Dear Year 3 Parents and Carers,

 In the event of a school closure we would like to remind you of all the exciting Home Learning your child could be doing.

  •  LEXIA ((login details were sent home recently)
  • Purple Mash (login details in your child's reading record book)
  • TT Rockstars (login details in your child's reading record book)
  • Practise reading and spelling common exception words ( which you can find in the back of your child's reading record book)

Reading and sharing a book with your child .

The children will be learning about healthy living over the next few weeks.

A little booklet will be coming home today, Friday 10.01.2020, and  I have asked the children to record the following information daily:

  1. How many portions of fruit and vegetables they have eaten each day.
  2. How they travel to school.
  3. How much exercise they have had each day.
  4. If they have brushed their teeth twice a day.
  5. If they washed their hands before eating.

It would be great if they children could bring this booklet – filled in each day – back to school every day.

Home Learning Words have come home in your child's Reading Record Book.

Please have a look at the last page.

You will find the words and the colour code underneath it

e.g 24.9.19 Green or 24.9.19 Blue etc....

Please practise with your child the words from your child's individual colour category only.

Children will be tested every 2 weeks on these words and will either move one colour word group up or stay on the same for a bit longer.

Every 2 weeks we will update the Reading Record Books, so you can follow your child's progress.
