This term, we will be focusing on our topic on Let's Grow!


We all know the importance of reading and studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. 

Reading promotes achievement in all subjects, not just English. Children who are good readers tend to achieve better across the curriculum.

In Year 3, children choose their own book within banded levels and take a quiz (8.40am in the ICT Suite) when they are finished. Children are encouraged to read daily both at school and at home. We ask that parents/guardians record what they have read in their reading record. We encourage parents to listen to children and question them about the books that they are reading. 

Here's a website you can use to check if there is an Accelerated Reader quiz on a book you want to read:

We hope you are finding the spellings on Teams and we look forward to rewarding a Teacher's Award for learning 100 spellings. 


We also have our number facts 'Tree of Life' test every Monday morning, your child will come home with their completed sheet every Tuesday, so you can help with learning from their mistakes on the same sheet again or the next number facts sheet can be found on our Year 3 TEAMs page.

Below are links to Timestables Rockstars and Numbots to help at home!
