Reading at home
Reading is essential to support your child's learning and progress in school. The best way to do this is by working in partnership with parents and families. We therefore expect that children read at home every day, this is their homework and is the most important thing a child can do to ensure good progress.
Children's books will be changed every Friday and comments will be left in your child's reading record.
Spellings will be given out every Friday and are in the form of a handwriting worksheet. Children are expected to complete these and bring them back to school the following week before a test on Friday afternoon. If your child is given seperate spellings, these link with the levelled books that they are reading in school with an adult. Your children will be tested on these ones.
P.E will take place every Tuesday morning Children can come to school in comfy sport gear or their P.E kits. Throughout the year, children will still have access to our Forest School, and learning outdoors will be integrated into our class sessions.
In year 3, children learn their 3, 4 and 8 timestables. Fluency in their tables helps to support children's learning in other areas of Maths. Children have been given a Timestables Rockstars login in which is in the front of their reading record. You can log on at home and practice! We will also send home some timestable worksheets on a Friday for some extra practice!
