Year 3

Dear Parents / Carers,


Children need to bring their yellow Reading Journals with them every day and it is really important to read daily with your child, building on their reading stamina and fluency.  When you hear your child read, please check their understanding by asking questions, such as What has happened? Why events happened?  How the characters felt and why they felt that way?  Can they predict what might happen next?  Why did the author use those specific words?  Can you find the evidence in the book to explain your answer?   It is key that your child shows awareness of punctuation when they are reading, including speech.


This term, pupils will need to come into school wearing their PE kits on Tuesdays and Fridays. No ear-rings to be worn for health and safety reasons, if your child has recently had their ears pierced please tape them.  PE kits should be navy, grey or black joggers/shorts and hoodie, white tops.


Please can we remind you, that all drink bottles, jumpers, coats, hats, gloves, etc. need to be labelled.  As the weather gets warmer, it is advised that children have sun-cream applied before school (they can self-apply more at lunch) and wear sun hats.


Remember school trip to Dovedale is on Thursday 8th June early start of 7:15am and late return of 4pm.


Show and Tell Wednesday 7th June - where children can share items and events from half term.


Have an amazing week,

Miss Campbell & Mr Bhojani
