Welcome to Year Three’s Class Page
Moving into the Juniors is a very exciting time, full of lots of new experiences and challenges. If you feel a little nervous, don’t worry because I will help you settle in. In September, all you will need to bring with you is your coat, PE kit and a water bottle. We have everything else that you will need at school.

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
- Ask them to reread a page, so that they internalise the text and can summarise what they have read.
- Encourage your child to reread after blending or being told, so that they sound like a story teller or a narrator.
- Help your child develop their vocabulary by asking what words mean or to find a word that means your word or phrase.
- 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.
- Discuss the features of a non fiction pages and books.

Maths Warm Ups
Aim to do 1 each day and try to record in your blue maths exercise book.
Days 1-3 are practical activities. Use the maths activities booklets links, if you would prefer something less practical. Again, aim to record in your blue maths exercise book rather than printing.
