Words of the Week – we are introducing our children to new vocabulary every week. These words will be sent home on a weekly basis. Please ask your child what they mean and encourage them to use them as often as possible during conversations and give lots of praise when they use them correctly.
Due to current restrictions, stage reading books will only be sent home once a week, on a Friday. Your child is able to bring home a class library book as often as required throughout the week. We have a wide variety of books to choose from, including- fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
All children in Year 3 have online access to either Reading Plus or Lexia, both are excellent online resources that have a wealth of literature for your child to read at their level. This will support their reading accuracy, speed and comprehension skills. Please encourage your child to access this at least three times per week.
We love to read in our school and believe,
‘The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go’
That is the way the mind grows
Not with a test, but a tale…
