Welcome to Yellow Class

Hi, hope you are all well and keeping busy. I've just had a look on the accelerated reader and some of you have got another certificate. Well done Lola you've earned your Independent Reader! Alfie, Harrison P, Harrison J, Emmie and Luca you have all earned your second Ready Reader! 

Also I noticed that our word count is 1 million 700,000! Only 300,000 words before we reach 2 million! Five of you have read over 100,000 words - Poppy H 108,000 -Ike 115,000 - George 125,000 - Lola 154,000. But Gracie has read a whopping 283,000 words! Brilliant!  I'd love to see any work you have completed. Best Wishes Mrs Rice.

Don't forget the Design Technology task.

Spring 2 Learning Log

The week beginning 09.03.20 was Science Week. The children in Yellow class used their knowledge from our Forces and Magnets topic to make Climbing Bugs, Hovering  Butterflies, Balancing Snakes and Zooming Balloons!
Thursday 5th March 2020 was World Book Day. Year 3 children all brought a potato into school decorated as a character from a book. Some children had also collected information about a famous author. The children had an enjoyable day making a pop-up book about a famous author. Also, they designed a book token to enter into a national competition.

Friday 14th February was International Book Swap Day. Thank you for all the books that were donated to school. Every child has taken one book that was brought into school. We hope the children will swap the books again when they have read them.

Tuesday 11th February was Safer Internet Day. The children joined in activities about keeping safe on the internet. We wrote some poems about keeping safe and had some good discussions. In these pictures the children have been given a scenario about online safety and go to the answer they think is the correct response (positioned around the classroom) in that situation. Then we discussed what they thought about it and what they would do in that situation.

Literacy

We start this half-term looking at stories with issues and dilemmas which is linked to our geography topic. Then, we will move on to diary writing which will be linked to a character from the class novel. We will continue to work 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 Thursday). 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.

 

Mathematics

We will start this half-term by continuing to build upon the children's understanding of formal addition and subtraction column method. Then, re-cap on multiplication and division strategies learnt last term and continue to build upon these strategies. We will develop our mental mathematics in particular mentally adding and subtracting. As well as looking at 3d shape, fractions, volume/capacity/mass and problem solving involving money and measure.

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.

 

Geography

We are continuing with our topic 'What On Earth', investigating world countries, mountains, volcanoes and rivers. 

 

Art

Our drawing theme will be linked to the class novel Skellig.

 

Science

The children will be investigating our new topic - Living Things and Their Habitats.

 

PE

Swimming will be on Wednesday and Thursday for certain children. Those children who are not going swimming will have both an indoor and an outdoor PE session on the same days. Your child will have been told if they are to continue to go swimming. The focus for PE is target games. 

Your child will only need trainers, not pumps.

Label all PE clothing, including footwear.

 

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.

 

 

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 Thursday.

 

Learning Log homework has been sent out for this half term, this is glued in the yellow learning log book. Please could these be returned to school by the last Wednesday before the end of term at the latest, although they can be returned on any Wednesday throughout this half term.

 

If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to call into school to speak to me.

 

Many thanks.

 

Mrs Rice
