Class 3

Welcome to Class 3



This term we are focusing on reading, spelling and maths.

Homework will be given weekly and is due in on Friday. Reading bugs and Timestable Rockstars are additional homework that we encourage the children to do.

Please make sure your home readers are in school every day and that they are signed. I would like all children to read at least three times a week with their adult at home. Remember that you can also include books which you have read on the Reading Bug! They will count to the total of times you have read in the week.

All of the spellings we are learning in class are available on the spelling link to the right, along with additional challenges you might want to try. Try to practice as often as you can - practice makes perfect!
