CLASS 3

As the children enter class 3, we continue to encourage them to develop their independence and resilience. The children will meet many new aspects of the curriculum for the first time, which may seem daunting at first. But with a 'have a go' attitude, they will soon develop the confidence and skills required. Please pop in and see us if you would like to know more about an area your child has been studying.

 

Reading

This continues to be crucial, even for children who are now confident at reading aloud. In Year 3, we focus particularly on understanding the texts that we read and identifying the meaning of new vocabulary. We would be grateful if you would hear your child read at least 5 times a week and sign their reading diary. We appreciate your support in hearing your child read - it really does make a difference!

The children are responsible for changing their own reading book, which can be done at the start of the day. They are also responsible for taking their reading book home every day, although we will remind them!

Homework

Homework is sent out twice weekly. Mrs Richardson’s homework is sent out on a Monday and due in for a Monday. This is usually maths but occasionally, it will be a project relating to our topic. Mrs Little’s times tables homework is given out on a Friday and is due in on a Friday.
