Reading

Please ensure your P3 is reading daily, whether from your own home library or from websites which provide ebooks. Moneyrea PS has a subscription to Bug Club. Your P3 has a unique profile (login details in green folder collected from school) which gives them access to whichever level of books they currently read in class. Once a level is finished, they can automatically progress to the next level.

 

I would also recommend oxfordowl.co.uk which is free and provides hundreds of Oxford Reading Tree titles. All you need to do is register to use this excellent resource.

Please have a look at the class sub-page entitled 'Multi-Sensory Learning'. In these photos class members are busy doing spelling activities eg using magnetic letters, stampers, playdough, letter squares etc to help them learn their spellings.

High Frequency Words

Generally, in class, there is always a cloze procedure to accompany a comprehension. You and your P3 can decide which activity to complete. Focus in the comprehension is always on answering the questions using correct punctuation (ie capital letters and full stops). Equally important is giving full, comprehension-style answers, using vocabulary from the question and language from the text.

Week 1: 'Houses and Homes....'

Week 2: 'What Makes....'

Please make sure your child keeps working at forming letters correctly using our continuous cursive handwriting style. we have started making some joins, primarily 'top joins' such as oo. ou, oi etc. We usually join letters which make our focus sound for the week, so, for example in Week 1 of Term 3 the joins would be aw/al and then oi/oy in week 2. Sharp pencils, finger spaces, tall letters to the top, small letters half way.....all important handwriting tips!
