Class 3

Welcome to class 3! Taught by Miss Greenwood and Miss Hargreaves, with support from Miss Sheard and Mrs Riley. 

General Reminders 

HOMEWORK is given out on a Friday afternoon and is to be brought in on a Wednesday, ready to be checked as a class on a Thursday. SPELLINGS, for Miss Greenwood's phonics group, are also handed out on a Friday, to prepare children for their spelling test on Thursdays.                                                         Children will need their PE KITS (black shorts and a white t-shirt, with pumps or trainers) on a Monday for PE with Miss Hargreaves and a Tuesday for PE lessons with a professional coach. Children should have their trainers on both of those days, weather depending on where their lesson will take place. Earings must be removed for sports. Please make sure that uniform, as well as PE kit are labelled with names.

Reading and Literacy

READING RECORDS should be written in by an adult at home once a week to show any progress made with their accelerated reader book. A member of staff will also read once a week with each child, and write in their accelerated reader quiz scores. Children will also read independantly for 15 minutes a day at school, and are expected to do the same at home. Class 3 do Literacy every morning for an hour, working on our writing and comprehension skills. Children will recieve a comprehension homework, for practice, every two weeks.​​ Our termly project will link with our themes of writing.

This Term in Class 3

This term our project is 'Bright sparks!' Within this project we will be looking at electricity, light and sound through Science, History and DT. This year, we will be investigating our project along with class 4, participating in a carousel of activities based around the project, every Wednesday afternoon. This way, children will be able to interact with another class one day a week, sharing ideas and learning outside of their own classroom. We look forward to building circuits and investigating the history of electricity. Keep an eye on Twitter for our class pictures!                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Maths

Class 3 do an hour of maths every morning, practicing our arithmetic, reasoning and problem solving throughout every objective. Currently, we are developing our knowledge of numbers and place value, looking at numbers to 1000, writing and ordering them. Every other week, children will recieve a piece of maths homework, linked to that week's learning. Ask your children to explain 'how they know' the answer to a homework question, or what they have learned at school - to practice their reasoning skills!

 

If you have any concerns or problems, please come to the door before or after school and speak to one of our class staff members. If required, don't hesitate to make an appointment with us one day after school.

We are going to have a fantastic first year of key stage two!

Miss Greenwood
