Welcome to Kingfisher Class!
Year 3 is a fun, exciting and challenging year at Winterslow Primary. Learning together, we take responsibility for our work and great pride in our achievements. Using our 'learning gems' as guidance, we continue to grow as enthusiastic, independent learners.
Home learning tasks will be added to our class page by Monday of each week and these will run alongside learning in school. This will enable you to continue to support your child’s learning in a meaningful way and enables us to work together effectively. It is important that children complete the home learning each week and get into the routine of working from home. Home learning partnerships with school are crucial in supporting your child’s success and we very much look forward to working alongside you.
Reading Books- It is important that you hear your child read regularly at home. We recommend a minimum of five times a week. Please record your child's reading at home by dating and signing their record book, so we can ensure your child is receiving support with their reading.
Spellings-A sticker in the front of their reading record book to identifies their spelling group. Your child's spellings will be tested in school on a Friday. We would encourage you to use fun and practical activities to support spellings as well as writing each word.
Handwriting- Letter formation and joins are the focus for handwriting throughout Year 3. Each week we will upload a focus sheet for you to use at home with your child. We have also included a master sheet which you may find useful to use when supporting your child with their spellings.
Professor Assessor- Using their log in your child will be able to access their weekly home learning task set through Professor Assessor. Your child may initially need some support to navigate the platform (logging on and accessing the tasks) but we politely request that you allow them to complete the questions as independently as possible. (They may need a pen and paper to make notes as they complete the tasks.) This will enable us to use the completed home learning to provide focused support where required.
