Autumn 1 Week 6

Dear Parents,

We've had another productive week in Class 3. We have been working hard at learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and we have enjoyed writing our own version of Snow White.

In Geography we made up our own fact cards and compared two capital cities, London and Brasilia! 

In RE we wrote table contracts and discussed why it is important to keep our promises! 

We would like to remind all children and parents, that the homework is handed out every Tuesday and is due in the following Monday. Unfortunately we won't be able to mark the homework, if it is handed in late.

New spellings will go home every Tuesday and the spelling test is on the following Monday. We will be focusing on Common Exception words (also known as Tricky Words) for the rest of the term!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing lots of you next week for Family Week! 

Mrs Weston and Mrs Pateman

Autumn 1 Week 4

Another successful week in Class 3! 

In English this week we focused on writing instructions and in Maths we made amounts using different coins. We also worked out some very tricky Money Word Problems! 

This week we started learning our Harvest Poem, which we will be performing next Thursday 4th October during our Harvest Festival. The children have all got a copy of the lines they need to rehearse. We would be very grateful, if you could help your child to practise their verse at home!

As of next week, Mrs Pateman will write the spelling test score in the home spelling books. Any spellings that were incorrect will be highlighted in green. 

A little reminder that only Year 3 children are allowed to bring a pencil case into school. 

A lot of children have asked about show and tell. Your child will be given a date for their show and tell at some point in the next few weeks. 

We hope you have a lovely weekend!

Mrs  Weston and Mrs Pateman

Autumn 1 Week 2

Hello! 

We have had a great week in Class 3 practising Addition and solving simple word problems using our knowledge of Addition. In Literacy we read stories with a familiar setting and used our imagination to plan our own story, which we look forward to writing next week! 

In Geography we looked at a map of the UK and practised naming the four countries as well as their capital cities!

In PHSE we discussed how we wanted to treat each other in class. The children agreed that "we should listen to each other, be kind and never laugh if someone has something important to say."

In Science we sorted and classified different objects into groups: living, non-living and never been alive.

We have really enjoyed meeting new parents at the school gates and appreciate your patience especially at home time, as it is taking some time to remember all the new faces! 

We look forward to another week of fun in Class 3! 

Have a lovely weekend and see you next week!

Welcome Class 3!

Dear Class 3 parents,

It has been a busy first week in school and your children have made me feel very welcome here at St Ippolyts School.

It can be a big change for children when they first move from a Key Stage 1 class, but I have been really happy with the way they are managing the transition so far. I can’t wait to get to know the children better and I am sure we will have a fantastic year together.

Next week we will start homework as detailed on the curriculum leaflet.

If you have any queries or need to speak to me, please do get in touch via the main office; I look forward to meeting you all over the coming weeks.

Kind regards,

Miss Leake
