Extension & Enrichment Activities

 

Please continue to hear your child read at home, even if they are now reading independently. We would be very grateful if you could record when you read together in their 'Extras Book', so that we can keep track of this at school. In year 3 we are particularly focusing on the use of intonation and expression, as well as taking note of punctuation. 

Please find below links to a number of fun extra writing activities to enjoy at home:
