Welcome to Class 3’s page!
During the year we will be regularly updating this page by adding pictures, videos and information to show you what we have been doing. There will also be some important information about our day to day routine and upcoming events.
It's lovely to see you all after the half term holiday. We have another busy term ahead. This term our topic will be 'Early Islamic Settlements'. In English, we will be reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and stories from Arabian Nights, using the texts to support and develop the use of dialogue within our writing . Maths will be focusing on length, perimeter and area and fractions. PE will be on FRIDAY afternoons.
The whole school value for this term is 'Responsibility and Justice'; we will be focusing on our value in worship and in class, linking it to other areas of learning where appropriate.
You are very welcome in the classroom between 8:35am until 9:00am on Friday morning. Please come and look at your children’s books and our classroom displays. This year we have a display in our classroom for parents to add a comment about something their children have done during the week that makes them proud. The ‘Proud Parents’ display can praise any achievements at school or at home. We look forward to filling our display with your lovely comments!
Homework will alternate between Maths and English, it will be set on a Friday to be returned the following Thursdayday (see the homework section below). Spellings will be sent home every Monday and tested on Friday. Spellings will consist of five words following a spelling pattern that the children are learning in class and five words taken from the year three and four curriculum spelling list. We are very aware that these are challenging words and are often misspelt. It is the age related expectation that the children know these by the end of year four so please don't worry if your child finds these hard to learn or makes mistakes in their spelling test. This is an on-going target that we will also work on in class.
We expect children to read for a minimum of 15 minutes every night, this could be to somebody else or independently. Please remember to write in their reading record so we are aware that your child has read. Books and reading records need to be in school every day.
Even though we are going swimming this term please can you make sure your child has a labelled PE kit in school every day, as we will be making the most of the weather and going to field as often as possible. Please make sure your children have a green PE t-shirt, shorts, joggers, a jumper and socks in their PE kits .
Our class letter contains lots of other information about our class routines and what we will be learning about this term. Please feel free to come in and speak to us or arrange a suitable time to meet with us if you have any questions or concerns.
Keep checking our class page to find out what we have been up to in Class Three!
