Children in Class 3 are expected to have a higher level of independence and take greater responsibility for their learning. Children are encouraged to be well prepared and organized during lessons. High standards of work are expected at all times, including work completed at home. All pupils are encouraged to work their very hardest and contribute fully to class life. They are expected to be well behaved, polite and helpful at all times and follow our `Golden Rules’. Members of Class 3 should be smart and wear school uniform at all times. Please note that trainers are only allowed for outdoor games.
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 English and guided reading. Children will bring 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 and TA will also help children with this process. With these books will be a reading record which we ask parents to comment in.
All homework will be set on a Monday on Teams and needs to be completed by the following Monday.
Reading- Children will be asked to read daily at home and for this to be noted in their school reading diary. Books are to be placed in the class box once they are finished where it will be quarantined for 72 hours.
Maths- Maths tasks will be set on Teams. These will vary between MyMaths or a choice of differentiated tasks.
English- A reading comprehension or GPS task will be uploaded onto Teams.
Spellings- Children will be set weekly spellings appropriate to the stage of development they are at. These will be uploaded to Teams.
Timestables- Please continue to practise times tables. This could be done using platforms such as Times Table Rock Stars.
If you need to speak to the class teacher about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please do not hesitate to contact the office to arrange a telephone appointment.
