Each child will have a reading book which they are encouraged to read at home. There are a selection of book available at school along with a reading challenge list, a set of recommended reads suitable for children in Class 3. It is still important to listen to your child read, checking their understanding of vocabulary and inference and deduction skills. When you listen to your child read please record this in their home school diary as this gets recorded on the reading chart within the classroom.
Children will receive a piece of Maths and English homework every Tuesday. They should complete this and hand this in the following Tuesday. Both pieces of homework will be based on activities covered at some point in the class and therefore the children have knowledge of how to do these. Along with this children may receive a project based piece of homework over a longer period of time. All due dates for homework are indicated on the slip stuck in the children’s home school diaries.

The children have been given a home school diary. This is used to record any key messages and when your child has read their reading book to an adult or independently. If you would like to send in a little message into school it can be written in here, there is a space for parents to write. I will check these on a daily basis; it therefore needs to be in school everyday and I will sign them at the end of each week. I would be grateful if parents could do the same please.
The children should be organised and ready for each lesson. They should all be equipped with a pencil case which contains some key items; pencil, rubber, ruler and sharpener. They must have a book bag containing their reading book, home school diary, homework folder/book and letters. Each child should have a rucksack which is large enough to fit all of their things inside. Each child has a timetable and things to remember list stuck in their home school diaries.
