WELCOME TO CLASS 3
Welcome back for our third and final term of this year! The Class 3 team are extremely excited and very much looking forward to the exciting learning that the summer term will bring.
We have both Year Two and Year Three children in our class. Class 3 is taught by Mr Hogg. We are also very lucky to be joined every day by Miss Mulligan and Mrs Mcleish.
WHAT WILL WE BE LEARNING?
Maths - This term in Maths, we will be doing lots of practical work. Our focus will be measurement and in particular: time, length, mass and capacity. We will be continuing our work on TT Rockstars to develop our times-tables, as well with our Rapid Recall Facts three times a week to build our fluency.
English – Our writing lessons this term are based on our book ‘The Secret of Black Rock’. A book where a rock in the ocean is not all what it seems. In our reading lessons, we will be studying the classic ‘Stuart Little’.
Science – The Science topic this term is ‘Living Things and their Habitats’ in which will be doing lots of work investigating all creatures big and small and why certain animals live in specific environments.
Topic – The topic in Class 3 is ‘Brilliant Bentham’. We are going to investigate our home town of Bentham. Children will explore both the geographical and historical elements of Bentham and its surrounding area.
What to bring: Each day, book bags should be brought to school and in them your homework diary, reading book and water bottles. Please ensure to bring a coat every day as the weather is always changing in Bentham.
Spellings: Class 3 will be tested on their spellings every Friday. A spelling list will be sent out at the start of every half term by email and a copy will be stuck into their Brain Builder books. The children will need to learn the class spellings, along with some personal spellings each week. Spelling test books will now go home on Friday for parents to check how their children did but must be returned the following Monday.
Reading Books: Class 3 will use the Accelerated Reading Scheme. Children will choose a book which they would like to read and this will be their reading book for both home and school. It is important that this book comes into school every day. Please ensure children have noted in their homework diaries when they have read at home. Those who are consistently reading at home will receive house points at school.
Brain Builders: Brain builder homework will be sent out in the first week of half term and we ask that these are returned in the last week of half term. Brain builder work will include a range of activities and tasks linked to the different subject areas we are covering in school.
PE: Class 3 will be doing PE with Mr Hogg on a Friday and games with Coach Gunn on a Tuesday. Children will continue to come in their PE kit for the entire day. Please ensure children are not wearing earrings on these days. If they cannot remove them, they won’t be able to take part in the lessons. On PE days, children should come to school in a plain white t-shirt, plain dark coloured joggers or shorts, plain dark coloured jumper (not school jumper), trainers and/or pumps.
