Year 3 B - Mr McGorian 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Mr McGorian’s Year 3 class page.

This year will be extremely busy and this parent/carer information will provide you with the information you need:
Monday - Outdoor PE
Wednesday - Indoor PE
On the days that your child has a PE lesson we ask that they come to school in their PE/Games kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.
Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits.
Times Tables - Every child has been given a username and password to access Times Tables Rock Stars. This is a brilliant resource to help practise times tables facts and the children can track their own progress as well as teachers. The login details can be found at the front of your child's planner.
Spellings - New spellings will be given out every Monday and the children will be tested on those spellings every Friday. Each child has been given a username and password to access Spelling Shed. This is a great resource to help practise spelling rules. The login details can be found at the front of your child's planner.
Reading – We will be using a reading scheme called ‘Accelerated Reader’. This scheme will identify a score for your child and recommend suitable books based on that score. You may feel that the books being recommended to your child are ‘easy’, but this scheme has been designed to test your child on their understanding of the content of the book, not the fluency of their reading. Once your child completes their book, they need to bring the book back into school and complete a short test on an iPad in school. They will receive a percentage score and the scheme will then recommend a new book for them to read. I will hear all of the children read each week as part of the reciprocal reading sessions.
Please be advised that school planners/journals should still be used to record any reading that takes place inside and outside of school and they will be collected in every Friday to be checked and signed. All children should be reading at least a few pages (approximately 10) every day at home.
Should you have any queries or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to speak to me at the door after school or contact me via the school office (0151 487 5678) or firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
