Writing in Year 3

Below are some example of writing in year 3. These samples show what we would expect a year 3 child's writing to be like in the spring term. 

To meet expected level children need to be using punctuation consistently, be spelling most of their words correctly and have neat handwriting. Children also need to demonstrate that they can use a range of skills in their writing such as expanded noun phrases, commas in a list, possessive apostrophes and fronted adverbials.

Please see below some good examples of the children's story endings and newspaper reports from the autumn term last year. These examples have been selected to give an indication of what writing should look like in year 3.

House Teams TT Rockstars Battle
30/06/2022 12:00 AM

Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been using TT Rockstars this year to learn and practice their times tables. They were excited to organise a TT Rockstars House Team battle before the end of the term, so we have arranged this for next week. From 9.00am Monday morning next week, until 3.00pm on Thursday, the children can collect points for their house teams by playing on TT Rockstars. The team with the most points will have an extra break on Friday afternoon to celebrate. 

The children will have access at school to play TT Rockstars at various points during the day next week, but they may also collect points by playing at home too. The competition will be open each day between the house of 7.30am and 7.30pm, once the competition starts on Monday, so please feel free to encourage your child to have a go at home too. 

We will let you know how we get on, and good luck to all the house teams!

World Maths Day
