home. Your child's login should be in the front of their reading records.
We put great emphasis on learning rules of spelling and using the correct vocabulary to discuss them so we encourage children to discuss this with families when learning their spellings.
KEY VOCAB: phonemes (sounds) graphemes (the letters that make sounds), consonants, vowels, root words, prefixes, suffixes, short vowel sounds ('e' in get), long vowel sounds ('i' in find or 'ai' in rain).
You can find copies of the children's spellings below.
Week 1 13.9.19 - Vowel suffix ‘ed’
Week 2 20.9.19 - Vowel suffix ‘ing’
