Welcome to 3Ro
Welcome to 3Ro. Here is some useful information about our class routines:
Home Reading
Each child has a home reading book and record. We have assessed and chosen the level of this book for your child in order to ensure this meets their reading needs. We will read this book with your child in class but it is also important that they are read with every night at home where possible. Your child will benefit from reading 4-5 pages and then talking about what they have read. They could discuss their favourite character, what they think will happen next or answer questions you ask them. 
Every time your child reads at home, they earn a sticker on their reading chart which, when completed, will see them celebrated in our Celebration Assembly on a Monday. They also earn a raffle ticket if they read three times a week and a special treat for reading every day!
Please use the document below to help you ask your children questions as they read.

Word Mountains

We have word mountains to learn which contain high frequency words and Year 3 statutory words. These are to help your child with their reading and writing. Every week we will test word mountains  in class. Each week they will update their word mountains in order to learn them at home. Once they get them all right, they will move up on to the next word mountain.


Your child will be tested on their KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts) in class. These will link to learning in class. They will be tested on these in arithmetic and so need to be rehearsing these facts at home to help them. 

We do PE twice a week. On a Wednesday morning, we have indoor PE lessons and on a Friday afternoon we have outdoor PE lessons. Please be aware that where possible, outdoor PE lessons will take place and so your child will need to have a jumper and a warm, waterproof coat for this outdoor session. 
Your child will need: 
Indoor Kit: Children will need black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and black pumps.
Outdoor Kit: Long black or blue jogging bottoms, a white PE T-shirt and a warm black or blue jumper to keep them warm in the winter months. Children will also need suitable trainers too.
Their PE kit should be in school at all times.
