Reading at home
We cannot stress enough how important it is for your child to read at home! Reading is brilliant and we want to encourage children to do it as much as possible. We are going to be reading books together as a class but we would also like the children to read regularly at home. They will have a reading folder to take home and a reading log to record any reading they do. We would like them to read at least 5 times during the week – this can be anything that they are interested in reading, not just books, but useful information that they need, such as (appropriate) websites, television guides, menus, magazines… the list is endless! The reading logs will be checked regularly.
Homework is sent out each Wednesday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Each week a task is set linked to our learning for the forthcoming week. Each task will have a different focus and style of activity to keep the children’s learning interesting. We ask parents to support us with reading with their child every week and completing spelling and times tables tasks sent out.
Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on these days.
PE kit consists of: a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black PE pumps. Children may wear black jogging pants and a jumper in the colder months if they go outside. Due to the limited space we have in the cloakroom in our classroom, please can children refrain from bringing in large rucksacks/handbags. They are too big for the pegs and children cannot hang their coats up properly. Instead, we encourage them to bring the blue school reading book bags to put their belongings in. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
Water bottles & snacks
Don’t forget to bring water bottles in each day - it is important for the children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please put a label on bottles and refill them every day.
Children can purchase milk cartons at the beginning of each half term (see the school office) and bring a healthy snack for break time.
We would like to remind you the importance of pupils regularly using Times Tables Rockstars, and practicing their times tables. Fluency in this area can often help children with many other areas of Maths.
Please see the section below for home learning packs and ideas at home. Remote lessons will begin on Wednesday, 23rd September every day at 9:30 and 11am whilst the Year 3 bubble is closed. Please check your text messages and emails for the links.
