Reading -  BIG PUSH ON READING TARGETS THIS WINTER...

  • GUIDED READING - I have reset you all to the correct level for you when using First News iHUB.  Over half term I have assigned a range of animal theme news activities from the last two years.  All of these will build up your topic theme understanding for animal conservation/extinction.  Do what you can/wish to. HP for every task you do.
  • Please return Term 2 reading books to school as you should have now finished them.
  • INDEPENDENT - Please read a minimum of 3 times a week (15mins a session) ideally daily and have your card signed.  Do not record your guided reading on the card as that is separate.
  • *****Outstanding BLOG task to be finished ****** Please have a go at getting on Reading Cloud - we know there are problems.  Also Purple Mash.  We are trying to find a good place to write short blogs about the books we have enjoyed.  To be on the safe side also email it into ks2@thenewforestschool.wilts.sch.uk and we will build a reading blogging page for our website if Reading Cloud does not work.  

Grammar and Punctuation - Finish the Term 3 revision of Year 3 curriculum using SPAG.com.  I've set you Grammar tests to do - suggestion of one a week as there are 25 questions in each.  

I will be closing access to the Year 3 tests on Friday 2nd March to review your answers.HP for every completed test

Now I've also set Year 4 curriculum revision as above.
