Rewards

We use a range of rewards throughout Year Three from stickers, dojo points, writer of the week and weekly Celebration Certificates which are presented in our Celebration Assemblies.

In Year Three, the children who did not achieve the Phonics Screening assessment retake in Year Two will complete further work around developing their phonological awareness. The children will continue to follow the Little Wandle phonics programme.

Throughout the year, parents will be invited to share their children's achievements in class, join in with the children’s experiences and come on school trips and local visits if able to volunteer some time.
