Meet the Teacher 2021/22

 

 

Welcome to Yellow Class - Year 3 - Summer 2

 

Hi everyone,

I hope that you are all keeping well and cheerful!

 

If you are at home isolating, there is plenty of school work that you can be getting on with including reading and completing quizzes on Accelerated Reader or practising times tables on TTRockstars! The work is all on the Joint Yellow, Lime and Orange webpage. If you need help then use the Yellow class homework email -

                  yellowhw@tonacliffe.lancs.sch.uk

 

Please email your work to me so I can keep track of your learning.

 

You can start learning the spellings for this week, they are on this web page. Ask an adult or older sister or brother to test you on your spellings this week on Thursday. Friday is a training day for teachers this week so you have an extra day's holiday!

 

Don't forget to keep reading and you can still do quizzes at home. Our word count is now over 1.7 million words! So with lots of super reading we will soon have read 2 million words!!

 

Keep active and cheerful!

04.03.21 World Book Day! The children shared their favourite books that they had brought in from home, Listened to the author and illustrator Jonny Duddle giving a masterclass about how he gets ideas for his books. We listened to exerts from a variety of audio books, made animal bookmarks, designed our own book tokens and did a word search. Best of all we made mini books and the children loved writing and drawing in them.

Spring 1 Learning log homework.

Home Learning
This is the Spring 2 home learning timetable for Yellow Class.

Home Learning:

All work from 01.02.21 will be on Remote Learning Lower Key Stage 2 -Yellow, Orange and Lime.

New work will be added on a Monday for the week. Just do each day's activities according to the home learning time table above. We will leave the previous week's work on for if you need to catch up.

Music

TT Rockstars

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.

Reading Quizzes 
Have a go at these 2Do's on Purple Mash

Numbots

You can now use your ttrockstars username and password to access Numbots from this website.

https://play.numbots.com/#/account/search-school.

This will give you different addition and subtraction activities. If you have any problems, please email hw@tonacliffe.lancs.sch.uk

 

Literacy

The Spring term topics are Novel as a Theme, Narrative and Persuasion.  We will be working on grammar and punctuation as well as continuing to develop our use of interesting vocabulary. Spellings will be sent home every Monday (the test will be on the following Monday). 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 be reading Stone Age Boy as a class.

 

Mathematics

We will start the term with the next steps for addition and subtraction. We will then move on to multiplication and division. We will also cover fractions, finding fractions of numbers, measures (g/kg,ml/l) and money.

You could support your child greatly by helping them to learn all their times tables at home. By the end of Year 3 the children should be confident in 2x, 5x, 10x, 3x, 4x, 8x tables. 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.

 

History

We will continue the Stone Age to Iron Age topic which we started at the end of last half-term.

 

Art

We are starting a new topic Drawing and Painting Faces which will link with our Stone Age History topic.

 

Science

The children will be investigating our new topic - Animals Including Humans/Animal Classification.

 

Computing

Coding - Events and Actions.

 

PSHE

Healthy Lifestyles - Healthy Eating/Growing and Changing and Mental Well-being.

 

PE

The focus for PE is dance. PE will be on a Tuesday and a Friday.

 

Music

General Information

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.

 

Reading

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.

 

Many thanks.
