Year Three is the first year in Key Stage Two. The children's education is planned using the National Curriculum via our Creative Curriculum.  We use cross-curricular learning themes in which subjects overlap to reinforce and compliment each other.  Each learning theme is planned carefully to meet the needs and capabilities of the child.  We aim to develop knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes necessary for the child's whole development and embrace 'Learning Without Limits'.

  Reading in Year 3

Image result for the more you read quote

In Year 3 reading is taught in many different ways: weekly guided reading (group discussions based around a text), shared reading (quality whole class texts) and reading across the curriculum. The focus across Key Stage 2 is on children's comprehension skills and how well they understand what they have read. You can support your child at home by hearing them read aloud at least 5 times a week (even if they are a fluent reader!) and asking them questions about what they have read. 

  • Book-band books - children can independently change their reading books as appropriate. Please ensure you child reads a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. 

  • Worlebury Reading Response Questions- You child will have brought home a bookmark with prompts to help you at home with questions and activities you can do with your child to extend their understanding of the text. 

  • Library - the school library is available to children and as a class we will try to visit once a week. Children are allowed to take home a maximum of 2 books that can be anything of their choice.

  • Autumn Term Reading Challenge> Your child will have brought home a reading challenge booklet containing 10 different reading activities you can complete together. 

  • Caught Reading Photo Challenge> Where is the coolest place you've read a book? We are looking for the best pictures of you reading in amazing spaces, adults included! 

If you have any questions about your child's reading or how reading is taught at Worlebury St Paul's, please do not hesitate to come and see us.
