Year Three Notice Board

 

Notices

Welcome back after the Summer holidays. The children are settling in well and we are all looking forward to the year ahead. 

We have sent home the children's Reading Record books and have asked that these come into school everyday with their reading books as well. We will check the Reading Record books every Monday but children can change their reading book at any point during the week. We are really encouraging them to take ownership with this and have discussed the importance of reading everyday. 

 

Swimming starts on Tuesday 19th September. Each child will need to bring a separate bag with a towel, costume and swimming cap. The children may also bring goggles if you wish.

Our other PE lesson during the week is on a Monday. Please make sure children have a full Belmont PE kit including plimsolls or trainers. As the weather gets colder, children will need long jogging bottoms.

Home Learning

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 15 - 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension.  Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.
