Year 3 reading book update


Your child will be coming home with a reading book tonight (17.9.20). This is based on an Accelerated Reader assessment they took this week. Please bare with us if you don't feel the book level is correct. It is based on their comprehension as well as their reading fluency. 


Homework for this week will be for the children to read their new reading books to an adult at home. 


Many Thanks 


Year 3 Team. 





Year 3 Autumn Term information for parents and carers 

PE days

Year 3 Monday and Wednesday

Children are to come into to school in their PE kits on their PE days. They may require a plain dark sweatshirt/hoodie and some sport tracksuit bottoms or leggings that are plain or as close to plain as you can get, to keep them warm during the day. Please no slogan jumpers or leggings, as an element of still being smart, although they are in PE kit, in school. No wearing tights with PE kits (unless running tights). No jewellery. They will be outside as much as possible. Thank you. 

We are excited about the year ahead and getting to know your children. The aim of the next few weeks is to settle the children into the new routines and to ensure that they are happy and comfortable in their new surroundings. We believe that if children are happy, they will be able to achieve their full potential. Please refer to this page for the latest news in Year 3.
