Autumn 1st Half Term Connected Curriculum - Greece - Past and Present

Reading Books

Reading books at home is a part of your child's homework and is valuable to their progression.  Please can reading books be brought to school everyday.  We will endeavor to change your child's books once a week but will take every opportunity to hear them read.  We would really appreciate it if you could support you child by listening to them read at home a few times a week.  Please jot a few notes in your child's reading record book telling us how much they have read, whether they enjoyed the story and if they struggled to sound out or remember tricky words.  To support your child you could ask them a few questions (such as what will happen next, why an event happened or how a character feels) throughout the book to encourage comprehension.  

Library days are:

Class 5 - Monday 12 o'clock

Class 6 - Tuesday 12 o'clock

Please remember to return your library book as you will not be able to borrow another one.

Homework

Homework will be given out most Fridays.  This will include spelling, reading and numeracy.  Please complete your homework in your homework books and return to the appropriate teacher by Wednesday. Spelling tests will usually take place on a Friday and are available to practise interactively here.  

P.E.

P.E. for Year 3 is on a Monday afternoon with Stoke City Community Coaches.  Our P.E. kit consists of a red t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps although outdoor kit is also allowed in the winter.  Please ensure all kit is named and placed in a named bag.  All kit will be sent home at the end of every half term.  

Violins

We are very fortunate in Year 3 to have Mrs Omar and the chance for every child to borrow a violin for the year.  Please take special care of yours and remember to use the rosin on your bow.  Here is a guide on how to look after your violin.
