Reading at home
In the summer term, we are having a big push on reading in Year 3 and 4. We are setting up a new incentive to encourage children to regularly read at home. Our expectation is that children read for 15 minutes and fill in their reading record a minimum of 5 times a week, every day counts! Each child will work towards a bronze, silver and gold badges just like the Year 5 and 6 children and these badges will be given out in Phase Assembly. To achieve their first badge, children need to have 25 entries by half term (this equates to reading on average 5 days a week) starting from Monday 24th April. Teachers will be tracking this in classrooms.
We hope that you agree that reading is so important and we can’t wait to see the children starting to get their badges.
Times Table Rockstars
This year, there will be a big focus on times tables in both Year 3 and 4. There will be lots of exciting battles and challenges set on Times Table Rockstars to ensure learning them is made fun.
