We will continue with our prehistoric topic and will learn about the Stone and Iron Age for this half term. Should you have to learn from home, please login to Showbie for your learning tasks. In addition, there are links below that you can access to support your learning.

Reading Books
Please encourage your child to read their reading book at home and also  write a comment in their Home School  Link book. We recommend hearing your child read in Year Three for a minimum of 3 times a week for at least 10 minutes. Books will be changed when children have comments in their book and confidently read the book as well as answer questions about it. 

Reading is so much more than being able to say the text. 

Some tips to help your child with reading

  1. Ask them to reread a page, so that they internalise the text and can summarise what they have read. 
  2. Encourage your child to reread after blending or being told, so that they sound like a story teller or a narrator.
  3. Help your child develop their vocabulary by asking what words mean or to find a word that means your word or phrase.
  4. Encourage your child to read to punctuation. At each full stop, pause and take a breath. This is the same for commas and questions marks. Exclamation marks, should show some change in how things are said depending on the emotion that is felt by the character.
  5. Discuss the features of a non fiction pages and books.
