Year 3 Routines
Reading – In Year 3, the children read every week with an adult during group reading. Children bring their independent reading books everyday as we like to read at every opportunity. Everyone has a reading record where adults and children can comment on what has been read each time they read. Every child is encouraged to read daily to enhance their fluency and comprehension. Once they finish a book, the children need to ask a parent to sign their reading diary. Every time they read they will receive a raffle ticket and their name is put into the prize draw for the chance to collect a small prize each Friday.
Spellings – Spellings are given out on a Wednesday and are tested on the following Monday. The children are expected to practice their spellings at home.
Homework – Homework books are sent home on a Wednesdays too, to be returned the following Monday this is to ensure there is enough time to mark homework and give children appropriate feedback and support where necessary. Any homework not completed will be done in break time. Homework is a mixture of Topic, Maths and English.
PE – PE is on Tuesday and Friday.
Staffing – In Year 3 we work with our Teaching Assistants, Miss Arundel (Monday -Friday mornings and Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons), Mrs Grayson ( Mondays – Friday) and Mrs Clover (Monday – Friday afternoons).
