Reading for Pleasure books for class

As part of our focus on reading in school, we would like to develop the lending library of books within each class. This will enable the children to foster a passion and love of reading at Belmont and ensure that they have access to high quality texts.
Please find links to the book list that has a variety of books that we would love to have in class.  Once a book has been donated to the class we will add a tick to show we now have it.  Please check the list to ensure that the book that you would like to donate is one that we don't already have.
These books will be stamped to show who has generously donated them and shared with all the class.
The books come from the Recommended Books for Year 3 List which can be found below.

Year 3 recommended Book list 

 

Online Safety

We have been having online safety lessons in Year 3 using the CEOP resource Jessie and Friends. Please see letter and help sheet resource below for further information. You may also like to play the online game with your child which is linked to our lessons to promote further discussions.

Water Bottles 

Please ensure that your child brings a named water bottle to school with them each day so that they can hydrate regularly throughout the day. 

Reading Records and Books

  • Please ensure that all books are recorded in the reading record along with the dates that reading has taken place. We encourage daily reading. 
  • Please sign/initial these entries.
  • Comments about the book and your child's reading are welcomed with at least 3 comments a week. These can be written by the adult or child ( at least one comment should be from an adult). 
  • All reading records are checked on Mondays so please send into school even if a new book is not needed.
  • Reading books can be changed as needed - on any day of the week.
  • Children may record their own books in the reading record so we can see what else they are reading.

Spring Topic 

Our topic this term is CLINK where we will be learning about the Stone Ag.           Spring Learning Tree

 

The below list is part of an initiative called Word Aware that we are using in school. We thought it would be helpful to share this list with you so that you can use some of these words at home when discussing the topic. If your child speaks a different language at home, it would be helpful to discuss and translate these words using your home language. We may add to this list during the topic as new words are introduced.

Knowledge Organisers

Further information about the children's learning is available on our new Knowledge Organisers. This can be found in the Willow and Elm Google Classrooms. The link will be updated when the children have joined their new Google classroom.

Here is a link to the handwriting guidelines to enable you to support your children practising letter formation at home.
