Class 3 2018 - 2019

Miss Sanders

Welcome to Class 3!

Our Spring term topic is 'The Iron Man' and we will incorporate this into different curriculum areas.

In English, we will be reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. We will be doing lots of activities based around the book, aswell as looking at Poetry and Instruction texts. 

In Maths, we will be moving onto Multiplication and Division. We will be recalling related facts for our 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables!

In Science, we will start the term by looking at forces. We will be comparing how things move on different surfaces, observe how magnets attract and repel and group materials based on their magnetic properties.

Our first Come and See topic of the term is 'Journeys'. In this, we will be focusing on the journey of the Christian family with Jesus through the Church's year.

Within History, we will be looking at the Stone Age to Iron Age. We will explore the changes over time through a range of enquiry and investigation. We will continue to develop our geography skills by describing and understanding the key aspects of human geography.

Our spelling, punctuation and grammar will continue to improve throughout our English work as well as other curriculum areas. 

We will have a spelling test every Friday. We will also be working on our times tables and will have weekly times tables tests. All children have a log in for Times Table Rockstars so please access this if possible as it is a fun and enjoyable way for children to practise their times tables. 

Important information:

We have PE every TUESDAY. Children are expected to be wearing their full school PE kit and pumps (school shoes/trainers are NOT to be worn).

Homework will be given out every Friday and is to be returned on the following Wednesday or Thursday. This will consist of spellings and times tables. 

It is really important to encourage your child to read at home. Please sign your child's reading diary at least three per week so that their reading books can be changed. Reading is monitored daily and regular readers are rewarded with dojo points and other prizes. 

Please check our school website, twitter and newsletters for any upcoming events.

Thank you,

Miss Sanders & Mrs O'Brien
