Year 3 English

Welcome to the Year 3 English Page. Throughout the year we will be developing our Reading and Writing skills through various different methods. We will be focusing on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar in order to develop our skills and alongside this we will use Power of Reading books as a focus for our lessons. We will also work on developing our comprehension skills using various different texts to do this.

Subordinate Clauses

Over the last few weeks we have been concentrating on Subordinate Clauses. We know that these are an extra clause in a sentence that provide more detail. We also know that subordinate clauses will not make sense on their own.

Today we focussed on adding subordinate clauses into the middle of sentences, providing extra detail on the subject. Here are some of our examples:

Emily, who was a small and cheerful girl, was on her way to school.

The man, who seemed mysterious, crept silently.

The train, which was late, sped past the station.

My coat, which was a present from my mum, is green.


Please continue to listen to your child read daily.

Share stories - bedtime stories are always fun!

Verbal stories and family histories help extend vocabulary as well as involving members of the wider family such as grandparents, aunts and uncles.

If you are reading a newspaper or online article involve your child. Children do not seem to be aware that adults are reading all the time too!


Spelling is very important and a big focus of the English curriculum. Below you will find a list of the Year 3 and 4 spellings that the children are expected to learn. 

In school we use the look, say, cover and write technique to help the children practice and learn the new spellings. This is soemthing that you can continue with at home.
