Year 3 visited Belmont Estate which is a Re-Wildering project. We explored the site and saw a range of trees and plants. We even had the chance to see the cows and calves and pet the pigs. We will be going back to explore Belmont in the spring term.
We would love you to read for 10 minutes a day at home with your child. If your child read's 5 times at home in a week they can spend some time with our Mabel our school guinea pig!
Record all Home Learning in your Reading Record Diary.
Every Friday, children will be tested in school on their times tables. Children should spend 5 to 10 minutes each night on Times Tables Rockstars or Sumdog. On Friday, children will receive a score out of 10 which will be recorded in reading diaries for parents to see. Please ensure Reading diaries are brought into school daily.
We now use Spelling shed for our spellings. Your child should be encouraged to spend 5 to 10 minutes on Spelling shed. Your child will be tested on the spellings that they have practiced that week. Your child's log in is in their reading record. The link for spelling shed is https://www.edshed.com/en-gb/login
Home Work Challenges
Each week on a Monday your child will be set a maths and phonics/reading challenge. Your child should have a go at each challenge by Friday each week.
