Reading

In Yr 3, some children’s reading skills have been developed significantly enough for them to leave behind the reading scheme and begin the process of self selection of personal reading material. The children that still need the support and structure of a reading scheme will remain on the Oxford Reading Tree. Each child’s individual reading skills are monitored and extended during the Literacy Hour, and children will be bringing home a book chosen from the reading corner or a book from our banded reading scheme. As this selection is a learning process, children may occasionally bring unsuitable material home, e.g too difficult or easy. You can help this process by talking with your child about their choices and encouraging them to choose more appropriate material. The class teacher will also help children with this process. With these books will be a reading record. Children are asked to read regularly, at least 3 times a week and reading record to be returned with parents’ signature.

Homework

The children have a homework book into which they will write details of homework set. The amount of time they spend on the homework should not exceed 30 minutes. On nights where specific homework is not set, the children are expected to use the time for reading, revision of mental maths and times tables. The children will bring home spellings which will be reinforced during daily spelling sessions. Reinforcing these at home daily will increase confidence and help children to learn them thoroughly.

Parents

If you need to speak to the class teacher about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please do not hesitate to make an appointment after school.
