Over the first half term, class 3 have been reading a book called "The Adventurous Snail" by Dick King Smith. We have been investigating information about real snails using the internet and investigating their micro-habitat in our local area.
3D shape investigating
Class 3 have been investigating the properties of 3D shapes. We used our knowledge to build 3D shapes out of chickpeas and cocktail sticks! Some of us even managed to form some very tricky shapes!
Some of our Year 3 and 4 children took part in a local Hockey festival. They worked brilliantly as a team and had a great afternoon.
Welcome to Class 3
Welcome to Class Three
In Class 3, Year Three and Four will be taught by Miss Watson and Miss Exley will be supporting the class until the end of November.
Children in class Three will have PE every Tuesday and Thursday. PE kit should be brought into school at the start of each half term and it will be sent home to be washed in each holiday. Children will need to have trainers in school on PE days. If your child wears tights, please ensure they have socks in their bag.
Reading and library books
In Class Three children are encouraged to change their own books. They will do this once they have read to an adult (either at home or in school) and they have finished the book. Please support your child’s reading development by reading regularly with them at home. As your child becomes more independent in reading, they may not wish to read with you. Instead you could ask them to tell you about what they have read and ask them some questions about it to develop their comprehension skills. This can still be recorded in their reading diaries.
Library books will be changed every Wednesday.
The children in class three will be set 2 pages of either maths or Grammar, punctuation and spelling homework each week. They will bring homework books home on Friday and need to return them to school by the following Wednesday.
It is important for children to use the methods learnt in school for their maths work which some of you may not be familiar with. Please do not hesitate to ask for explanations of these methods or encourage your children to explain the methods to you rather than teaching them the methods you would use yourself. If your child needs any help to complete their homework they should bring it in for me to go through it with them before a Wednesday.
