HOME LEARNING

Year 3 children will receive four set home learning activities a week. Each one feeds directly into basic skills that they have been developing in school.

1. Spellings (10 statutory words to learn each week)

2. Maths- Timestables Rock Stars or Numbots

3. Reading (Daily reading for pleasure. 3 times with an adult)

We all know it is very important that the children are reading at home as much as possible. The children are rewarded as 'Reading Champions' if they read at home at least 3 times each week. 

Each Friday we will send a new sheet home in the children's home learning books. These books should be handed back in every Thursday ready for marking from school adults.

 

OUTDOOR AREA

We are continuing to develop an outside area for the children to use for their learning in Year 1 and 2. If you would like to, please send into school some old trainers or wellies which the children can wear when outside. These will need to be in a named carrier bag so they can be left on the child's peg.

If you have any questions about our learning this term (or anything else) please come and see us.
