Reading at home
All children are given their own reading record and book to bring home every night. It is the expectation in Year 3 that all children read to an adult every night and their reading record is signed and returned to school the following day. These are checked daily by teachers and rewards are given for children who read 5x a week or more!
Reading opens so many opportunities for children and has astonishing benefits, including increasing confidence, relaxation, happiness, imagination and of course it is fun!
Spelling homework will be sent home every Friday and all children will complete a spelling quiz on these words the following Friday. The words that the children bring home for spellings are common exception words all children are expected to know in Year 3 and 4. Being able to spell these words correctly will improve the quality of children's writing too so it is extremely important to practise these words at home.
There will also be a reading comprehension task sent home weekly to help children understand what they are reading. This can be supported if necessary but we encourage children to complete this task independently. This task can also be used as a weekly reading record entry.
This half term Year 3 have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Children must bring their full PE kits into school with them on these days. Children must wear black/navy joggers/leggings/shorts and a white polo top. A navy or black jacket can be worn for when PE is outside during the colder months. All PE kit must be plain with NO LOGOS!
Water bottles & snacks
All children can bring a water bottle into school and leave this at the sink throughout the day. No juice is allowed - water only
