Learning In School

  Primary 3

Term 1

 

This is an overview of what we are learning in school.

Please support your child by discussing and reinforcing at home.

 

Literacy:

  • Full Stops and capital Letters
  • Writing in sentences
  • We will be talking about authors, illustrators, fiction and non-fiction.
  • We are encouraging the children to write independently. Please encourage the children at home to write a few sentences. We praise the children for having a try at more difficult words rather than correcting every mistake. This builds their confidence in writing

 

 

Reading:

We are reviewing our policy on sending reading books home as this is key to the children's progress. We are still reading together in class.

The children still love to hear a story, please encourage reading for enjoyment by reading with your child. This might be on-line books or books from home. Ten minutes a day can make a huge difference.
