Year 3 Curriculum overview...
Phonics is taught daily in school and here at St Christophers we use a scheme called Read Write Inc (RWI). RWI is a structured and systematic approach which is designed to create fluent readers and willing writers. Children will gain confidence speaking aloud by practising to read letters (or groups of letters) and saying the sounds which they represent. It is vital these phonemes (sounds) are pronounced correctly. Children will read words by blending the sounds together.
Children will be given home reading books after they have read a particular book several times during their RWI lessons. This will either be every 3 or 5 every days, depending on their group level. Your child's group teacher will let your child know when to return their book.
E books are also allocated regularly to the Oxford Owl website and are available to read by logging in. All children should have a log in as this is the same as previous years. If you are unsure or don't have a log in please let me know.
For further information regarding RWI visit www.oxfordowl.co.uk
Once your child is reading more fluently and writing well, he or she will progress to English lessons with Mr Stevenson. Your child will come home with a school reading book each Friday and should return it the following Thursday please.
Our PE day this year is Friday. The school PE kit is available from Lazer School Wear, St Mary’s Road in Garston. This is a red t-shirt with the school badge and school blue shorts. However, your child can also wear a plain red t-shirt and dark blue shorts that are available from most supermarkets.
This is part of our school uniform and must be worn for PE lessons.
Football kits and other sportswear will not be allowed.
The children can wear any training shoes for PE.
Spellings will be given out each Friday and children should practise these at home (and in school) as much as possible throughout the week. We will have a short informal test on a Friday morning.
Statutory Spelling List for year 3 and 4
Every child should already have a log in to practise their times tables on TT Rockstars. If your child is new to our school or cannot remember their log in details, please let me know and I will ensure one is created or re-given.
