Welcome to Yellow Class - Year 3
Hi Yellow Class,
We've had a great start to the year! Everyone seems to have easily settled into the new routines. Please try to remember to bring your reading book and reading record into school every day.
If you can't be in school, all the lessons we do in school will be on our class page so you can keep up with lessons. This will then need to be emailed in for me to mark.
For now use email@example.com. However we will be getting our own class email address soon.
We start this half-term with a topic based around the Paddington Bear stories. 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 half-term by looking at place value, addition and subtraction.
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 starting a new topic about the South Lake District looking at map work and field work.
Our theme will be to use textiles to create a Christmas stocking decoration.
The children will be investigating our new topic - electricity.
The focus for PE is target games. PE will be on a Monday 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.
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
