Class 3

Welcome to Class 3!

 

 

 

Welcome to our Class Page! 

 

Important days to remember each week:

 

Monday - PE kits should be in school. Homework hand in day.

Wednesday - Homework is given out.

Friday - PE kits can go home to be washed ready for Monday. 

 

Due to the nature of our RWI spelling scheme, spelling tests take place at the end of the unit. This could last a week or a few days dependent on how the children are getting on. Please ensure your child learns the 'spelling patter/rule' when the spellings come home each week. 

 

Reading is an important life skill. Please ensure you read with your child at least 5 times a week and sign their diary. 

 

Times-tables underpin so much of the Maths in key stage two. Please ensure your child learns the times-table they have been set. A quiz is given every 2-3 weeks to allow the children time to learn them at speed. To ensure they do not forget any times-tables, please spend time of TTrockstars each week. 

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns,

Spring Term Learning

Maths

Year 3 Spring Learning:

Year 4 Spring Learning:

 

In June the year four children will take the MTC - Multiplication Checks. This is an online test where children have six seconds per question, 25 questions, based on their mental knowledge of the times tables. 

 

 

English 

In English this term, children will have a range of opportunities to write in a variety of genres and different view points. Children will explore their drama skills to immerse themselves in their character and plot, while having great fun in the process! 

 

Children will model a detailed writing process in their own writes, beginning with analysis of the genre, followed by exploring the grammatical skills that will add to the genre's effect, then moving on to a detailed writing experience, including drafting, editing and publishing their writing. 

 

A large part of our writing will include the exploration of language, encouraging the children to develop a depth of language that adds to effect and meaning in both fictional and non-fiction writing. 

 

Reading is essential to the writing process. We will have regular opportunities to read for pleasure, read for understanding - through comprehension, and read for fluency during our guided reading sessions.
