Miss North's Reading Group



Your spellings to learn this week are (test Monday 11th May):


Try and spend some time every day going over your spellings, in preparation for your test.


I would also like you to complete the activity on Classroom Secrets Kids called Year 3 There, Their or They’re Game. Practise selecting the correct homophone in this There, Their or They’re Game. What other homophones can you think of?


There is also a game to match words that have similar meanings together (synonyms). Can you pair the words together?





As this Friday is VE day, I have chosen a reading comprehension which explains what VE day is and why we celebrate it.
