A Level Up Study - Year 3 English Curriculum Guide for the Parents and Teachers

English is regarded as the common language of the world. After the mother tongue, this language is given priority as this becomes a mutual language for communication with everyone around the globe. 

In the Year 3 English Curriculum, your kids or students should have the ability to read and write quickly. In that context, the Year 3 English Curriculum is a level up for those kids. Thus without further ado, let us serve this guiding material for you. 

Pre-Conditions to Consider Before you Start With Year 3 English Curriculum

Before starting off with the guidance of Year 3 English Curriculum, we are required to make sure that the students or kids are well versed in: 

  1. Reading correctly and accurately. They must be quick enough to understand what they read. This means they must not only concentrate on a specific word rather concentrate on the context. 

  2. They have an understanding of the words used outside their normal vocabulary. They at least can guess their meaning. 

Main Aim for the Teachers and Parents

Children Talking in English without Any Communication Hindrance

The main aim for the teachers and parents is to make their students and children excel in the language of English without any difficulty conversing with this language. Prior to this motive, we have designed our guiding draft which is dedicated to those concerned parents and teachers. Similarly, the main aim is to:

  • To make them independent, fluent, and enthusiastic readers who themselves will read fluently. 

  • The kids should be able to understand and enjoy the stories and the poetries. They should be able to understand the plays and brief them with their own English language. 

  • The child should be able to write in unique strands of writing - imaginative writing, simple story writing, correct usage of grammar, and the use of punctuations as well. 

A Guiding Draft for the Teachers and Parents

In this section, we will be representing the guiding draft. This draft is to be used by the teachers and the parents for the development of the students and kids in the year 3 English Curriculum.

1. Reading

During this time, the kids should study a wide range of books so that they can explore new vocabularies each day. Students should spend time in knowing the meanings of the new words which they come through in those books. Understanding comes after this. While they read, they must also understand the context. This reading will also help them in  comprehending the lesson leading to ‘Reading Comprehension’. 

Mastering the Skills of Reading Comprehension

You can help your kid in mastering their comprehension reading skills with the following tips:

  • Encourage your kids to listen to stories, especially fictional stories in order to develop their interest. They must also listen to the poetries, plays and even non-fiction books. 

  • Reading a variety of books.

  • Keep a pocket dictionary, so that whenever they come across a difficult word they can resort to that dictionary. 

  • They must know about the famous books and the famous writers as well. 

  • They must ask questions to improve their own understanding. 

  • They should be able to draw conclusions of the acts done by the characters of the story with evidence. 

  • Summarising the whole content

2. Writing 

Writing will be efficient once they are well knowledgeable about the words. They must know the usage of prefixes and suffixes and the way they are to be added. They are advised to spell the spellings of those words which are often misspelt. Dictation practices can be done by the teachers, this will help them in writing lucidly. 

3. Handwriting and Format

They must understand that the first requirement of a good handwriting is to write it neatly. They will learn how to join each letter, and which letter should be left unjoined. Everyday they must improve their handwriting, this can be done by practising on a handwriting book. 

4. Grammar Check 

As we know, Grammar is an important aspect of the English language. Thus, this should not be ignored. Make the students practise grammar everyday. This includes correct usage of punctuation marks etc. 

These are a few of the suggestions which are being drafted in this guidance sheet. The content was basically a guide or suggestion content. Teachers or parents should not rely on this guidance completely rather use them as only a guide.
