We have really enjoyed our first two days in school. The children have come in so happily and really settled down well!
Beginning and End of the Day
Please come to the class door during your time slot and your class teacher will greet you in the morning and see you out at the end of the afternoon.
Please bring a bag to keep your lunch and morning snack in and water bottle in. It would be helpful to always have a coat because we will be outside at times during the day, even when the weather is a bit damp!
First full week
You will receive a new reading book using the Accelerated Reader scheme (see details below).
On Monday a spelling folder will come home, complete with instructions about the routine. Likewise on Friday a times table practice sheet will be given out with instructions attached. Please ask if you have any questions.
To help with organising your bag. this half term's timetable:
PE on Friday afternoon
Forest School on Thursday morning
PE on Tuesday and Thursday mornings
There will be lots more information about Year 3 in due course!
Please feel free to contact us if you need to get a message to us and haven't be able to catch us face to face.
Our email addresses for next year are:
With Best Wishes,
Mrs Adlam, Mrs Gregory and Mrs Steed
Spellings will be tested on a Monday and new spellings will be sent home on the same day. Please ensure that your child remembers to bring in their folder.
Times tables will be tested on a Wednesday and new times tables will be sent home on a Friday.
If you have any questions, please ask!
Over the next week, the children will be assessed on their reading using Accelerated Reader. The children will complete a Star test, where they have to read various questions and choose the correct answer. This allows us to to see where the children are with their reading and comprehension skills.
The assessment shows us a zone of proximal development of where the children are currently at. For example; 1.6 - 2.6. You may find that the children bring home books that might seem a little easy for them but we have to start the children at the lowest end of the zone. Once your child has read their book, they will be able to take a quiz in school which will then assess their reading and understanding of what they have read. If the children score 90% or more, they will move to the next level. The children will get a chance to quiz every day so you will find that the children move up levels quite quickly.
If you have any queries about this then please don't hesitate to contact us.
