Dear Year 3 children,
Ensure you are reading for at least 30 minutes daily. This could be your school reading book, a home book, Bug Club or any other text you enjoy. Read to your adults or siblings, model an outstanding level of fluency and expression and remember to pause at the punctuation. Don’t forget to identify any new words and unknown vocabulary and find the definitions (use a dictionary, also use online dictionaries and thesauruses to support you with this or even ask your adults for the meaning). You may wish to keep a record of the unfamiliar vocabulary you have explored and share it with your teachers and peers.
You still need to be moving through the colour bands and improving your reading skills. Remember to log into your Bug Club account regularly, your teachers are monitoring this closely and are able to check your activity online, so make sure you’re answering to all questions properly before ending a book. I am sure you all have books in your ‘Bug Club Library’, if you have completed all of them, ask your adults to email Mr Hollingsworth and we will upload more books for you.
For the Comprehension task today, remember to use the reading strategies and inferential skills we have taught you in school to help you answer all questions correctly.
Remember to read the question carefully, underline the keywords, scan the text and find the correct evidence in the text.
Ask an adult to check your comprehension answers and perhaps they could mark it at the end of the day, when the answers will be available on the website.
Have fun reading!
