Welcome to Yellow Class - Year 3
Hi Yellow Class!
Welcome back to the 2nd half of the Autumn term.
Our PE days will be back to Monday and Thursday afternoons from 09.11.20.
Please come in kit on these days.
However, please also see the new uniform policy as children are allowed to wear leggings/joggers and trainers every day.
If you can't be in school because you are self isolating work will be set for you on this page. There is also a separate remote learning page with lots of useful websites to try and some helpful advice. Work can now be emailed to me directly on email@example.com . Please send work in directly, rather than taking photographs of it - especially written work, as I often cannot read the work from photographed documents.
The children now have a ttrockstars account and have been shown how to use the programme in school. Using the programme is now part of the weekly homework.
Go to ttrockstars.com/login/54780 and enter the school name and the username and password that the children put in their diaries.
It is important that all children have some undisturbed time to do this and they must do it independently.
Certificates for the top three scores in the class will be given out on a Friday.
You can now use your ttrockstars username and password to access Numbots from this website.
This will give you different addition and subtraction activities. If you have any problems, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We start this half-term with a topic finding out about folk tales and poetry. We will be working on grammar and punctuation as well as continuing to develop our use of interesting vocabulary. Spellings will be sent home to learn on a weekly basis (the test will be on a Friday). Please encourage your child to learn how to spell these words – the children will continue to learn useful strategies that will help their learning.
Please make sure your child reads their reading book at least four times a week and sign their diary to reflect this.
We will start this 2nd half-term by continuing to look at, addition and subtraction. We will then move on to multiplication and division.
You could support your child greatly by helping them to learn all their times tables at home. The children will be able to practice their times tables by logging onto the https://ttrockstars.com website. Each Friday, certificates are given to the three children who have practiced the most that week. We will also be spending time in school working on times tables and we will have regular times table and arithmetic tests.
We are continuing our topic about the South Lake District looking at map work and field work.
We will start a new topic towards the end of this half-term about life during the Stone Age and the Iron Age.
We will continue be to use textiles to create a Christmas stocking decoration.
The children will be investigating our new topic - light.
The focus for PE is dance. PE will be on a Tuesday and a Thursday.
PLEASE LABEL YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING. PLEASE ALSO LABEL HATS, SCARVES AND GLOVES AS SO MANY OF THESE END UP IN LOST PROPERTY; NAMES WOULD MAKE IT EASIER FOR ITEMS TO BE RETURNED.
Please ensure your child reads at least four times a week at home and have their diary signed by the person who listens to them read. Ensure your child brings their reading book and diary into school every day as opportunities will arise for reading throughout the week. All children will have a guided reading session at least once a week with a teacher.
Help your child learn their times tables up to 12 x 12.(https://ttrockstars.com)
Homework will be given out each Friday. Spellings will be tested on a Friday.
If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to call into school to speak to me.
