Reading

We read a wide range of texts in Year 3 and love to read in class. Reading is hugely important to our children. Children can change their reading books daily in 3 Maple. Please ensure these are signed at home by a parent or carer. Please encourage your child to read at home regularly. Every 5 times read = a raffle ticket! 

The children are responsible for choosing their own book from our book boxes.

We read daily in class together through whole class reading and have regular times to read independently using our reading corner.

 

Homework

Homework is set on a Friday. This will cover an element we have been learning during the week with either a maths or English focus. Homework is handed back in to mark together the following Friday. Alongside this children are encouraged to use Mathletics and Ed Shed children earn points for their class by completing tasks that are set weekly. Log ins will be the same as previous years and will be stuck in their reading record books.

 

Spellings

Spellings are set on Ed Shed on a weekly basis. We also send home spelling books for written practice at home. Children will be tested weekly on these in class. This half term spellings will be carried out on a Friday. We would encourage children to use Ed Shed/ green spelling books 5x per week. 

 

PE

3 Maple have PE on a Monday and Tuesday. We also have fit-beat on Wednesdays which requires PE kit. The children should bring their PE kit in a bag and will get changed for PE at school on these days..

 

Thank you for your on-going support. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us should you need to.
