Welcome to Class 3
Welcome back after an eventful Christmas. We all enjoyed the panto, parties and Christmas dinner.
This term we will continue our Roman topic. In PE we will be doing dance and games. Please make sure children have their PE kit in school all week.
Last half term we started learning about the Romans. For our art project we designed our own in our learning journals. The children created their designs for their calendar. They also got to experiment with ceramic tiles called 'tesserae' and mortar.
In science last term we learned about electricity. We used our knowledge to design and produce our own buzzer game. The children thoroughly enjoyed the project and we were pleased with the final product, which the children took home.
WORD and NUMBER STUDY BOOK
In class three we will also be sending home a maths problem each week. This is to develop reasoning skills and could be based on class work or something that we feel needs revising.
Each Thursday children will be provide with a list of 10 spellings. These will be based on the spellling rule taught during that week. The following week children will have a minute test each day over the course of the week. The expectation is that children will learn a cuople more each day and increase their score. In addition the children will choose 5 words from the common exception list each week and highlight them as they get them correct.
These will be tested every Thursday.
Any practise takes place in their WORD and NUMBER STUDY BOOK.
In school we are using the programme Times Table Rockstars to encorage children to learn their times tables as they are valuable to maths success. This programme can easily be accessed at home as all the children have a personnal log in. We also access regularly in school and track children's progress. See our new display in the hall.
Enjoy, have fun and learn!
