It's that time of year again when Warstones competes against local primary schools in the 'Annual Performance Poetry Competition'. Warstones have done really well in previous years and we're hoping this year will be no exception!
All Year 3 children are encouraged to learn a poem of their choice to recite. Funny poems with actions have always gone down well with the judges! Pre heats will be held in class during week commencing Monday 23rd September. One winner will be chosen to represent Year 3 in the 'Annual Performance Competition' at Castlecroft Primary School on Monday 30th September.
The overall Year 3 competition winner will recieve a £10 gift voucher!!!

Here are copies of the word lists we teach in Year 3. Any support you can give your child in reading and spelling these words will be greatly appreciated and will really help your child on their journey to becoming a great reader and writer!
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask.
We have decided to give you all the HALF TERMLY spellings lists this year to try and make life easier for you! Remember to check which group you are in.
Put the list in a visible place - a fridge is ideal - and learn your spellings weekly. Tests will take place every Friday. We'll let you know if ten out of ten is achieved!
Year 2 common exception words can also be found on the back!!
