Year 3 Recommended Reading List

Giving children access to all varieties of literature is extremely important for their success. Reading is a key life skill which is crucial to developing language skills and access to the wider curriculum. It provides children with the chance to respond and develop personal opinions encouraging deeper thoughts and their imagination.  Our aim is to develop a love and passion for reading both at home and school.  We have specially selected high quality reading books for each year group.  Some of these books can be found in the classroom and some are available for loan at Lees library. Encourage your child to read as many of these books as possible throughout the year.

Please select the document below to see the books we recommend.

Home Learning

Homework

Year 3’s weekly homework is incorporated into the nine sections of the Homework Grid. The Homework Grid needs to be completed each week and signed by an adult.

I will check and sign the previous week of the Homework Grid on your child’s designated day which is found at the front of the planner.

Reading

The children are expected to read to an adult at least three times a week, if not daily. Please note in the planner every time you read with your child.

Spellings

These will be sent home each Friday and tested the following week. It is important for each child to have a practise of their spellings at home, which is part of their Homework Grid.
