Home Reading

Mrs Sutcliffe and Mrs Johnson will collect your home reading diaries every day. There is a ‘Home Reading Diary’ box in the classroom for you to put your book in when you arrive in the morning. If you bring your reading diary in you will get 1 turtle and if you bring your diary in AND a grown-up (or you, if your adults have said you can) has written in it, you will get 2 turtles on our home reading chart. Remember – your house will get a house point if everyone brings their diary in and they will get 2 house points if everyone has read too!

When you receive 9 or 10 turtles on the chart, you will be awarded with a Turtle bookmark. Each week after this, you will be awarded with a sticker for earning 9 or 10 turtles. After you have collected 10 stickers on your bookmark, you will get to choose your own book from Mrs Hoggarth-Allen’s office.



Home Spellings

From the beginning of Spring Term 1, Year 3 will be doing their spellings a little differently. We will be sending home a list of spelling words to learn, rather than a set of 3 dictation sentences. These words will slot in with the writing that we are doing in our English sessions so will ensure that the children have the opportunity to utilise these in their everyday writing, not just their spelling tests.


These words will come home in the yellow ‘Home Spelling’ book that you have seen before and the test will take place on a Friday morning in the red ‘Spelling Test’ books that the children used to use. The children will continue to focus on learning their spelling words and the rules for how to use them in their spelling and phonics sessions on a daily basis.


Please continue to help your child practise their spellings at home as your support and help is invaluable.



Home Learning


In Year 3, home learning will be a little bit different to what you are used to. Each week, your child will be sent home with a home learning grid. Each week your child will choose two home learning activities to complete - English, Maths and/or Creative and these will be found on the home learning grid in your child's blue Home Learning book. The grid will contain 6 weeks-worth (sometimes less - depending on the length of the half term) of home learning tasks. It is expected that your child will choose different pieces of home learning each week and Mrs Sutcliffe will keep a record of which pieces are being completed so that all children are accessing ALL areas of learning in one way or another.


Home learning will be sent home on Fridays and will be due back in on Wednesdays, giving your child 4 days to complete their chosen task. All of the tasks will link as closely as possible to the topic, Maths and English learning that we are doing in class.


Autumn Term 1 Home Learning


Well done for an amazing first half term of brilliant home learning! You have written some wonderful fact sheets about pharaohs, come up with some super rules for Ancient Egyptian law, used hieroglyphic numbers effectively and been amazingly creative.  I’ve been so impressed with your pyramids, sundials, death masks and mummies.


I can’t wait to see what the next half term brings!

Autumn Term 2 Home Learning


Welcome back to Autumn Term 2 – below is a link to the home learning grid for this half term and a copy of the resources for Week 1’s activities. Don’t forget that we are now choosing TWO home learning tasks each week to complete.
