Thank you for your support.
Home Learning in Year 3
Reading takes priority over all home learning. We expect the children to read aloud to you on a daily basis for 10-15 minutes to:
* develop their fluency
* give you the opportunity to explain the meaning of new words
* to check their understanding by asking them questions.
We strongly recommend that you read to your child as much as possible preferably a more challenging book that they would not necessarily choose or be able to read themselves to. When your child completes a book, they will take a Quiz on our Accelerated Reader platform in school to test their knowledge and understanding of what they have read.  They can use the website to read books online - these books are linked to their Book Level (ZPD).
During the term, the children will have the opportunity to become a Reading Champion.  They will  be awarded a certificate for every set amount of books they read!
We will continue to introduce a new spelling rule is every Monday in school and practice it throughout the week. This term, we will be setting all spellings through Spelling Shed as well as sending a sheet for further practise.
Children can also use TT Rockstars and My Maths to consolidate their mathematical understanding further.
