Changing of Reading Books

Reading Focus: Week Beginning 15.01.18
This week the children are focusing on stories and becoming familiar with different story types.
In addition the children will be working on developing on their comprehension skills in particular their Retrieve and Interpret skills.
A great way to share a book together at home is to complete a book review and discussing elements such as favourite or most disliked character, funniest, saddest part of the story and why?
Please find below copies of a book review sheet for fiction and one for non-fiction to print off and complete.
New topic starting
Shortly letters will be sent home informing you of the date and time for the children to share their learning from our new topic.
We are currently finalising details for a visit from a local bird sanctuary.
They will be bringing a selection of owls into school to see the children.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable session last year and we look forward to sending the details home once we have them.
Please hand your homework book into the box provided on a Wednesday and you will get this back on a Thursday!
Remember to complete the X Factor example, a spelling activity and a homework grid square
This half term in English, children in Year Three will be creating information leaflets about a chosen predator focussing on using a range of presentation features to engage the reader.
Then in the later half of the term the children will be creating a discovery story involving a mystery egg that they have discovered.
In Maths this half term, we will be developing our understanding of multiplication and division.
Please continue to practice times tables with your child by completing the example sent home weekly!
Well Done to all children in the X Factor for this half term! Keep up the great work. You are all superstars!

PE KIT - could you please try to ensure that your child has a full indoor and outdoor PE kit in school all term.
Currently there are children each week who do not have any or the correct kit to allow them to fully enjoy their PE lesson.
As a brief reminder, indoor kit is black shorts, a plain white t-shirt and plimsolls whilst outdoor kit is a pair of track suit trousers, a suitable top to go over the indoor kit and a pair of trainers.
Many Thanks the Year Three Team
