Our Assessment Books for P3

During the holiday and for the coming year P4, I’m cutting down on the assessment books we are using and focusing more on information-finding through the internet, lap-booking, building up vocabulary for both languages and writing journals/diaries.

Someone asked in a previous post comment, what were the assessment books we used for Primary 3. I decided to compile it out for anyone who is interested to supplement learning for their child. 

For Weekly Revision throughout the year, we did the most for English Comprehension and Chinese Words Revision and Writing. For Science and Maths, we did minimal. I took one weekday to do a few Science revision exercises while for Maths, we focused on problem-solving maths word problem questions.

The following books were the most useful to us for the entire P3 school year:



  • EPH – I’m the Best in Composition Writing 3 
  • Casco- Phases for Sensational Writing 3

Supplementary Learning: 

Writing Revision: Term 1: English Journal Prompts Writing


  • Casco- How to Score English 3 (Doing this for P4 too for before exam practice)
  • FBP – Excel in English with Critical Thinking 3

Vocab and Cloze:

  • SAP – Conquer Cloze 3 (did this for June Holidays and finished it)
  • SAP – Conquer Vocabulary 3 (only did a few exercises) (Will be doing P5 level for P4)
