WELCOME TO CLASS 3
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. Everyone is extremely excited to be back after Christmas and looking forward to an exciting Spring term!
WHAT WILL WE BE LEARNING?
Maths - This term in Maths, we will be working on Multiplication and Division. We will then be using this knowledge to solve challenging mathematical problems . 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 will be focused on the book ‘The Happy Prince’. We will use this book to help grow and develop our knowledge around writing. For the first few weeks of the term we will be finishing our book ‘Pugs of the Frozen North’ in our reading lessons. Following this we will be moving onto an exciting new book!
Science – The first Science topic of the term is ‘Sound’ in which will be doing lots of work investigating sound and how and why things sound like they do. During the second half term, we will be exploring Earth and Space.
Topic – The topic in Class 3 is ‘Kings and Queens’. We are going to investigate the role of monarchs and how they shaped our History. We will be taking a closer look in particular at Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria. Our Art links closely with the topic as we will be researching the design and shapes of castles.
Please keep checking on our page to see what different things we are learning about in Class 3.
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 aerobics and yoga with Mr Hogg on a Monday 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.
