Welcome to Yellow class - Year 3
Welcome back, I hope you all had a lovely half term and are now refreshed and ready to learn for our last term together. We have lots of exciting new topics!
Remember that if you have to isolate and you are well, you will find your work on our joint remote learning page. Then you can email it to me.
Please read the information below to find out what you will be learning over the next term and to take note of some important information.
Start and finish times: Yellow class doors open at 8.45-8.50am ready for registration at 9.00am. The school day ends at 3.30pm. Please enter and exit through the junior entrance.
PE: PE is now on a Monday where the children will be swimming in the afternoon. Please ensure children wear a PE kit on this day as it is easier for them to get changed with this uniform. Remember swimming kits including a towel and swimming cap. We have a PE uniform and children must wear blue polo shirts, black joggers, leggings or shorts, and a black jumper. Children also need black or white trainers, not football trainers with any type of stud as these are dangerous and can mark the floor.
Please make sure reading books and diaries are brought into school daily.
Ensure all clothing is labelled.
Remember to bring a coat to school every day, we will play outside whatever the weather.
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.
Summer 1 Class Curriculum:
Literacy: The term we will start by reading and writing stories. We will then move on to newspaper reports. Alongside these units of work, the children will then have spelling, handwriting and grammar lessons.
Mathematics: The term starts with time and statistics, followed by addition and subtraction, mental and written multiplication, division and shape. In addition to these, the children will also have time to work on multiplication tables and mental arithmetic.
ART: Print and textiles
Computing: Audio editing
Homework and Spellings
Spellings will be handed out on Monday, there will no longer be a weekly spelling test, however the children will be expected to spell these words correctly in their independent writing, and there will be occasional spelling checks completed in class.
Learning Logs: Learning log homework will be given out at the beginning of each term.
Children are also expected to read their home reading books every night. These will be changed when they have done a quiz. If they have read their books they can read any other books at home and take part in their READING CHALLENGE!
Can I please ask that you sign your child's reading diary so I know they have completed their reading homework.
