Expectations

 

PE -  Currently on a Wednesday, children must arrive to school wearing their FULL KITS: plain black shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms and a plain white t-shirt. No jewellery allowed for health and safety reasons.

 

Homework: A homework grid will be placed on the website with suggested home learning activities.

 

Reading: Reading records and books will be issued soon. Please check back for updates.

 

Daily reading is an essential to aid your child's development in all curriculum areas.

 

Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.

Reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.

 

What difference can YOU make as a parent?

You can make a huge difference! Parents are the most important educators in a child’s life – even more important than their teachers – and it’s never too early or too late to start reading together.

Year 3 Reading

Example of reading skills that should be developed in Year 3. This video shows the responses from group of children who have read extracts from texts. The children are encouraged to summarise the story based on what they have read so far, draw their own inference based on what they have said i.e. suggesting a motive to a characters actions/behaviour or suggesting how they might be feeling, give justification for their views based on their knowledge of the text or even their knowledge of the outside world to support there justifications and begin to make predictions using their prior knowledge of the text.

This video also gives an example of the appropriate reading speed at Year 3 level - the emphasis is on speed of word recognition for understanding rather than decoding (using phonics) words being read.
