Welcome to Year 3!
Mrs Shah-Rao, Mr Down, Mrs Ridolfo, and Mrs Christison all welcome you to the Year 3 Team Page!
We are starting our new ‘opening worlds unit’ for this final term on The Stone Age. We will be learning all about how, when, where and why Stonehenge was built and the types of people who lived around that time.
Please continue to visit our ClassDojo class story for regular updates and photographs that record our learning.
Accelerated Reader is a computerised programme that is designed to improve children’s reading ability and to raise their reading age.
The Accelerated Reader Program works by identifying a child’s ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development) which is a selection of books that will not only match their ability, but will also challenge them and develop their vocabulary.
Each child takes an online comprehension test in order to determine their ZPD. Children will be directed to choose books from the class library that fall within this range. When they have ﬁnished the book, they will take a short, electronic quiz that assesses their understanding. It also enables teachers to closely monitor individual reading progress and ensure that children are selecting books that are challenging enough to meet their individual needs. Teachers will have meaningful discussions about a child’s reading: what they have learnt and how we can help them to develop.
You are able to check your child’s progress using HomeConnect by following this link.
If your child is looking for something new to read these are the top 100 books for Year 3 children;
TT Rockstars and Numbots
Each child will have their own log ins for TT-Rockstars and Numbots. We encourage the children to spend 5-10 minutes per day on either of these programmes to support their Maths fluency and prepare them for the Times Table check in Year 4.
Please follow the link to find your way to TT Rockstars.
Our home learning is set on Class Dojo each Thursday, please contact your class teacher if there is any issue with your child’s class Dojo account.
