Below you can find a full sample of the year 3 spelling overview covering the expected spellings to be known by this stage, some examples of words meeting those spelling criteria and cross references back to the ‘Support for Spelling’ book issued with the previous national curriculum. If there are no cross-references given then that spelling item was not a focus in the previous national curriculum.
Schools purchasing a ‘Year unit’ will get the Spelling Overview for that year included with the units of work. The Complete Spelling Overview can be purchased separately as well.
