We will provide this equipment where required.

    Spellings
    Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags. You also now have a Spelling Shed login for use to further practise spellings at home.

     

    Spelling Shed - https://www.edshed.com/en-us/Login

    Your child's weekly spelling list will be uploaded to Spelling Shed for further practise. Log ins can be found in the front of your child's reading record.

     

    Reading Record

    Please use your child’s reading record to keep a record of the books your child reads and to enter a comment about their reading. These may be books they have brought home from school, ones they have borrowed from the library or an e-library book. This record will help us to know what your child can do and inform us about the range of books they have read. We will also write in the record when your child has read in school and provide an appropriate next step for them to practise e.g. a particular tricky word or grapheme.

    English

    In Year 3, children continue to learn to write different types of texts and we use model texts to highlight the key features of these texts before children create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 3.

    Maths

    As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths Textbooks and Workbooks in school. To find out more, visit  https://mathsnoproblem.com/en/parent-videos/ to watch parent videos all about how we teach Maths at St Luke's. The table below highlights the textbook and chapters that we are learning in Year 3. If you wish to purchase a copy of the Maths No Problem Textbook A and B and Workbook A and B for your year group for use at home and also find out more about how Maths is taught in school, these are available to order at http://www.mathsnoproblem.co.uk/mathematics/primary-key-stage1-and-key-stage-2/maths-no-problem.html

    We ask all parents to support children with learning their number bonds and times tables at home; this is key to children being successful as Mathematicians.

    Reading

    During the year, we will use a range of texts to develop our reading skills and read stories written by a range of authors. The texts we will use are detailed in the document below.

     

    Currently, we are reading 'There's a Pharaoh in our Bath!' by Jeremy Strong.

    Our Class Country is Italy.
    We will be learning all about Italy. We will investigate where it is in the world and find out facts about what it is like to live in Italy.
