Reading Ideas for Year 3


Reading is an important part of all children's development. Here we are proving a list of books, which have previously been sent out to you. Please see below. 

What are common exception words?

Common exception words are words where the usual spelling rule doesn't apply. Some of these exception words are used frequently, so children are introduced to common exception words in different year groups. You will find below words lists for Year 1 and 2 and also Year 3 and 4. These are so you can see words they should be mostly confident in.


We have made these available for you to see, so you can share these with your children but also allow you to see what types of words children are being asked to know at each stage. The children should be able to read and spell them.
