Class 3 - Miss Rodgers 2019 - 2020

Miss Rodgers

Welcome to Class 3!


Our Autumn term topic is 'The Mayan Civilisation' and we will incorporate this into different curriculum areas.

In English, we will start the term off looking at poetry and all the different types of poetry that there are. We will then have a go at writing our own poetry. We will also be focusing on Reports, Myths and Letters and Diary entries later in the term. 

In Maths, we will be focusing on Number and Place value. We will be looking at addition and subtraction, multiplication and division of numbers throughout the term. We will also be incorporating Maths through active PE.

In Science, our first topic is Forces. We will be looking at what different forces there are and the affect they can have on objects. We will also be looking at magnetism and comparing how magnetic different objects are based on their properties. In the second half of the term, we will move onto our topic of Health and Nutrition!

Our first Come and See topic of the term is Homes. In this, we will explore how God is present in every home. We will then move onto our topic of Promises.

Within History, we will be looking at the creativity of the Maya Civilisation. We will be looking at chronology and will be identifying where some periods studied fit into a chronological framework by noting connections, trends and contrasts over time. 

In Geography, we will be developing our locational knowledge, particularly of the Americas. We will also be identifying Human and Physical Geography and developing our Geographical skills and fieldwork practice by studying maps, atlases and globes and using keys, symbols and references.  

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 WEDNESDAY. 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 Rodgers & Miss Dolby.
