St Nicholas Church of EnglandPrimary Academy


Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy




In Year 3 it is expected that the children will be reading 5 times a week and starting to make entries into their own Journals. This could be what they have learnt, what they have read about or what they enjoyed of the book. Whilst the children can read alone, it is encouraged for them to read aloud to an adult. This helps them with words that they don't know and enables the adult to ask questions about the book, building the children's comprehension skills. If you would like a list of some simple questions that you could ask, please speak to Mr Lee. 

Keep reading Year 3 and let's try and have the most tickets in the box every Friday! 


During our Reading lessons at school, we spend Monday's and Friday's lessons working with our Class Book. During the rest of our Reading lessons we focus on Reading Comprehension skills using high quality fiction, non-fiction texts and poems.
