Spelling Log Books

During their spelling lessons, children will write words that they need to learn each week in their Spelling Log Book, which they will bring home with them. Parents are asked to help them learn these words and test them at home. Children will test each other in school, and teachers will be checking to see if they spell these words correctly in their writing.

Words you should know at the start of Year 3

These are words that are used frequently in our writing and that children in Year 3 commonly misspell. As well as practising the words in your blue and white Log book it is expected that children also practise these words so they can spell them confidently in their independent writing.

Words you should know by the end of Year 4

The National Curriculum expects children to be able to spell all of these words by the end of Year 4. Don't try to learn them all at once: check off the ones you can already do, and choose a few at a time to learn and practise at home.

Common Exception words - year 3 and 4


The expectation is that children will have learnt their 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables by the end of Year 2. We will start recapping these in Year 3 during Term 2, when we will also begin to introduce the 3s and 4s.

You can practise at home by working through the Tables Whizz sheets. See if you can beat your previous best time, and get all the right answers.
