Year 3 Reading Passport 


Over the summer, each class teacher has been compiling a list of 20 books to read by the end of the year. These books are a mix of different texts, authors and text types. These can be read by the children, or read to them depending on your child's reading stage. 

Children will be coming home with their own reading passport. This will show the 20 books for your child to read by the end of their class year. Over the year, the children will have the opportunity to read these books at home, and then you can sign the passport when the books have been read at home. All of the books that are on the passport are available from each class reading area, though you may have some copies at home. 

After a book has been read and signed by an adult, a stamp or a sticker will be added to the passport in class to show that that book has been read. Once your child has read all of their books for the year, they will receive a certificate, a prize and their name will go onto our school Wall of Fame display. 

We hope that this will help to encourage the children of St Joseph's to develop their love of reading for pleasure, and to help them to find new authors, text types and books that will spark their interest. 

Happy Reading!

Fire safety talk
 Year 3 have had a visit from two firefighters. The children learnt ways to stay safe from fire and engaged really well, asking some interesting questions and completing a quiz at the end of the session. They learnt what to do if an item of their clothing caught fire (stop, drop and roll) and actions to help them remember this.

Year 3 had lots of fun while learning about soil formation. We have made wormeries and can’t wait to see how our slimy friends mix up the different layers!
