Happy New Year Kestrels!
Take a look at our Medium term plan to find out what we will be learning about over the next few weeks.
This year all spelling practice will happen in school. However, if you would like to practice some spellings at home, then in your child’s reading diary, (near the middle), there are a few pages that show the key words that all year 3 children need to know how to spell.
We have a new reading system this year throughout KS2 where children are encouraged to choose a book that they would like to read for pleasure. This means that your child will not be limited to a colour or book band. A few of the Kestrels were very excited by the thought of this, as you may have noticed… ! 🙂 We will be guiding them to choose books that are suitable and appropriate for them over the next few weeks!
As well as reading 3 times a week, it is extremely important that your child is fluent in their times tables (2, 5, 10, 3, 4, & 8s) by the end of Year 3, as they are vital for quick mental maths calculations and problem solving. Children are tested regularly on their timetables knowledge and will get to colour in a square on their chart when they are secure.
If you would like anymore information then please do not hesitate to ask.
