We are so proud of Class 3. Every child arrived back at school last week with a positive attitude and were really excited to start in their new class. We have had the opportunity to get to know the Year 3 children and to hear everyone’s news.
We have had an exciting start to the Autumn term already with an introduction to our Ancient Egyptians topic, lots of art, Yoga and getting to know each other in our new class.
Each week from 16th September children will be asked to complete two Mathletics tasks. These should take approximately 10 minutes each. Log in details will be stuck in the reading record book from 16th September. All children also have spellings to learn each week and a multiplication table to learn. Children are also expected to read daily as part of their homework tasks. Reading books will be sent home from Wednesday 9th September and will be changed weekly on a Wednesday. Please ensure children record their reading in their Reading Record books each week and that they have their reading book and reading record in school. Spellings will be sent home weekly every Friday starting this Friday 11th September. The children will be tested at school the following Wednesday. Please make sure your child has their Spelling book every Wednesday.
Exciting learning activities
Ancient Egypt: We will be learning about the achievements of the Ancient Egyptians and exploring the importance of the River Nile to this civilisation. In art lessons we will be exploring Ancient Egyptian artefacts through sketching techniques.
Science: This term we will be finding out about the parts of a plant and the jobs each part does. We will inquire into how plants grow best and how important bees are in the lifecycle of a plant.
Tuesday and Wednesday
In a change to arrangements for P.E. from previous years, children will need to arrive at school on Tuesdays and Wednesday in clothes suitable for outdoor P.E.
Times tables will be tested on a Wednesday morning. We will include a times table focus daily in school and will start by recapping the 2s, 5s and 10s from Year 2.
Fun activities to help children learn their times tables
We use the Percy Parker CD for fun songs to help learn our times tables in school.
