Reading with your child:
Please can you listen to your child read as often as possible. The children have a reading record for you to record the date and title of book and any comments you wish to make. Please continue to sign your child’s reading map challenge at the back of their reading diary.
Some children in Year 3 may be reaching the end of our colour banded scheme to become ‘free readers.’ This means that they have demonstrated a good level of competence in both decoding and comprehension and are now able to choose from a wider selection of non-scheme books, which are often longer and more complex.
We have put together a suggested list of fiction books as a guide.
PE sessions will take place on Wednesdays with Mr. Hughes Coaching Team. Your child needs to bring pumps or trainers and a t-shirt, shorts and tracksuit in order to participate. Please can all items be labelled and P.E kits be in school at the beginning of each week.
If your child wears earrings please can they be removed on these days or have tape to cover them up. If your child cannot take part in P.E please let us know.
Please bring a named drinks bottle or cup so that your child can have water to drink throughout the day
During break time, Year 2 are provided with a healthy snack for break and Year 3 may brink a healthy snack; they may also bring 20p to buy tuck from the office during the break period. All children may bring a healthy snack for the short afternoon break as well.
Children will be given homework each week to help practise what we have been doing together in class. This will include spellings and 30 minutes on MathsWhizz.
Spelling and Phonics
The Year 2 children in the class will have 3 phonics sessions per week to continue developing their phonetic knowledge and understanding. All children will continue to have spelling input to help develop their understanding.
If you have any resources e.g. books, DVDs, photos or personal experiences which would link to the topics and benefit the children, we’d love to hear from you. Also, you would be most welcome to come in and help, regularly or occasionally!
