Welcome to Class 3’s page!
During the year, this page will be regularly updated with 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.
Welcome to Class 3!
I am very excited to welcome our new year 3 children to Class 3 and to welcome back our year 4 children.
We have a very exciting year ahead! Our 'theme' for the first term is Water. In English we will be reading Journey to the River Sea and using the text to support and develop our writing, while using the Amazon River to link our Geography topic of 'Rivers and the Water Cycle'. In science we will focus on states of matter, in particular the different states of water.
You are very welcome in the classroom between 8:35am and 9:00am on Friday morning to look at your child's books and our classroom displays.
Please add a comment to our 'Proud Parents' display so that we can celebrate efforts and achievements at home and at school. I look forward to filling our display with your lovely comments!
Homework will alternate between Maths fluency and English grammar, it will be set on a Thursday to be returned the following Tuesday (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 misspelled. 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.
I expect children to read for a minimum of 10 minutes every night, this could be your child reading to you or another adult, or you reading to your child. Please record all shared reading in your child's reading record. Books and reading records need to be in school every day and will be checked regularly.
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 me if you have any concerns. If you require a longer appointment please arrange a suitable time via the office.
Keep checking our class page to find out what we have been up to in Class Three!
