Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 is the first year in Key Stage 2. It is a big jump from KS1 to KS2 and many children take a little while to adjust. In Year 3, our focus is on developing the children’s learning skills, such as greater independence, reading for yourself, writing longer texts and learning their times tables.
Reading in year 3
Children read daily – either independently in pairs or as a group/whole class. Parent helpers are valued and welcomed to listen to readers. Please remind your child to change their books regularly and please listen to them read at home and encourage them to make comments in their reading logs and to review their reading.
We expect children to become more independent in their reading and to broaden their reading experience. Now they are readers you could visit the local library to help your child find books that interest and stimulate them.
