Sitting the NAPLAN in Year 3

Year 3 is a big year for many primary school students! It’s the first time they’ll be sitting the NAPLAN, which can feel like a pretty big deal. 

If you’re feeling a little worried for your child, we’ve got plenty of info to share so that you know exactly what your child will be doing once they sit these assessments.

Firstly, these assessments will be based on:

  • Reading & Writing
  • Language Conventions
  • Numeracy

To learn more about how the assessments work, check out our guide here!

Spelling obviously plays a role in your child’s ability to read and write, but in the NAPLAN, it is specifically assessed within the Language Conventions test — with a section focussed on spelling.

Your child will need to identify and correct errors in simple words — types of words include frequently used one-syllable words and two-syllable words with regular spelling patterns.

Our worksheets will give your child plenty of practice with identifying and correcting any mistakes, as they’ll need to write and check how they’ve spelt words as they complete them!
