Class 3 2017 - 2018

Miss Sanders

Welcome to Class 3!

We have lots of exciting things to look forward to during the Spring term! Our topic is Iron Man and we will incorporate this into different areas of the curriculum in exciting ways!

In English, we will be reading the book 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. In Maths, we will be moving onto fractions and in Science, we will be doing lots of fun investigations for our forces and magnets topic!

Our Come and See topic is 'Listening and Sharing'. In this, we will be focusing on how Jesus gives himself to us in a special way. 

In History, we will be studying the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will travel back to pre-historic Britain to look at things such as people, clothes, food and cave art before travelling forwards into the Bronze Age, looking at Stonehenge and making 3D models. We will then move into the Iron Age and look at food, jobs and houses during this time.

We will continue to improve our spelling, punctuation and grammar throughout our English work as well as across 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 and WEDNESDAY. Children are expected to be wearing their school PE kit and pumps (school shoes/trainers are NOT to be worn).

Homework will be given out every Friday and will need to be returned by the following Thursday. This will consist of spellings, times tables and another activity based around classroom activities from that week.

It is important to encourage your child to read at home. Please sign your child's reading diary at least twice per week so that their reading books can be changed. Reading and homework are monitored and there will be dojo points rewarded to children who are regular readers and complete their homework!
