In year 3 we will continue to revisit the phonics learning which took place in KS1 and start to learn more complex graphemes (letters) that represent the sounds. We will be starting this straight away. New lists will be sent home on a Monday and tested on the Friday of the second week The lists will only have some of the words for the sound we are learning, but we will learn lots more in class for the sound being taught that week. Lists can be found by clicking the spelling icon below.
These list is from the National Curriculum and the expectation is that all children will be able to read and spell these words and use them in their writing. Some of these words are decodable and others will be 'tricky' words which cannot be sounded out and just need to be learnt.
Year 3 & 4 word list:
If your child has to isolate at home, there will be work on this page so that they don't miss too much. We are not going to overload the children as they might be quite poorly. These tasks will supplement what we are doing in class as we cannot expect you to complete the learning in class without the teacher's input.
Remember to use TTRockstars, Spelling Shed, Oxford Reading Buddy and read as much as you can.
As of October 2021,we have begun to use 'Cornerstones' curriculum throughout the school so that we can ensure a solid progressions of skills and knowledge acquisition in the foundation subjects,and Science and English particularly.
What is the Cornerstones Curriculum?
The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the 2014 primary national curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. It is based on a child-centred pedagogy called The Four Cornerstones and is delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) and Knowledge Rich Projects (KRPs), which provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of children’s learning. We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum provides many learning challenges throughout the academic year that require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively. Cornerstones also provide a rigorous skills and knowledge framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects. These skills and knowledge are tied to activities and are age-related .
