Key information for Parents

READING 

Reading books are to be taken home every night and brought back into school every day.  Please complete you Accelerated Reader quizzes online at home if you can by following this link:

Your username and password are the same as your Mathletics.  If you can't access this at home, please let me know.

We will try to change books as regularly as possible in school, but please be patient as we are not allowing children access to the library at the moment. If you forget your book or are reading other books alongside your school reading book, you can search for it in accelerated reader to find if there is a comprehension test for it.

Further to this, I have added a new Online Reading tab where you can access reading materials from home. Many of these books can be found on the accelerated reader tests to assess your understanding of the content.

Homework

In year 3, our homework is given out each Friday and is due in by Thursday. We give out a list of ten spellings each week which you will be tested on the following Thursday. Along with the spelling homework, you will recieve up to 3 activities to complete on Mathletics or completion of tasks on our new homework app Century by the following Friday morning. Prizes are given using raffle tickets for children who complete their homework and those who achieve well on their spellings.

PE

P.E. days are Monday and Wednesday. Kits can now be stored in school and will be sent home each half term as we used to do.
